week 487 ~ an incantation for spring

with one comment

an incantation for spring
wait in anticipation
‘til winter banished birds sing

teeter on faith desiring
days of warmth blue skies and sun
an incantation for spring

weeks turn to months lingering
cold distracts all hopes undone
‘til winter banished birds sing

songs that catch our ear ending
snow’s silent insulation
an incantation for spring

holding on ready to fling
windows wide still frustration
‘til winter banished birds sing

we see them in our dreams wing
their way north our fixation
an incantation for spring
‘til winter banished birds sing

week 450 ~ there is a scent of green in the air

leave a comment »

there is a scent of green in the air
breathe in and exhale leaving flowers
as you pass they bloom the weather’s fair
there is a scent of green in the air
a smile pauses to look lingers there
while joy transforms minutes to hours
there is a scent of green in the air
breathe in and exhale leaving flowers

week 342 ~ if all you need is love

with 2 comments

me.401if all you need is love
just reach out and grab it
for when push comes to shove
if all you need is love
to bloom to soar above
make it your new habit
if all you need is love
just reach out and grab it

week 338 ~ I open my heart

with 2 comments

me.339

I open my heart
though it feels empty
tear reason apart
I open my heart
press hope press restart
as life preempts me
I open my heart
though it feels empty

week 336 ~ as the circle completes itself

with 2 comments

me.336as the circle completes itself
loose dreams tied up with hopeful string
unravel and the smell of spring
is silently knocked off the shelf
what one never believed one’s self
our casually placed desires
mistakes to feed countless fires
set while we weren’t even paying
attention blindly displaying
our nonchalance toward quagmires

week 335 ~ there is just something about

with 2 comments

me335there is just something about
a sunny day warm dreamy
half close your eyes grin and shout
look around there you’ll see me

 a sunny day warm dreamy
a baby’s smile bursts open
look around there you’ll see me
chortle flap your arms now when

 a baby’s smile bursts open
the height of pure happiness
chortle flap your arms now when
all you imagine is bliss

the height of pure happiness
when turmoil’s over through
all you imagine is bliss
a day with nothing to do

when turmoil’s over through
there is just something about
a day with nothing to do
half close your eyes grin and shout

week 296 ~ flowers grow rain falls

with 2 comments

 

me 296aflowers grow rain falls
pausing we sit here
as mystery calls

our name as if all’s
fair and skies could clear
flowers grow rain falls

and each one enthralls
time so have no fear
as mystery calls

for the future sprawls
and dreams draw it near
flowers grow rain falls

 our innocence stalls
each still unshed tear
as mystery calls

out beyond these walls
listen and you’ll hear
flowers grow rain falls
as mystery calls

week 292 ~ a sonnet for baby S sound the horns

with 2 comments

me.292a sonnet for baby S sound the horns
so long coming so welcome in our hearts
see he grins and wriggles with a newborn’s
instinct for the right reaction then starts
to coo non-word words whose subtext imparts
a comfort being here with us so new
and yet exactly right worry departs
with winter’s snows and somehow we are through
to bluer skies and smiles yes crying too
for he firmly announces something’s wrong
until we figure out what we should do
but spring now fills our days with light and song
and we sing too breathing the scented air
for this sweet boy the answer to our prayer

my first Spenserian sonnet

week 288 ~ dance on close your eyes

with 2 comments

me.288dance on close your eyes
pain won’t go away
nevermind time flies

it takes a few tries
to find a new way
dance on close your eyes

and wait for blue skies
though spring just won’t stay
nevermind time flies

dreaming sometimes buys
respite for a day
dance on close your eyes

and soon they’ll realize
it’s your turn to play
nevermind time flies

life comes in your size
so jump in the fray
dance on close your eyes
nevermind time flies
