Summer

Summer awakens, from an afternoon dream, uncurling with flair, and scheming with charms. Makes up her bed with the sand in her hair, merrily shaking a red gingham spread, extracting a hotdog, and tossing the bread, raising her eyes, as a seagull is fed

Frangipani

~~    ~~    ~~

F lowering   clusters   amidst   a  green   canopied  tree,
R adiant  sight ,  the  exotic  flowers  golden - white.
A  sweet scented  fragrance,  from  petals  dew  drops  drip,
N estled   in   emerald   trees  at  their  branch  tips.
G od's   showers   in   my   flower   garden,
I nnate  beauty  upon  earthly  paradise.
P icked   by  pretty  maidens  to  adorn  their  hair,
A llures  my  heart  to  see  the  flowery  affair.
N ature's   blossoms  in  golden  spring,
I mpression  of   jewels  unfolding.

Hula dancers of Hawaii wear them in their hair.

Objurgatory Crow

Objurgatory crow lookout
Cawing to obdurate friends
Telling them to flee fall garden
Opossum grins by Persimmon
Because berries gone as are figs
Every animal has eaten fill
Ready now for winter's rest

Autumn Delight

As cooler air replaces summer's heat,
Unbridled joy bursts forth so sweet.
Truly autumn is a wondrous time of year,
Ushering in cool breezes and warm cheer.
Metamorphosis turns green leaves to red and gold,
Nature's lush palette unveiled for all to behold.

Dancing leaves twirl hither and thither to the ground,
Enchanting us with their waltzes as they go round.
Little children form them into piles, then jump in.
Innocent, carefree fun reminds us when,
Growing up we once played the same as they,
Helter skelter, tossing, crunching leaves all day.
Truly autumn is my favorite season of them all.

Winter Acrostic

Wind and frost have come to bite our noses while 
Images of glistening snow sparkle in the moonlight.
Nights in this valley have brought us a taste of heaven,
Tranquil scenes we see while taking our evening stroll.
Everyone in their houses getting ready for evening in silence,
Reaching home we cuddle drinking cocoa by the fireplace enjoying winter.

Dynamic Autumn

Days of autumn enter late September,
Yearly glory in hues to remember.
Naked limbs cling to mem’ries of summer
As cool longer nights lead to sweet slumber.
Mountain tops catch the first drifts of snow
Inviting cold winds to the valleys below.
Copious colors patch a quilt beneath trees

And nature again gifts a harvest to please.
Under horizons of soft orange skies
The gathering of pumpkins soon will arise.
Upon Halloween each carved funny face
Meets with delight as children thrill to place
New costumes on for ‘trick or treat’ fun.

Spectacular October

Overhead, skeins of geese begin their annual flight.
Colorful robes of foliage adorn the trees for our delight.
Towering mountains wear crowns of glistening snow.
Over earth the harvest moon casts it's mellow glow.
Babbling brooks will soon be covered with shimmering ice.
Enterprising squirrels gather their winter's fare to suffice.
Radiant sunsets are painted by the Master Artist that are so nice!

WISCONSIN

We are known for our football, bratwurst, and beer,
Iridescent blue lakes with fresh waters, crystal clear,
Summer's sun blazes hot enough to make skin burn,
Cheese producing dairy farms are around every turn,
Our bright autumn leaves change their colors with ease,
Near spring, the scent of lilac floats upon the breeze,
Snowy winters, with temperatures below zero degrees,
In our green forests, raccoons and deer have a home,
Near the roadside, wildflowers grow wherever you roam.

Harley-Davidson was born, where the eagles fly free,
Wisconsin is as close to heaven, as home can be.

The Sun Rises- -The Moon Sets

These were set in motion from the beginning of time.
Heavens abound in each of their glory, power sublime.
Every excursion that they set upon revolves in rhyme.

Solar orb that secures life upon this planet we dwell.
Universally seen around our globe, for all to tell,
Never tiring it revolves, captured within its cell.

Rising up from its core, flares of powerful streams.
I respect what has risen from the sunny beams.
Sharing the glory that it has upon everyone, it seems.
Evident by the life that it supports even in dreams,
Solar star of daylight hours continue as nature deems.

Till nightfall approaches while another completes the set.
Helping to guide travelers for centuries the positions to get,
Evening ignites different phases upon this satellites debt.

Monthly revolutions of this celestial body sway the hours.
Orbital bliss has spoken richly along with romantic flowers.
Opening souls in sensuality and fulfilling romantic powers.
New moon to which many have fell into its magical showers.

Splendor of the night as it falls to set upon the new dawns light.
Exemplary versions follow a pattern, which marvels natural sight.
Take notice of what you may be missing each upcoming night.
Said, I’ve heard, old sailors delight, shining, enchantingly bright.

SEASONS

Springing and bounding like a lamb 
Playfully, gamboling over the ground.
Rumbles of thunder assaulting the ear
Incessant lightning, earth trembling in fear.
Nature is fickle, and inscrutably wild,
Glowing with vigor--an unruly child.

Shimmering heat waves swim and rise, 
Under the blazing, noonday skies.
Mercury rising, seeking the sky.
My vision is bleary--sweat in my eyes.
Everyone wondering, “When will it end?” 
Remembering winter--bring it again.

Autumn colors flaming bright
Under azure autumn light.
Tender hearts holding fast 
Untold feelings from the past.
Mellow, yellow, harvest moons, 
Night time bonfires, off-key tunes.

White snow blanketing fallen leaves,
Icicles forming on dripping eaves.
North wind moaning through the trees,
Temperature falling below the knees.
Eagerly waiting for robins to sing,
Readily awaiting arrival of spring.

September Harvest Moon

S erenade under the harvest moon,
E mbrace the melody of its tune;
P ulsing rich veins to excite,
T ransmitting love tonight.
E mbers burn red from its glow,
M easureless affections overflow,
B efore the moment fails to bestow;
E mbodying under harvest moon,
R eminiscing its seductive tune.

Winter Wonderland Acrostic

White is the landscape as far as I can see.
Ice is the brook that is in close proximity.
Nights are much longer than the days.
Toward the south is the bird that no longer stays.
Everyone is aware of the time of the season.
Roosting is indoors, and the cold is the reason.

Winter is here, whether you like it or not.
On it being cold until March, bet everything you’ve got.
Not much going on outside until the warmth arrives.
Dwelling near the heater is how we will live our lives.
Even the animals know better than to go out in the cold.
Running outside?  You have to be very bold.
Lazy me.  I will spend much of my time in bed.
All the cabin fever can easily mess up my head.
Nothing to do?  Honey, I say we have it made.
Dear, get closer to me.  I’m in the mood to get laid.

Blow Bitter Wind

Before we were ready
Last days of summer came.
October blew in
With an abundance of rain.
Biting cold wind
Instead of warm sun
Told us Autumn was here,
Too soon it's begun.
Early mornings, now dark,
Remind us winter is nigh.
Wind blows and blows
In the grey clouded sky.
November is next, blustery and bold.
December will follow, bitter and cold.

Rhapsody of Fall, October

O Onto peaks the setting sun has splashed its brilliant red.
C Clouds cavort in skies cerise as geese soar overhead.
T Trees along the mountains’ ridges, trembling in the breeze,
O Ostensibly flaunt leaves bright scarlet, tangerine and gold.
B Beautific and bedazzling, and the mundane now flees.
E Eventide’s evtravaganza, such bliss to behold -
R Rhapsody of fall, October has me in its hold.

A Lone Leaf Falls

A lone leaf falls
Lifted by the breeze
On it's lonely journey
Nearing it's bed 'neath the trees.
Early Autumn's upon us,
Leaves are changing 'fore our eyes.
Each one, in turn, will fall
and 'neath the tree will lie.
Falling leaves are the start.
Frost will next be here
And summer's warmth forgotten,
Left behind for another year.
Leaves of red and gold everywhere
Say Autumn's definitely in the air.

September

Sounds of school children readying for the new year
Evening’s light diminishes a little more each day
People put away lawn furniture and bring out their rakes
Television starts its new season of shows
Empty swimming pools are closed until next summer
Morning has a brisk scent in the air
Buses of yellow add to the early traffic
Everyone grabs a jacket or sweater when they head out the door
Remember summer and let it keep you warm until it comes again

Harvest Moons

Hanging high in the autumn's ebon sky,
A Harvest Moon is so majestic to this beholder's eye!
Rays gently caress God's good Earth far below.
Vast is the reach of its calming, mellow glow.
Each silent passing of that eternal orb stirs feelings of romance,
Sharing it with my love as it traverses the heavens' vast expanse!
Trees raising arms as if in homage, clad in brilliant robes of gold,
Mark the passing of the Harvest Moon as they have from old.
Orbiting Mother Earth as it has done since the dawn of creation.
Octogenarian tho' I am, it yet fills my being with inspiration!
None but He could sate this mere mortal's soul with such a view.
So soon, all too soon, I must bid the Harvest Moon a sad adieu.

A Winter Sport--double acrostic--

Amidst the cold climate we enjoyed sled riding.
We also had so much fun building an igloo.
I felt alive in those days, hardly any woes.
Now you may say that this is no sport at all.
Take heed that even the Olympics have these.
Every winter so many do this thing that I bid,
Racing, swaying, these and more we did savor.
Sled riding is easier, though many enjoy to ski.
Pleasant fresh aromas of winter always spread.
Outward and inward like a bitter cold safari.
Riding upon a sled by setting or lying down,
Takes control of our lives in childlike blessing.


My first double acrostic,,,inspired by a contest,,,first letter of each sentence spells out title and the last letter in each sentence spells out the subject..

Spring, Summer, Autumn Winter

Spring Summer Autumn Winter              Acrostic Poetry.

              "Spring"
Seeking political office is getting hard,
Party politics needs more vigor in this regard:
Republicans must try more to deliver their views
In order to organize the people, without any excuse;
Nowadays, Democrats are getting stronger, after
Gaining control of the White House and the Senate altogether.

              "Summer"
Some people think, and it's a true fact, that
Unless Republicans try to review their policy tact,
Many of their seats will be lost in congress,
Mainly some seats in the Senate, also some of the seats they control
Especially in the House: they will have to review and
Revise their conservative norms, regarding Immigration Reforms.

             "Autumn"
America needs a strong leader
Under the present day economic conditions
To lower the country's debt of over 14 trillions dollars:
Until and unless we try to cut down spending and
Most of us try to reduce excessive wastes,
No amount of effort will save the country from disaster.

             "Winter"
We the people think that
In this country it was
Never the right thing,
To increase excessive spending,
Even if we could afford to spend it.
Responsibility lies in all of us to reduce the nation's debt.

September

Sunshine, still bright and warm by day,
Evenings are so much cooler now.
Pretty soon winter will be on its way,
Too soon Summer takes her final bow.
Easily Summer slips into Fall,
Maple trees turn to colourful hues.
Beautiful oranges and reds and yellows
Entice photographers with their views.
Rightly, for its beauty, September I'd choose.

SEPTEMBER

September comes blowing a cooling breeze,
Escorting Summer on her way.
Pretty yellow and gold colored leaves,
Teased by the wind dance and play.
Exciting colors of orange and red,
Make the Maples a firey hue.
Bedecked so gaily from toe to head,
Ethereal Fall imbues,
Richness as Summer makes her bed.

AUTUMN

Autumn moaning cuddles gold neath shivering trees
Umbels peddling day's new cologne dancing in breeze
Trancelike all day rose the soft quarrelling of bees
Uberty bartering joy on fruit laden leas
Multicolored fairs and ladies pretty to please
Nature bringing me down bended on thankful knees.

Auspicious winds tell tales of honey laden trees
Udders pendulous with the syrup sap of life, 
Temperatures chilling honey for freshborn bees
Urgently uttering the flowering of strife
Man is here today and gone tomorrow, time's fife
Note upon note sweetly stirs the changes of life.

Sadness of November


Nights bring longer darkness, all I want to do is sleep,

Outside the weather worsens, the snow will soon be deep.

Vines heavy with grapes await to be made into ice wine,

Each headache after, is worth it, from the nectar so sublime.

Making pumpkin pie and sipping apple cider - ACHOO!

Better make chicken soup too, now I’ve got the Flu.

Everything is warning me that old man winter is on its way,

Recognizing this sad reality, oh yes, its also another birthday!

Late Equinox Acrostic

Listless, the rains come falling on empty hands.
Ashen hands, that stirred the last embers, worried
the skies would not give way against the raging sun
even though the forecast called and called, no rains.

Entering like ants, the clouds wisp and invade.
Quiescence of smoke, like camouflage for sky
unclear of intent to blind or hunt or cackle,
illicit due to negligence and addressed the same,
nebulous rain, becomes our hoped for refrain.
Outside the mirror of our longing for rest, exploded
X-fire in color, sound and fire, progress toward our prayers.

November breezes in, 
Obliterating the remnants of October
Vacuously announcing its intentions to 
Embrace the sky and all is over

Rampant days of tomorrow

My Only Blessing is Peace Earned

The beginning of my thanks begins at knees,
Having my aches eased, or body suffused,
All that comes to mind is sleep and serene.
Nobody that offers bread can empty,
Knives may cut meat and find platter greasy,
Supper ended, dishes done, there’s always cheer.
Give one for the road, one for tomorrow,
Invest within self, hugs or tomato growing,
Venture into unknown so what is known
Is another taste that takes you back to home.
Nothingness can fill everyone’s hands if home
Gives back to our bodies and delivers to me peace.

Winter Wonderland

Walk across the frozen fields
Inhale the frosty air
Nap before a blazing fire
The tall tales that we share
Etching angels in the snow
Reward the inner child

Wage a friendly snowball fight
Obsess, let joy run wild
Nutmeg eggnog with cinnamon
Deep snowbanks edge the lane
Everything is fresh and new
Replacing autumns wane
Lakes attract the skaters
And to hills the skiers go, I'm
Never more alive then when I'm
Dancing in the snow

THE LEAF-PAVED PATH

Toddlers played in dry sand 
Hot sun made each cheek red
Ellen was their likable friend
Long before winter came
Enjoyed evenings with them
Always refusing to rest 
Fireflies were a child's game
Puppies chased them with haste
Aunt Lily was often bitten by bugs smelling perfume 
Vera told her not to scratch
Eddy laughed hard as Mitch
Daniel loved to startle the busy bees 
People stopped to watch the comedy of pet peeves
Across the leaf-paved path of ripe strawberries 
Torrents washed away all the pretty greens 
Hurricane Isaac made them flee quicker than thieves

Mangoes, local palm's gifts and other fruits

E ndothermic bodies that sink extra heat
R efreshed and trim,  it is COOL summer times.

November Nightfall

Nadir of this momentous year is reached.
Ominous opaque shapes shift in tightly locked rooms;
valediction of autumn's colour-crackling leaves.
Encroaching shadows approach with soot-soft stealth,
mysteriously merging, emerging from clouded corners -
bleak charcoal smudges menacing in murky light.
Endless darkness unravelling all around me;
rooms in my mind painted every shade of night.

Pumpkins

Pretty fall colors carved and decorated
Understandably the best in a cream covered pie
My favorite flavor is the cheesecake
Plump and lumpy or perfectly orange
Kill it with a shotgun after halloween
I love to watch the scrambled pieces fly in the air
Never let the Jack o lantern go to waste!!
Seeds left on the ground, grow next year!

Autumn

Autumn arrives and trees are brown
Up comes the wind, leaves tumbling down
They do not make the slightest sound
Upon the ground they formed a tapestry of colors
Merrily furling and swirling as the wind comes puffing by
No seasons has such beauty as this autumnal face.

Autumn Leaves Fall

As the autumn leaves fall
Under trees no longer green
The wind places them in a collage.
Upon the lawn, a mural seen.
Moving softly on the wind,
Neatly floating to the ground
Leaves in coloured layers lie
Everywhere, beneath and around.
As the autumn leaves fall,
Vibrantly coloured in red and gold,
Entirely covering the ground that was
Such a few days ago, green and bold.
Falling leaves on the wind
Arriving at our feet to lie,
Lift our spirits up and yet
Lay them low again that summer's gone by.

Autumn

All had sown our talents,

Under the scorched sun of season past;

Today we dwell in harvest abundance,

Unto the autumn be the glory,

Mounts of reward,season of yield;

Now we are truly the kings.

Autumn Adornment

   "Autumn Adornment"


Astounding color palette fashions fragrant Fall scene
Umbrella potpourri and confetti silhouettes
Translucent leaves lie golden carpeting Season's theme
Unique designs of rainbow hues as sleeping marionettes
Marmalade branches grace heavenly heights array
Neath yellow Moon and golden Sun display.

Adornments of Autumn woven in palatial tapestry
Drifting leaves gliding on a silky velvet breeze
Ornate oasis painted by God's great majesty
Reflecting aromas of chilly air crisping through bare trees
Nuturing cool changes as shorter days embark
Mesmerized  by thoughts of happy holidays
Eloquent visuals cascade as beauty invades the dark
Nurtured by the Fall feeling of gracious ways
Transcendieng throughout Autumn with adornments ablaze.

Fall Foliage


F ire on horizon this time of year,
A utumn ushers in winter’s sear.
L ight slowly fades a bit each day,
L ess time now for outdoor play.

F loods of colour on the trees,
O ccur before the big freeze.  
L eaves scatter as rain falls, 
I t’s our warning - winter calls.
A maple leaf gives the best show,
G olds, reds, orange all aglow.
E njoyed by all - a Thanksgiving.

Hay Ride



Hanging on tightly over bumps along the way
Around the barn and through the fields we sway
Young ones chatter, laugh and play

Rusty red, the autumn hills are grand
Inspire words to write about the land
Delightful afternoon , my heart sings
Enjoying the warmth that autumn brings

Summer and What It Means To Me

Sand dunes reflecting blazing heat burn tiny feet. 
Undulating waves wash the shores with their cooling.
Morning Glory vines climb high offering a nectar treat. 
Mockingbirds soar above gardens, insect seeking.
Every school-aged child enjoys long awaited freedom.
Remembering what they learned lost on their tandem.
 
Aphids, mosquitoes and dragonflies are out chomping.
Nests are empty and birds are on the wing, singing.
Dutiful adults teach life skills to offspring, adoring.
 
Wonderfully, dawn’s first light begins with radiant glows.
Honey fills the honeycomb; bees pollinate bright flowers.
A young squirrel leaps from limb to limb as he grows.
Towers appear in yards as ants busily work for endless hours.
 
Immediacy is somehow interlaced with peaceful singing.
The children visit libraries, nymphs, gremlins and princesses reading.
 
Marvelous are the mechanics of our ever-changing world.
Eternity comes to mind, as beauty fills the summer, steadfastly.
Another year amid the intricately interwoven creatures swirled.
Not by chance, but by design, the mind of God created wisely.
Survival strategy: genetic variability amid each species' seed.
 
Temperatures rise; all living, hope for the sound of rain showers.
Over the rise on a future day, cooling winds will bring fall.
 
Meanwhile, this is summer and what it means to me.
Exquisitely fashioned nature to make mundane cares flee.

WINTER

When winter comes ,demand for warmth is more due to falling
Ice which makes the  environment cozy and white .
Not only water surfaces are frozen ;birds and others migrating,
Temperature keeps falling as chimneys and heaters reduce this plight,
Extreme one leads to snow traps ,though snow play is fun.
Rate of taking alcohol is high, and thick clothing are worn.

Winter Wonderland

When out on the lawn green grass grew everywhere,
I knew in a moment that no snowman was there.
No child in the town would see a white Christmas.
The ice in the rink arrived man-made and fogless.
Excited boisterous children laughed and slip-slid around.
Rip-roarious the winter wonders in a warm southern town.
 
What fantastic fantasies fill malls in Florida winters? 
Opulent brilliance, colorful lights bedecked and blinkers. 
Noble elves work inside at each new on site workshop.
Delightfully watching children gleam with eyes all lit up.
Exceptional imaginations and a warm winter show.
Reality slips into fantasy as cherry faces start to glow.
Love in the air mingles with scents of bayberry.
Adults all around adorning, become merry.
Not one child misses winter in their Florida town.
Dependably on time, Santa always comes around.

OCTOBER

October departs without
Concern of things it leaves behind.
The trees are stark and bare, no more
Offerings of color to enshrine, as 
Brilliant hues are put to bed, only
Evergreens are left to stand the
Rustling air as November rears its ugly head

AUTUMN COLORS 2

Autumn colors are produced by transformation of pigments
Undetectable by the naked eyes;this color initially
Transforms green to yellow and orange,then red complements
Under bright sunny days,and cool nights following partially
Many trees display their brightest colors during the day,
New leaves are protected from the harmful effects of light,
Chlorophyll absorbs blue light before reflecting the ray,
On the leaves which absorb blue-green and make it bright,
Leaf peepers observe this foliage display with serious keen,
Often children born during this Fall are said to live longer,
Red leaves on apples which attract birds and insects are seen,
Shedding of leaves before snowfalls makes trees stronger.

October

Only now I realise that summer has finished
Cold mornings and foggy skies
The early evening light diminished
Orange leaves dance like butterflies
Baked pumpkins, carved faces
Excited children, ghostly places
Reward with treats or a trick in store.

AUTUMN COLOURS

Amber tints the harvest moon while chimneys, again, heave hazy sighs

Umber puddles invite schoolyard boots as geese part an iris sky

Topaz fields grow pumpkins and golden gourds trim our Thanksgiving 

Ultra-violet days are long gone for fall’s hues are more forgiving

Maroon festoons tall maple trees, grey squirrels chatter while blue jays play

Navy umbrellas shield pale faced heroes come Remembrance Day

October's Gifts

Of all the months, the days of October
Call to me with a voice  like no other
The harvest almost done, silos filling
Over night the color palate changes
Birds have gathered for their flight 
Enchantment of the year's first fireside
Renewing rest of winter soon to come

Autumn

Amplitude of seasoning--spicy colors, zesty scents,
Unbridled passion conceals a crumbling heart;
Twilight violins in tumult bow strident cacophony,
Unmasking the harvest madness in the corn.
Maternal? Never! So unlike her sister Spring,
Nonconforming Bohemian is all Autumn plans to be.

Replete refreshments for the body, mind, and soul.

November

Now the winter has arrived,
Our breath suspended in the cold winter air.
Very soon the snow will blanket the ground.
Early sunsets are no longer rare.
Morning's dark when we arise.
By the time work's done, its dark again.
Every glimpse of sun is a prize.
Rain is upon us now....snow and rain.

Winter

Whispering color--whites, grays, icy blues, and browns,
Ice-intoxicated, Winter gyrates upon a crystal floor,
Naked, boldly iridescent in a freezing wrap of snow;
Temperance abandoned, the calming virtue her character avoids,
Eventually her dazzle will be forced latitudes away
Retreating the waxing sun's revitalizing rays.

B asking in the morning sun,
E njoying that the school years done,
A bsorbing the vast, crystal, blue sky,
C leansing water from the ocean rushes by,
H anging on to every sound,
B orrowing in the sand that’s all around,
L uscious strawberry’s, grapes and a peach,
A n astounding day at the beach,
K indly I help put lotion on a woman’s back,
E ven on the beach my manors are still intact,
T hen suddenly dark clouds quickly move in,
B efore I make it to the board walk the rain begins,
I  do not seem to even mind,
N othing is better than a shower, in this heat, at this time,
G oing towards the car I start to dance,
O verwhelmed with joy, I continue with a pitter-patter prance.

Carousel Floating

Circular motion within the blue hue upward,
As bright as the wondrous crystals below,
Reflections glare, shadowing things unheard.
Only at daybreak will we understand its glow.
Until dusk shall you see power, it does hold.
Solar orb of glory, which gives life to all,
Evangelical design drives away natures cold.
Listen you may hear the sizzle of this ball.

From winter to spring, growing closer everyday,
Living creatures await the warmth it brings.
Our hearts and minds, warmed in every way.
As it devours, the frigid cold and nature sings.
Take notice that it still warms us on days of gray.
Igniting passion, delivering precious new beginnings,
Never faltering continuing its carousel of play,
Glowing solar flares proceed above floating wings.

Natures Treasure Chest

Natural glory is ours from Heaven’s sun.
Always continuing blessed from above.
True vivid colors to see lots of fun,
United and bonded out of God’s love.
Rebirthing of blooms again and again,
Explicit beauty flows from every petal.
Spiritually glowing, glistening again and again,

Toward the sky shining like metal,
Rewards not only from beauty alone,
Each of us enjoys the bounty that we eat.
All the fruits and vegetables so well known,
Sensual tastes and smells a special treat.
Up from the root nutrient flow,
Releasing so many flavors that cannot be weak,
Exploding with vitamins to make us glow.

Challenge not the prizes from our earth.
Health is a treasure we all should seek.
Each of us should have had since birth.
Search for hearty, silver and gold every week.
Toil not; devour Mother Nature’s worth.

Summer's Moon

Summer moon, bright in the sky.
Up you go in the night, I wonder why?
Maybe it could be the sun, chasing you away.
Maybe it could be the light awakening you, so you stay.
Everything, yes everything will be okay.
Rising with the moon, the stars may follow.

Maybe they hide, shy of tomorrow.
On a summer's night
Only the sun shall arise again.
Now my Summer's moon, will you be my friend?

Orange and yellow, brown and red,
Colours abound in this Autumn season.

Ending our Autumn, all too soon.
Retiring its reign, with the full harvest moon.

Spring

Surrepitiously beginning beneath the icy crust
Perforatting green swords, minute, prick toward the sun,
Ravenously eager to spread Spring's floral dawn.
In open view nature copulates, animal and flower,
Naive, the way it is in Paradise.
God's glory gestures grace renewed to all the earth.

AUTUMN IS A CAPTOR



Acorns stud damp concrete like buttons torn from autumn’s coat,

Undressed trees blush crimson, almost this drizzle’s antidote,    

Today the clouds scurry as people refill each café,

Umbrellas are shaken, shut and then quickly tucked away,

My book stays closed, too, for the window has longer chapters,

Next to its view, I soon learn a season can be our captor.

Oh, to mourn the death of a season
Causing dread for the prediction of nature
Trampling through leaves plummeted from glory
Overt manipulations of human emotions
Barters the time of years gone by
Everlasting cycles of gain and loss
Remembrance eases the transition

Sneaking a few minutes from each day’s waning sun
Each sunrise is later up, and its setting partner earlier down.
Pigeons will soon be the only fliers left in the town:
The migrants are going, or are packing bags quickly,
Escaping to the  warmth and song of the south country.
My pansies are spreading without my restraint daily
Because they know it’s last chance to colonise extra turf:
Each fading beauty desperate to cling to mother-earth,
Reaching down for sustenance now in dearth.

Light and Life

Petrified, broken, and lifeless, 
Earth lies below virgin snow flakes.
At its zenith the moon’s caress,
Cold light, falls on white cloak and lake.
Empyrean suns give voids brightness.

Orchids, blue berries, and pine line the lake.
New fish school under the heat haze, land bakes.

Empty souls bask frozen and lean 
Aurora unleashed joins light dance 
Ribons reach for their silver queen
The trees sway, caught in heaven’s trance.
Hear lonely wind sigh through evergreens

Nearest to the end of the fall season we all know.
Our last look at beauty that unfolds in glow,
Visions of color falling everywhere we go.
Every wooded escape has transformed slow.
Magical colors have faded, nakedness now show.
Bare branches thrive, which nature does bestow.
Everyone awaits the freshness of the first fallen snow.
Rewinding time, nature prepares for cold winds to blow.

September leaves fallen and flew towards the empty sky.
enchanting my world to bring glorious color,
purple, gold, and yellow shades that sing a blue chorale.
That echoes beneath the silence of September fall, to

Bringing back the old familiar string of yesterday, to
engulf every note that sways on dancing clouds
remembering the dance step, I forget somehow.

Cherish the new born king
Hark the herald and
Ring the toll bells
It's Christmas time again and
Santa is on his way as the
Tinsel is strewn and mistletoes are hung
Mama got caught once again 
Alone kissing a guy dressed in red
So I dashed to my window and through open the shutters
Looking upon the roof
Over and over again I somehow now
Vow to remain true in
Even believing in this little Christmas tale of a hymn

Awakening Spring (double acrostic and end line word)

Around the corner, the sun will show its new face after                               A
Well earned time of having endured through the cold of                              Winter.
Anticipation is felt as nature burgeons and animals wake                            Anew
Keenly sensing the coming of spring with all its love felt in its                      Kaleidoscopic
Emergence of colors everywhere and its fragrances brought by the             Elements.
Nature at its youth, feeling the excitement throughout, that we all                Naturally
Instinctively experience rebirth within the fiber of our hearts; yet still          Intimidated,
Not having yet forgotten the frozen breath of the dying icy season. But        Now
Gratitude moves into the soul from the lessons learned, and we thank         God.

Sweetly, we turn our eyes to the heavens above for the blessing of its          Smile
Pleasantly blowing to us in fragrant love with the breezes and the waters,      Preparing
Rebirth of nature, and the birds sing us their songs of love while                   rigorously
Investing their all in the building of their nest for their offspring,  so              impatient,
Nagging at times to their loved ones, then making it all a fun game to play.   Nature
Gathering their families and I remember my parents for whom I thank          God.

Enchantment of Summer

Excitement begins before the first day of the season.
New plants are rising upwards to feel the warm sun.
Changing the green flowing show, for some reason,
Heaving the stems mounted with color just for fun.
Alone grows the Bachelor Button though clustered so.
Nearer to the ground, delight of the marigold shows,
Taking note of others such as the Morning Glorys show,
Miracles happen each day, when the Moonflowers close.
Each glorious color that spreads widely to be seen,
Nearer to Heaven, the scents recover brisk and clean.
Travel the countryside the beauty develops every scene.

Our hearts will gladly delight in every bud that sets to open.
From even wildwood plants that survive, no thanks to men.

Since the beginning of time and even into the future, we name.
Universally new species after loved ones we hold so dear.
Memories of Susan take upon one of humanity’s shame.
Many of the soubriquets whisper, many things sincere.
Every detail surrounds their beauty, is summers fame.
Revelry of the duration drives the enchantment so clear.

A Season's Beauty

Spring brings on a pleasant change when nothing around us remains the same.

People are skirting about the more-

Running to and fro, enjoying the great outdoors;

Imaginations are beginning to fly just like the birds up in the sky.

Nature has again performed a glorious and wondrous thing---

Getting every thing:  the flowers, trees, birds, etc., ready for a new season - 
SPRING!

Blossom

 I rise out of 
this  perpetual 
secrete 
dream season-
gifted with 
quixotic acumen      
osirus     like    
effortlessly ascending 
thru 
barren eternal 
death smoke....
 on raw, 
porcelain smoothe 
night winds 
with 
the illusionary  motionless
ness of 
huming bird wings 
dancing    
naked and wild 
beneath  reasons   
brilliant  lunacy  
to the 
shadow magic song 
of 
universal infinity
translucent star beams
replace 
skin and bones
restrictions-
now free of fear and
dogmatic convictions-
one with worm echo,
demons and witches-
life is a precious thing-
be careful how you
live it-

You've Been Warned

Holy Crap
Another year slips away
Put on like 30 pounds
Pertty hard to take off
You see I like sea food I see it and eat it

Now with muse in hand
Even Jenny Crank has stepped up to the plate
With how to shed 14 inches off waistline in 1 week

You first have to eat 2 bars of exlax chocolate of course
Even choke down some of grannys castrol oil
Ass will be sore for a little while
Remember though the box and bottle does say warning 




Little Pun For The New Me

Happy New Year's All

The Rain Lily

The majestic, strong-willed beauty I hardly know
Hued in perfection of limpid white, pink and yellow
Ever steady and loyal to the rich soil I’ve never sow

Rendering sweet bloom, even if, my summer waned
Alive always at the onset of rain…of sorrow and pain
At the lowest ebb of life, a smile, from you I truly gain
Nurturing in silence the swollen heart, again and again

Lovely charm of floral trumpet shaped lives, without me
In a tiny pot, but never raise a hue and cry, for me to see
Lonesome solitude, besetting her when cold winters pee
Yet, she keeps and maintains a rare elegance, just for me

Happy New Year

Hello, time flocked to fly again, happy hello to you
Ambivalent expectations due to present conditions
Ponder the climate you brew
Pleasures like sand dunes in hourglass attritions
Yield yearnings from excavated hope

Nurture me with dreams, satisfy my needs
Embrace me in the landscape's scope: no resolutions here.
Welcome, new beginning, let me follow thy leads

Yesterday is gone, and joy nor pain returns
Each man must altar here his sacred trust
All humanity in our patchwork place discerns
Redemption from the fallen tear, a new design of lust.

Wet Caresses

Summer rain like windswept silk or
Kitten belly fur
Instilling feeling into leaves
Persuading cows to milk
Perhaps the drip from cabin eaves
Is edging to the flowered bed
Neath windowed view of Fall
Glowing in late Summer sun
A sparkling veil of dazzled drops
Lingering as they spill
O lowly summer raindrops they
Not driven only falling
Gleeful  feeling flowing to fill

Lost


Little by little befuddled
Overwhelmed; off track or muddled
Scatterbrained; astray and puzzled
Tapped out; tore up or bumfuzzled

Raindrops Fall

                      Raindrops fall from the sky
                      From day to day by and by
                      It pitter patters on a window
                      While almost like a spindle
                      It looks like teardrops
                      That haven't been forgot
                      Some are big drops
                      Some are small drops
                      Each in it's own way
                      When the days are gray
                      The raindrops fall day and day

Autumn for a Maple Tree

Mighty tree, it is that time of year.
All your leaves must fall down.
People know about your sap so sweet.
Love the way it tastes.  It’s great to eat.
Every year, autumn must come around.

This is another fall, but do not fear.
Rest you must until spring reappears.
End must come for your leaves that were green.
Either they are brown or red when on the ground.

Nature's Perfection

Nothing shall ever compare to the beauty so embellished
Amazing shapes, fragrances, colors, in combined detail.
Trace the fruits, vegetables, flowers, nectars relished.
Usually taken for granted, the grace and glory they entail.
Remember that all these things given for strength and life.
Evangelical perfection, from the mother, we know as Earth.
Securing ever-growing multiplication, revealing such rife,

Plentiful adornments, given from, way before our birth,
Examine a simple apple for it’s’ strength to withstand a fall.
Reach up, pluck a peach, and feel its softness surrounding,
Fresh juices so mouthwatering that make the young so tall.
Embark on a journey to find the treasure, which is astounding.
Cleverly, encased within ripening coconuts, of their shell,
Tantalizing richness in liquid and meat for a taste supreme,
Infinite delights, enticing, each broaden our sense of smell,
Only to further, invite our taste buds to enlighten the dream.
Nature’s perfection is the whirlwind of Mother Nature’s scheme.
