one leaf dangled

one leaf dangled from
a single spider-web strand
in fresh morning air

as I greeted the sun,
sitting under a tree in
my dew-filled backyard

I was stilled by the
beauty of this lone leaf, in
its simplicity

But, then the leaf fell
I was startled, but the joy
in my heart  remained

THE DAWN

Surprise  lollipop
To a child’s day, splashing
A  world of  colour.

The flying saucer
With folded hands before  its
Searing,  final  blaze.

Sedation one likes to sleep
Blissfully  away.

A touch of class to
Any pedestrian stuff,
A book  or a song.

A flirt, a smile, a wag
Cat food breath again

Walking together
Connected to mother Earth
Time to pick up poop

Dance, dance, dance
See the leash! BE the leash!
Curse you, it's raining.

Seat belt means one thing
The sounds! The sights! The breeze!
Someone farted.

Watching Terns

From boat's mass thrown up
Wings fondling light and wonder
The fish shudders awe

I caught in splendour
Net my eyes in white of wings
And sea frightened thawed

So water rippled
The sea in sunshine trembling
Against departure

They turned, flashed in dive
The sun made coronet bright
On feathers waving

True there was a cry
In self praise for pain un-groaned
Just for Leda's sake.

Senryu Suite

somewhere deep inside
where hope once flourished then died –
an old woman cries

hope awakens new
focusing through new born eyes –
an old woman cries

so fragile this hope
with swelling of love within –
the sleeping child stirs

a new dawn breaking
hope rests in evergreen eyes –
an old woman cries

emily-CREATIONS

imagery within me avail-

emily:is a 2(or sometimes 3) line paradox form(i labelled it thus,inspired by Emily Dickinson 
poem 1732).It may or may not have a title,uses a word with separate meanings,(or one that 
sounds the same,with a different spelling) with the intention to mean several things,therb to 
enhance the thought's ambiguity/enigma.
ED 1732 begins:   My life closed twice-
                                                               before it's close
