Green of early spring Brings freshness to the senses. Scents galore prevail When sunshine defeats darkness And God’s glory reigns supreme. For Andrea’s Tanka me a Colour contest, 11th May. 2013

Sole Coin

.







                 sole coin
                 near a fountain
                 waiting
                 for someone
                 to wish me

In Full Bloom

twenty yards distance
oh God, the sight, scent and sound
closer now, closer
let the droning, drowsy hum
of honey bees drift softly...

APRIL

APRIL

a long time coming
she is rosy cheeked and chill
breath quite treacherous
fickle april of my dreams
fondest promise unfulfilled

April and Mother Earth


April is thirty

and fierce as Niagara 

she wets our pallet 

for spring fling with nature

she shows us, we are one.

Rose Garden

rose garden
sun dial showing 3 pm
time for the class 
in classical mythology 
or lying in shade holding you

short verse sort of tanka

Short verse 
Brother wind, sister rain,
Father thunder and mother sunlight
Meet every April
And a family feud breaks out.

That Smile

To blossom outward
Is to find a place inside
To become your own
Release your anger and pride
Welcome the new you and smile

Unrequited Loves

mental railing
against my past unrequited 
madness
only faintly remembered
and left frozen in time

April showers bring May flurries??

The middle of May
and flurries! What's this I see?
Dandelion globes:
fine, feathery parachutes
distributed by the wind.

April III


Diverge collied now
I Question oh why horror 
See what I see here

Is unaccompanied and
I feel I will not be good.

Strange Me

Silence turned clamor,
blathering became brilliance,
demure gone shameless.
A ride back on April's night,
my emotions flux so high.
