Now You've Left (Beyond Bereft)

For Jared Pickett's Trois Par Huit.....Tanka.....Rondel Contest:

It is fall
and now I’ve tasted gall -
prefaced by a final kiss from you.

The moon, huge ball above that shines a golden hue,
seems a sign auspicious - but oh, that is not true!
Trenchant words you spilled; my heart is cleft.

I’ve wept (beyond bereft)
now you’ve left.

Dear, can’t you recall
how we’d thought our love would grow?
Your touch would enthrall
me through long days; moon’s warm glow -
Where did summer’s solstice go?

How will I ever find the wherewithal
to hold on through each coming lonely night?
My heart is hollow now, but holds no light,
and autumn’s sky too soon will cast its pall.

Abounding love and sun are gone. How small
will be the days to come. How much less bright!
How will I ever find the wherewithal
to hold on through each coming lonely night?

In fragrant blush of June, to garden wall
I’d run, your sunflower smile in my sight.
How can I stop my mind from taking flight - 
so lost in thought of when we had it all;
how will I ever find the wherewithal?

COFFEE SHOP MADNESS

COFFEE SHOP MADNESS

i am feeling  blue
oh so lonely and depressed
like a long    sad song
then    as if by some magic
crimson flash    you’ll come along

sitting ‘cross the room
at this starbuck coffee shop
and looking so fine
how you’ll gaze my way and smile
a love arrow valentine

it’s love at first sight
my throbbing soul won’t deny
be still cautious heart
i will have you for my own
hear you say we’ll never part

on the bench

he sits on the bench

      eager pigeons surround him

a bag of breadcrumbs

       is the offering he brings

loneliness is forgotten

The Shine

The sun shines once more
In the midst of this downpour
Thought I was getting used to
Be forayed in this crusade
Till that warmth touches my soul

Trail Marker

Barn swallows returned,
from seasons I have not known
Eyes sting from hot winds  -
I have scanned the old dirt road,
searching for a summer lost
