I, Woman

I, woman, love life, so I celebrate every little joy whether spent with my friends, family, or just myself! I follow the Golden Rule, for kindness guides me; also I’ve learned that smiling is the universal language! Written 4/13/2015 For the I, Icon Contest of : Sheri Fresonke Harper

A Home With Two Cats

These are two etherees that will be put together side by side to form ONE complete poem having 11 syllables per line, so I thought i would show how it is done. It's like fitting two puzzle pieces together to form the poem for the contest at the bottom!

(Etheree #1)
cats now
a space that is
my home, their kingdom,
with beds to hide beneath,
and with closets, stairs and chairs
small pets like to explore and where
comfy, side by side, they doze.  Two cats,
now a part of me, show me daily. . .  love

(etheree #2)
Cute new friends, no longer foes, but sister
companions, share common spaces and
a place even more important:
the heart I give, along with
the place they frolic in,
with sofas they climb
and desktops where
they perch.  Here
my joy

(I have put the lines of the top etheree in parentheses so you can see how neatly they fit together with the reverse etheree #2)

A Home with Two Cats

(Two) cute new friends, no longer foes, but sister
(cats now) companions, share common spaces and 
(occupy) a place even more important:
(a space that is) the heart I give, along with
(my home, their kingdom), the place they frolic in,
(with beds to hide beneath), with sofas they climb
(and with closets, stairs and chairs) and desktops where
(small pets like to explore and where) they perch. Here 
(comfy, side by side, they doze.  Two cats,) my joy
(now a part of me, show me daily. . .  love) lives.

Hope I explained it so it was understood how I did it!!

Touch Me, Dream Weaver

Where are you?
Caress my hair,
drift through my mind's eye...
Let your fingers dig deep,
unearth the day's toils, plant seeds
that give birth to joyful tendrils
Use these, weave me rivered reveries...
Stay by my side 'til Sun kisses my cheeks

                                                 Blanket me in your kaleidoscope warmth
                                                     let silken threads of dreams tickle me,
                                                           so smiles meet my lips as I sleep
                                                                     Unravel my wrinkled mind,
                                                                 smoothen it, breathe new life
                                                                           with your magic touch
                                                                                    Let me feel you,
                                                                                     Dream Weaver

The Gracious

One little sunflower alone among many headless stems poses by my mailbox. Some summers ago, others flourished there, but were all mown down. If they can forgive their being slain, perhaps they will resurge and rejoin her. Today as I back my car out onto the street, I chance to glance over where that one new flower has remained, and I see, to my delight, that the lone sunflower has brilliantly turned into a small and gracious group of three! for the Encounters with Flowers Poetry contest

Connie Marcum Wong

Her poetry springs from inspiration. Her service merits admiration. She sees the hue of souls and hearts, speaks with hands, knows magic arts, loves the sea, rides the skies; Easily she cries! A lovely dame, and Connie is her name.

Response of A Harried Housewife To Her Spouse

“The children are always interrupting. You never have time for me,” her husband whined as he dropped his dirty clothes right there on the floor by the bed. Trying not to roll her eyes, she gave this quick response to her disgruntled spouse: “The kids, chores and mishaps have me spinning, and you tell me you feel rejected. To have a blissful home takes two. Consideration is key. I’m also missing you! To be successful in our bed, take time OUT of it. . . for ME!” A Double Etheree written May 27, 2012 for David Williams' The Three H's Poetry Contest

looking through
this tanka book
pages of weeping
from all over the world
smith and jones do not appear
smith and jones are so fortunate
to live their lives without life’s sorrows
or they are too blue-shirt common for words

Tantalizing Love

Tantalizing love, how long I’ve known you.
How often I’ve succumbed to you, but
how often I’ve resisted too -
while wanting you so badly.
I’ll never tire of you,
nor do I want to,
for you’ve been a 
part of my
have had
to learn to
control myself
when you are around.
I’m not the only one
who loves you more than I should.
You are so good when you are bad!
Oh, to breathe your scent and hold you to
my lips! Delicious food, I adore you.

In the Desert

I wandered restlessly in the desert as the sands of time blistered my weary feet. Then as the sun bled crimson and night’s coolness washed over me, I awoke! Again, that damn Sandman had snatched slumber’s deepest comfort from me. Written by 9/15/2014 by Andrea Dietrich for nette onclaud's "In the Desert" Poetry Contest

need for
red roses
Broken flowers
in a child’s small hand
They make me understand
that beauty is found within
the dirt and grass and broken stems
Who needs florists’ bouquets when this child
loved me enough to pick broken flowers

In the Empire of the Ice

(These are 2 etheree I put together to form a double etheree.
They were inspired by the marvelous
documentary movie "March of the Penguins.")

In the Empire of the Ice:
“The Plunge” & “When Childhood Ends”

They poke small heads out from underbellies;
feeling chill, retreat; and shivering,
remain a while longer where it’s
safe.  Nourished by both parents,
the chicks adapt.  One day
they’re left alone, but
Sea soon beckons 
them, and . . .  they
take the
years they
play, chase warm
waters’ flow and grow
with stomachs always full
before black heads emerge from
sea. . . Swollen bellies slide on ice.
Upright, they resolutely waddle
miles home. . . fierce winter storms not prevailing.

Cruelest Winds

Autumn leaves released against the cruelest winds
unmoored, without  a distant shore to land
have no instruction, nor direction, 
swept by the tides of winter seas
Surfing waves without an oar
curled tight against themselves
Fall winds spread them far,
until they sink
and crumble

I must
not stumble 
and must not curl
tight against myself
but be kin to nature...
soar the waves of winter seas
adrift in a sea of knowledge
following directions of my heart
unmoored, but with a distant shore to land
against the future of autumn's cruelest wind

The Awakening

pink passion of
trembling dew-damp bloom;
peach bliss of morning's kiss
coaxes a roseate flush;
warmed inner whorls teased to unfold,
the blushing bud swelling to pinken,
sun tonguing fragile folds, petals parting.

Tomorrow's Grace

When children are taught never to forget conflicts’ lessons, to love all humans, to honor those through history who, selfless, wrought liberty. . . Then will spangled dreams of world peace be fulfilled as God imparts tomorrow’s grace on all. Written on an Independence Day, maybe in 2004 when my husband was involved with a biker group, and it was so boring to me, i just sat by a tent and wrote this poem. For the Didactic poetry contest of Regina Riddle

Sun is rising, new day in Africa
Construction redefines horizon
Opportunity everywhere
Magnificent obsession
Professionals working
Business booming
People moving
Forgotten children
Without hope or future
Absolutely desperate 
Beautiful brokenness exists
Incredible emptiness abounds
Never enjoying the sunrise of love

*The contrast I see in Ethiopia, an emerging Nation 
completely focused on progress, while the orphan child 
sinks deeper into desperation from neglect.

Bound Together

am she
who seized the
storm and hushed the
Zephyr's rage to sleep;
the fierce within your soul,
the solace within your dreams.
I am your stained submissive lips
wanting, yet loathing; bare and alone,
oozing with lust filled memories; undone.
I am the bold stare when your eyes fear sight,
watching replays of your meant future,
whispering, I am no angel,
in your anxious, enthused ear.
I am your mind at night,
all you hold in sight,
your hearts lament,
deep inside;
I am

kiss me
your sweet rays
let your warm breath
touched upon my face 
bathe me with your radiance
and witness as a smile blooms
from my eyes that glow in surprise
to my full lips longing to be sealed
by an endearing and passionate kiss!

The Moon Smiles

The moon beguiles us to embrace again
And so you wrap your arms around me
I hear your whisper softly now
Loving words that caress me
You turn my face to yours
So your eyes can speak
Your lips move close
I tremble
Our lips
And again
More deeply now
You’re taking over
Chasing inhibitions
You whisper your devotion
As your mouth starts its journey down
Everything seems like a dream to me
The moon looks down with smile of contentment

HEAR THOSE BELLS (Etheree and Tanka combined)

HEAR THOSE BELLS (Etheree and Tanka combined)

those bells
wedding bells
one plus one    two
it is a magic time
when promises are made
a lifetime commitment     two
at the time so easy to do
but  there will surely be many trials
two souls in a give-and-take arrangement

many couples fail
fail to give each other space
space to know themselves
and those who weather the storms
owe thanks to god’s bright angel’s

She Craved

She Craved For the beast. Amidst his lair In candle surround, Ripped white linen clings As their sweated bodies writhe. In unification, his seed Shall spawn the beginning of the dark. Whilst his translucent shadows walk earths light. .

The Kite


Today, walking on the beach, lost in thought,	
I came across a father and son
At the end of the road, tied to			
A kite, pulling the heart strings,			
Soaring towards the sky,				
Climbing on fir trees,				
Over meadows,					
Full of love,					
Of future,					
Filled with pleasure,			
Impending nuptials,			
Reaching for the heavens,		
The plane that takes you away,	
Caught in turbulence, like our lives.
Destroyed, like the kite that hits the ground,
But the man fixes it and I….still hope.

The blood- so much of it upon the floor
of that small cell - was all that remained
of fury in a prison hell.
The guards could find no weapons,
for what they'd missed was this:
the slaughter had been
wrought simply by
