My Poetry Friends

I carry our friendship in my mind
And like a “Welcome Home” banner
It warms my heart. 
When I see flowers in bloom
I think of your poetry;
How your words paint such colorful, 
Vivid tapestries.
Even on the greyest of days
They brighten my world,
Shed light on my emotions,
Lift my spirits, and give comfort to my soul.
We are kindred spirits in our love of nature,
The gift of children and the wonder of the
Animal kingdom, how it nurtures us in love,
Inspires us to want to share through
Poetry the beauty of this planet.
When you write of waterfalls
I feel the cool mist on my face.
When you write of trees
I see their lovely trunks and limbs
And how closely they resemble people.
When you write about the wayward wind
An awesome chill cloaks my body.
As you relate the power of the moon
I feel her tug at my emotions and
Her authority as she reigns over the seas.
The contrast of serenity and excitement
Abound when you speak of the sparkling 
Stars, their soft glow or burst of beauty as they 
Burn a bright light through a cobalt sky.
Tears of joy stream down my smiling face
As you describe the sunrise and sunset
In a rainbow of hues from silver to scarlet.
It leaves me breathless in awed elation.
Each season offers a new delight in what you write
And our friendship grows deeper and more
Meaningful with each creation.
When you write of love, I feel loved.
You are a blessing and a joy in my life.
I carry our friendship in my mind.

The Heavens Are Open

Heavens are open to view in the late night sky.

Celestial bodies spinning in orbit, moving

Light years away, exploding out of our sight,

Some on the same primordial path our

World once took; inviting travelers who

Roam the infinite universe, because they can!

How shallow minded to think we are alone, 

To scoff at proof and stubbornly cling 

To antiquated concepts of the past.

Visitors walk among us, though we 

Are not aware of what we share. . .

They know the id is filled with fear and 

Programmed to annihilate that which 

We do not understand.

The times of enlightenment are at hand. . .

A special gift for those willing to let go of 

Their egos and open their minds and hearts 

To embrace the destined future.

I Walk on Water

I walk on water. . . 
I feel the coolness of the
Rolling waves splash
Beneath my feet.
I watch the sun sprinkle
Diamonds across the sea.
I float above the clouds
And feel the radiant warmth
Of the sun bless my body.

I feel the power of the wind
Caress or twist and break
Anything into submission.
I rise above the towering Alps—
Snow capped and pristine.
I enjoy a fragile flower sharing
The faint scent of heaven.
I know the Sequoias, ever growing.
I blend with verdant pastures and
Serene rolling hills in misty rain.

I know the secrets of the
Deep dark abyss.
I sense the moon’s tenderness 
And share in her emotions.
I flow with the clever rivers
Seeking new exciting paths.
I form a rainbow in waterfalls.
I am free to be the wind, the earth, 
The sea, when all you see is me.

Poet

Poet—Your words,
Like garments of
Gold and silver thread,
Shimmering in sunlight
Or bathed by moonlit glow,
When shed—
Leave me breathless,
Caught up in their naked truth
And timeless flow—
And I become aware
Of nothing else.

Ode to Autumn

Earth’s sphere of fire bids adieu to me

As dying embers gleam across the sea

In rare hues reflected by autumn trees,

Swirling in motion with October’s breeze.



I feel the joy this season has to share

In golden harvest that the branches bear,

And I am thankful for this blessed year,

For divine abundance I share so dear.



The sun and moon take on a special glow

As thunder clouds move swiftly with the flow.

Yes, autumn coaxes feelings to revive,

Those mem’ries of past seasons still alive.



When autumn spreads her dress of lacey frost

I know, in breathless beauty, I’ll be lost.

Youth

Youth, ah that most beautiful butterfly. . .
evolving from chrysalis into the most
delicate creature, flitting freely to and fro,
alighting upon fragrant flowers that
capture their eyes with vibrant colors.
You don’t see them attracted to fading blooms.
Most proclaim it is impossible to return to 
youth—yet I see the youth of my mother 
in my daughter’s sweet smiling face.
If we are diligent, youth may become distilled 
in the mind, captured forever by memory and
faded photographs now photo/shopped into
their once brilliant shades of black and white!

Mississippi Moments

History journeys along with its meandering flow as
a wide birth from bank to bank has eyes straining
trying to see across to the other side, far too wide.
Muddy rivulets stirred up by the river boats drift by
and my dreams become intertwined with what
I have read and the sleepy house boats floating near 
the banks that the river dwellers call home.

A huge stainless steel arch with its catenary curve 
looms gracefully nearby as a gateway of welcome,
built as a monument to Thomas Jefferson and the
pioneers who braved making their way to St. Louis, 
why it is fondly called “the Gateway to the West.”
I felt as if the Arch was paying homage to the mighty
Mississippi with its tall shadow falling on her erratic waters.

Children were waving from the banks at contented tourists 
waving back as they drifted slowly by and time stood still 
with the music of the river taverns mingling with the 
contrasting sounds of riverboat whistles, and I drifted along 
with them sensing serene pleasure into another time and place.

Lyrical Lines

Words . . . written in brilliant lines

In passionate flamboyant rhymes

In Free verse, Haiku or Pantoum,

Etheree, Quatern, or 7/5 Trochee . . .

It matters not the particular form, 

But inherent quality, don’t you agree?

Long lines, short lines . . . no lines,

Sometimes a pregnant pause . . .

Unveils how less is more in lambent wit.

Lines that capture ones attention,

Honey mellowed, juicy jell-Oed or 

Painfully passionate . . . take your pick!

Lines with utter depth and nuance,

Lines we want to keep near bed.

Keep that blue blood flowing, sowing 

Seeds of thoughts through

Your frazzled, dazzled brain. 

Just one more poem ‘fore I retire . . .

One more line so I can sleep.

If You Are Lonely

If you are lonely watch the birds 
In their freedom of flight--
Feel the warmth of the sun 
Kiss your cheeks and smile
Visit the shore and listen to 
The waves sing sweet songs
Close your eyes and smell the 
Fragrant flowers of spring
Transport yourself through 
Time’s great abyss 
In memories of streams that 
Flow with a youthful glow. . .
Dive in pools of aqua waters 
Through your mind’s eye
Delight in the breezes playful 
Mood as the trees sway in tune
Listen to the purr of a 
Contented cat in your lap
Write a letter to yourself 
And promise to answer. . . 
Better yet write a poem, 
One that will linger long
In someone’s lonely mind.

Indian summer

Indian summer. . . 
a gathering of leaves dance 
quietly to death
