A Pondering Poet




~God Bless Each~


redleafonrockinsteam250x250.jpg image by Featured_Page



At early dawn

I came to be...

with pen in hand

and a loving dream...




Echoing Resolve


Easy river run
down vast beauty light
in morning dawn
crest before my eyes

For autumn rain has gone
sparking light of silver grace
now lay peaceful strokes
on hillside of new day

Each thought still remain
in splashed hues of poetic verse
a quenching bath of love
upon soft sky of birth





One Tree In A Distant Field - Results Are In........

Great Imagery My Fellow Poets


I Really Enjoyed All The Great Visions


Although I Lost A Few(Of My Fav's) Due To Syllable Count/And I Felt A Few Had To Much Movement..

 I Had A Great List(SMILES)

.....And All The Other Beauties...............Loved Each Poem!!!

KIMO  form is acceptable.

This form of poetry was invented in Israel.
Kimo is a post-Haiku Poetic form,
consisting of three lines  of  10, 7, and 6 syllables.
Kimo has evolved from the need of more
than 5,  7, and 5 syllables as in a Haiku or Senryu.
It  usually describes one frozen scene that has no  movement in it.
