A Pondering Poet




~God Bless Each~

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

    Rick, I think contests are filling slowly because there are so many of them. You have a great concept for your contest and I hope you get the remaining entries you need for it to fill. Love always, Carolyn PS -- My "word of the day" is "natter." I read a poem by a friend and had to look it up. It means the same as "chatter."

    Rick, I'll take YOUR word since it was one of those kinds of words that I would know it when I see it in a sentence but by itself, it didn't have much meaning for me. Good blog! and now I will make like a ghost and make myself incorporeal.
