How Poetry Began
That thing that we call poetry -
when asked where it began,
I’d say it started beautifully
before the dawn of man!
It glistened on the oceans
before man came...
It's how the stars are lit at night
and how the dew drops glisten
I am Poetry

A s bright robes fall to the ground, her passion paints the twilight skies.

Words - The Heart of Imagination
This seasoned evening
sported a full faced
Orange Kool-Aid moon.
Fully aware it was a marvel
it shot me an arrogant wink.
Not once but twice.
I think i heard it laugh.
nature, sad, sun, time,

you stifle Summer’s ardor. . . and...

NATURE’S WONDERFUL GARDEN
Nature’s wonderful garden in display
display of autumn colours in array
array of beauty to share in delight
delight of birds in a picturesque sight.
nature, caregiving, childhood, devotion, inspirational,
The powdery snow gloves the fingers
of maple forest, protecting barren bark
with the expectation of rose tipped bloom.
A meeting point between pristine
innocence and the...
Soul Searching Trek Along Winter's Snow Painted Trails
appreciation, beauty, introspection, nature,
Waking to cold blown tent, ground frozen icy hard

Today starts my anticipated forest trek,
seeking salvation from...

Palm trees are swaying island style
Within the gentle trade wind's flow,
As Egrets glide on salty air—
Then land where verdant grasses grow.
Breathe in sweet scents of...
Love of Nature
Whether ocean or mountain with valley green
or every deep forest in between
My love for Nature fills my eyes
With every creature of Earth and sky
The last goodbye
goodbye, imagery, love, nature,
Inviting vibrancy as the season changed
Smiley faces bloomed, reopening dreams.
Seeing you there marked a blessed event
Akin to magical when first time eyes met.
A fragile winter butterfly
Flutters from the sky
So soft and yet her heart
Is cold and made of ice
But if I warm it
She will melt and die
The Glory Of The Eastern Edge
nature, appreciation, beauty, imagery, morning,
In moments of twilight civility
an exchange of gifts -
darkness for light..
from beyond the softening silhouetted edge
you brighten like a blushing damsel
taking unabashed pleasure...
The Guise Of The Blue Jay Skies
nature, autumn, bird, blue, conflict,
F l y i n g
a sailing tailwind
in cerulean streams
through beams colored creamsicle -
are wings reflective of turquoise truth
Autumn brushes her hair slowly
Letting the glorious colors
flow gently to the earth below.
Showing off vibrant colors
in contrast to summer's green dress.
One Green Leaf
nature, color, green, holiday, imagery,
One leaf fell from a tall, tall tree
and subtly kissed gnarled roots beneath;
a lover’s kiss below sunned-sheath
of greenest leaves, a jubilee.
nature, angst, culture, native american,
I see the wrinkles in your suntanned brow,
You carried burdens then; you see them now.
You’ve heard the cries your people who in pain,
Have shed their...
View It From Afar
nature, beautiful, earth, imagery, imagination,
To appreciate our planet

where sunbeams morph crystals of ice
into gems of glistening light.
Witness white clouds traverse the skies

the dawning of spring

SONNET – SCARRED LAND
The trees were leafless, burnt, the branches charred,
the ground covered by blackened forms; ashen.
The golden soil turned gray, the earth scarred,
The Rose Bowl
The sky is one gigantic bowl of pink
turned upside down,
spilling soft rosy petals that peeked out
from beneath snow white billowed clouds
till - fully blossomed -...
