As sweet as
love and gentle
Poems, poets, poetry, writing, poetry challenges
God bless the poet and the poetess.
Even though their hearts do strain.
Even as they embrace a-others pain.
Can a photo be so ugly
as to capture the blood
and tears of man…?
Photographer’s scout for open spaces.
U-hampered places, to capture the breadth,
the essence of where they’ve been…
Summer’s sunflower’s provide feed for Chickadee’s;
My eye in the lens
I capture to see
all of the beauty
here around me
Moments set in the aspic of a photo
Smiles captured in chemical emulsions
Or the many pixels of light sensitive electronics
Laughter lost in time and space
Diligence in Temporal Light,
Sound and Silence, Intrinsic Delight;
Tower of Night,
Dark river of Dreams,
Thundering Melody of Timeless Symphony.
Real flowers –
Poetry challenge: Acrostic Poem
Whispering into my ear,
Of passionate words to hear.
Needing me in your life,
Day after day, night after night.
Poetry challenge: Acrositc poem.
Repeated deepening of open wounds,
Echoing the sorrow within.
Anguish, heart sinking.
Yearlong drought, harsh dry air.
Grass turned golden brown, flowers shrunk.
Throat burning, nostrils bleeding.
Let the grass be golden brown,
Color my world
With all the joy they bring.
Heated and rises.
Key West Waterfront,
Moisty air, foggy Eve.
Lamp posts, soft lights,
Numerous species of trees,
Swirled, crooked, or straight.
Which specie is enculturated or astray?
Lovely as the petals from flowering seed.
Pure tones of beige mix with red’s…
a shaker spray of pepper descends.
amber, leaves of
red swaying in the
wind as though
Owe no one anything except to love them;
for love is the key to happiness and peace.
Seedling’s grow as sprouts in the wind…
pushing through the ground and then…
