~ Blurred Lines

by ladyliterati

~ Blurred Lines
Dreamy eyes scan the morning mist

Blurred lines; images of the Impressionist
A hint of peach pink peaks above mountains

Elongated blue hues of stratus clouds laze
As if a morning stretch was paramount
Playing in folds of curtains caught in breeze

~ Midnight Monologue 

by ladyliterati

Beneath the waxing moon –

Womb of Nights sky

I am infant, small

Watching over me?

A billion blazing stars –

Nights eyes scattered,

Crossing an infinite canvas
Alone in my madness

~ Morning Has Broken

by ladyliterati

I wait…jasmine tea in hand

A break in the sound of silence, begins

Dew drips from leaf to leaf

Puddles, falls to the forest floor

First bird note heralds dawn breaking

Yet darkness still prevails

Light on the cusp of being

The sound of creatures scurry

Snap of twig, pawing of tiny claws

~ Living Life Vicariously 

by ladyliterati

Laughter drifted through the window

Flower petal curtains seemed to join;

Sheer happiness, sheer elegance,

Caught on a late spring breeze
Yesteryear memories found their way in

Wafted about the room as did lilac scent

Splish splash, yes, bath-time!

Water pours out the spout.

My, watery, tub-boat fills up.

“Inside your boat is water?”

“Will it float?” “It may sink!”

“Oh, I just pretend.”

“I make-believe my tub is a tub-boat.”

~ Insomniacs 

Sometimes… Night is a silent, slow motion picture
Episodes scatter, out of place, out of time and sequence
Voiceless moving mouths, familiar faces freeze framed
As memories of a lifetime take center stage, reenact;

Illuminated;
A heart no longer confined
In darkness’ depth
But resurrected with a brilliance
To rival sun beams streaming;

~ Unfathomable ~ 

by ladyliterati

~ Unfathomable ~ 

The ceiling of my church is that heavenly vault
Framed by branches reaching high in praise
Hymns, the babbling brooks of water, rock and sands
Together uniting in melodies of worship
Prayers ascend through wafting breeze
Of bushes, branches, of leaves and trees
Here, uninhibited, beyond prying eyes my woes revealed

You’re not too shy.

Chatting is chatter-box fun.

tinged with dawns first light
