Sapling – A Poem

Earth’s globe, blossomed sapling in the tree of life, Upholding humanity’s offspring in noble archetype. Its Elysian fountain bark; the destroyer of sorrows, Supports keepsake trellises where empathy grows; Staking sanctuaries in solitude’s stemmed embrace, Every twig, a sturdy foothold in the immortal race. Its vines bridging both sides of the heavenly river, With rootsContinue reading “Sapling – A Poem”

Pest Control Day – A Poem

August, the annual spray recital; decks have been cleared Uninvited characters wait in the wings, unseen unheard.

Like Damselflies in Summer – A Poem

Like damselflies in summer, beautiful azure, you, Add green, blue tinctures to color spectrum’s hue.

Hummingbirds, kingfishers rest from azure flight, Nesting in Gaia’s lapis lazuli sanctuaries of azurite.

Manna from the skies – A Poem

What if green beans were pistachio ice-cream in disguise. Parsnips were poutine – that saucy staple with french fries. Cauliflower was super-sized cotton candy on the 4th of July.

Perhaps children world-wide might applaud such a surprise,Continue reading “Manna from the skies – A Poem”

Bell Peppers – A Poem in a story

The deluge stuck heavy to his back like Atlas shouldering the sky. Whatever Herculean efforts required, he had to make it to the top of the hill today. His recurring dream was unrelenting. The rumors of her century of expertise was comforting. He knew she would be waiting. With his rain-drenched clothing clinging like milkContinue reading “Bell Peppers – A Poem in a story”
