The fifth day – A Poem

Perhaps the fifth day Isn’t just another weekday – The cathedral to week’s end But, A whisper of all that came to life in Eden.

And, it was the dayContinue reading “The fifth day – A Poem”

Forgotten dreams surface – plans to aspire. Their details dance in memory’s flame, Like sparks from the ashes of a campfire.

Spanish Lavender – A Poem

Trip to the grocery store Paused in mid stride, to admire Fragrant pots of Spanish lavender. Clearly a captivating crowd-pleaser, As the lineup also came to an abrupt halt, While shoppers consider the plant. Meanwhile, to the dismay of the orderly crowd, Someone spontaneously, Read the growing instructions out loud. Space the plants apart inContinue reading “Spanish Lavender – A Poem”
