Pixie flowers, lilliputian floral wonder, big on scenery: Glomerata, the bellflower of the ball in purple livery, Meadowbright, picturesque pinks, echinacea’s sister, Saxifraga, raising a cup to the groundcover whisperer. All floral titans undercover, reviving their grandeur, Over woodlands, and gardens in spring and summer. Surely they delight to lend their once grand moniker To,Continue reading “Pixie Flowers – A Poem”

Soles shift in labored toil portraying diligent effort, Keyboard penmanship typed in mouse discomfort. All-nighters snuffer both ends of the burn candle, Wringing inner ear repeat the woodpecker’s anvil. Unrequited culinary affectations, quick bake flour Into one-sided sandwiches for brunch and dinner. Thirst’s parched whistle, the kettle’s dainty saucer, Harmony’s momentary breather, serenity’s sister. OasisContinue reading “Sapphire Lagoon – A Poem”
Everything, you Have endured, Have sacrificed, To live in this moment; Was Not For Nothing.
Wouldn’t it be nice to visit the garden art gallery, Plum for fine fruit, captured by Monet and Dali. Admire smiling rose bushes, the Mona Lisa of hedges, Train climbing cucumbers, The Thinker of veggies. Paint peaches like Monet, pears like van Gough, And, sculpt strawberry fences into Venus Di Milo. This familiar oasis sketchedContinue reading “The art gallery – A Poem”
In the far under kingdom of Peat, Annelida of the turf advance unit, Wormed her way in the grottoes, To fend off the army of Antophicloes, Threatening to devour the tomatoes. She dons her invertebrate armor, Sheaths her sword named tuber. And, rallies her Eastern troops into rows, Under the ripen vines of tomatoes. WithContinue reading “The under kingdom – A Poem”
Created in earthly labor, Raised in stages of rest. We blink and the eyes rest. We breathe and the lungs rest. We speak as the ears listen. Spring abounds as winter expires. Summer simmers as Spring rests. Fall exhales, other seasons inhale. Nature’s coming in and going out, A looking glass into the engine ofContinue reading “Engine of ourselves – A Poem”
A stroll in the woods, stumbles into a clearing of trees, Warmth, serenades yellow blooms in the breeze. Hummingbirds helicopter to the golden bistros, Ordering candied nectar as fast as they please. Bees competing for the same sumptuous cup, Wax eloquent chorus floating to a buttercup. Thorns of the day trumpeting the heart, Vanish unexpectedlyContinue reading “A stroll in the woods – A poem”
When with gale waves, dreams abandon, When courage like flotsam dims the horizon. Steer by heavenly stars at night, Beyond confusion’s twilight, Anchor into the deep within, And from there, unearth Cruise-ships of confidence, Waiting to be birthed.
