Circadian Rhythm – A Poem

Don’t you just love it when: Just for a moment, you can’t tell what day of the week it is, When you have to fumble around in the dark for the phone, Or scamper with one slipper to the window seeking a “sign,” Those rhythms once apparently chiseled, ready and honed, Where has that comfort-abilityContinue reading “Circadian Rhythm – A Poem”

Words Of Encouragement – A Poem

Dear fellow blogger friends, Believing that by your craft you might inspire others on their own pilgrimages, You sojourned in near and in far off lands, walking, hiking seeking images. You write so that others with similar dreams might find quicker paths, Your encounters speak well of you based on the testimony of your posts.Continue reading “Words Of Encouragement – A Poem”

Laundry Day – A Poem

What a love song to the hands is laundry day to garments, Gathering its fledgling fibers for spun liquid containment; Like a goose with her goslings preening in the catchment. Soaking silken robes in the washing cycle ever so delicate, Cajoling tenderly to render clean by releasing particulate. How smooth linen when under dryer heatContinue reading “Laundry Day – A Poem”

Gifted Shelter – A Poem

Terra firma; Atlas’s burden, toil and cosmic presence, Orbiting bodies steady his uplifting arm’s advance. Humanity’s home on mortality’s illuminated perch. Dry clay footrest of creation’s live spectator bench, Provides angles from which upon Zion, eyelids gaze Admiring shooting stars and falling comets ablaze. Warmed blue ocean sister to bright brother Solar, Born of theContinue reading “Gifted Shelter – A Poem”

Early Morning Rhythm – A Poem

Sunrise sequesters silence at the cusp morning hour, Quiet rises in the halcyon air like fog across the moor. Meditative morning strolls drench soles in dewdrops, Sprinkling contemplation’s lobes where ideas synapse. Cardinal songbirds serenade in their red plumed vest, Spinning pensive toned albums from their nearby nest. Stirring at the day’s first winks, itsContinue reading “Early Morning Rhythm – A Poem”

Tools Of The Craft – A Poem

Expressions carefully coined phrases, gifted tools of the craft. Writers, poets, artists pour, from the jars of their earthen gift Water and oil onto the waiting hemispheres of the imagination. Courageously dipping the inscribed edges of their mortal pen – Its immortal tip dripping with the anointing oil flowing down, From the cloaks of theContinue reading “Tools Of The Craft – A Poem”

Sapphire Lagoon – 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”

Dancing Home – A Caribbean Style Poem

Ocean grey skies clouded noon day, Typical tropical rains on their way. Bus a lime by the corner with you, (bus a lime – to hang out with friends) Here comes the downpour doo doo. (doo doo or doux doux – my dear, darling) Pelting rain trow mango with a splash, (trow – throw, toss)Continue reading “Dancing Home – A Caribbean Style Poem”

Legacy’s Cart – A Poem

Enraptured by sandy shores in memories’ swirling rampart, Of places alive in warm pastels of the mind’s daydream art, Alive today because ancestral prayers of faith did their part. Harnessing the bridled past into iron wheels of horsepower, Driving memory’s adventures to places remembered forever. Journeying beyond those familiar lands adding to their start, SoContinue reading “Legacy’s Cart – A Poem”
