Popping Corn – A Poem

Memories hop around the kettle of the mind like popping corn with the soul as the lid. The balm of quietude fuels the kernels rising swiftly from where they were hid. Popping aromatherapy scents the room with relaxing reminders; home is sanctuary’s solace. Movie night on the sofa of the soul ruminating on the crunchyContinue reading “Popping Corn – A Poem”

Like Damselflies in Summer – A Poem

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

A stroll in the woods – 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”
