Mustard Yellow – A Poem

Painted facades in racing stripes once a summer rouge, Now travelers and landscape sport a mustard yellow hue. Street lines etch golden filigree in the diamond asphalt. Dividing traffic’s to and fro with its citrine watermark. Triathlon charioteers sporting yellow swoosh joggers Jockey uphill, corn-yellow bikes in herculean fervor. Spectator trees hold aloft their wingedContinue reading “Mustard Yellow – A Poem”

Hovering leaflets – A Poem

Autumn, the earth’s introspection Honoring the terrestrial womb of inception Summer skyward points light unsheathe; Fall plummets, covering what lies beneath Precious few notes capture fall’s sheaves Like the sound of treading on dried leaves Dispensed by Summer’s exit strategy, as she Tosses leaf invitations like betrothal confetti. The hovering leaflets – earring danglers, NimbleContinue reading “Hovering leaflets – A Poem”

Cream puffs – A Poem

Ruminating dulcet dreams of cream puffs, choux Pillow dainties of pastry prophets top the menu. Swirling concoctions ebbing at their soft center, Like summer waves caress sand on the seashore. Into their hallowed labyrinth center patissiers Pipe, angelic fillings dreamy unbridled mysteries Topping their just desserts in liberty’s ganache, Dissolving sticky situations with edible panache.Continue reading “Cream puffs – A Poem”

Font awaken – A Poem

Cornucopia tomes and poems in helvetica saffron, Shed petals as imagination’s paged fonts awaken. Arial kernels like nutcrackers in conifer groves Scale idea mangroves binding stories into folios. Once tossed drafts; flotsam and jetsam genuflect To unrelenting waves in Calliope’s handheld tablet; Its keys, winged foliage exposing trunks of truth – Allowing amber sap ofContinue reading “Font awaken – A Poem”

Somewhere in September- A Poem

Somewhere in the heart of September; it is Spring. Fall leaves planted dignitaries, invisible emissaries Of Spring’s march across earth’s axised hemisphere, Where patchwork color roses bloom gardens there. While we unfold gifted quilts of heirloom treasure, Spring slips forget-me-nots to remind September – Even before winter arrives in a distant hemisphere – That, somewhereContinue reading “Somewhere in September- A Poem”

Auto Correct – A Poem

My dear darling auto correct; Thy selfless typing materialize Words of puzzlement and tease. I type hello you answer “yellow.” I type jello, you answer, “hello.” I type rainbow you answer “boo.” Is my typing too spooky for you, Or, am I your one and only boo. Proving my devotion I type love, You immediatelyContinue reading “Auto Correct – A Poem”

Streetcar Trolley – A Poem

Streetcars sing in heavy metaled lyrics, “next stop” Trolley, trams belch, tooting their metal giddy-up, Rolling Boston to San Francisco; Philly to Toronto Nowadays, some tracks still on strident hooves go; Six hundred volt horses on top, the carriage below. Inside; standing riders clasp iron floor branches or, Poised like Purple Gallinules birds walking on water, SwayContinue reading “Streetcar Trolley – A Poem”

Love’s Butter – A Poem

Ah! Breakfast – homemade bread, butter melting, Steamy oven door – a fly peeks in napkin wearing Attracted by the pheromones of this warm suitor, Giddy and dizzy from flour’s undulating aroma, Steadying itself as it swoons on a pad of butter. Mounted expedition to save it from the butter, Allowed the fly to flutterContinue reading “Love’s Butter – A Poem”

The Ladder – A Poem

Uplifting branches, splintering, never straight; life’s ladder Spindled from trees near the descendants of Jacob’s ladder. Simple to assemble, complex in usage; tiered Occam’s razor. Wooden railing, nursery bumpers in the cradle of humanity, Ever faithful to silent majesty keeping secrets for posterity. Generations thrive in salvation’s houses on its ringed tiers, Laying wooden mattressContinue reading “The Ladder – A Poem”

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”
