Life

here’s to the days
when you looked a person in the eyes,
unblinking till they revealed themselves

when your nose was yours to pick
without shame or explanation

when you wore the cutest dress
with a diaper underneath without  consternation
here’s to those days!

Thursday Door – Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn

I was driving through Bedford Stuyvesant this evening. I forgot how many gorgeous doors there are in the neighborhood. These brownstones were built for the growing middle class at the time from 1890s to the late 1910s. Very ornate surrounds.

Love & Harmony

at the ocean’s edge..
eavesdropping on harmony
of wind and waves – I’m
tucked into their rhythm, that
hypnotic sway sounds like love

Revision:-

at the ocean’s edge
wind and waves move in concert –
as we greet the day
I’m tucked in their rhythm, that
hypnotic sway, such passion

For Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge over at Colleen’s using synonyms for Love & Harmony
I used “Passion & In Concert” for more responses check here

For some reason I forgot about the ‘synonyms’ part of the challenge.
So I rewrote it and decided to post them both.
