tulips in spring breeze
bowing their heads in worship –
the goddess, nature

Tanka -Intriguing Times

strange ferocity,
delighting in turbulence
shadowy figures
slips in and out of the cold
life in most intriguing times

Nothing Being Equal

spring takes her chances
through the clutches of winter…
nothing being equal

Bounce -A Quadrille

Photo of my creek

waters of the creek
runs with abandon
living life at will
bouncing, gurgling
shifting shape
swirling, whirling
spitting bubbles
cavorting over rocks
hugging the shore
wrapping around boulders
tumbling mini precipice
in noisy splashy rush
roaring in its bounce
living life out loud

Lyrical Tumble- A Cherita

20171103_175805-787732004.jpg

leaf gazing –

the lyrical tumble
of falling leaves

even through wicked winds –
a gentle landing still…
a life well lived

Over at dVerse Poets Pub the focus is on the ‘silence’ in poetry by way of punctuations. What if the visible ‘pauses’ in a poem is where the poet lets the reader in. A bread crumb, so to speak, on the trail of a deeper meaning. But, maybe not. Once a poem is made public, it takes on new life. Much like coming to the realization that your kids are grown and you have to let them go. Different strokes…
An interesting topic over at dVerse.
