Shadows…a poem

white bed linen near brown wooden drawer

there’s a place
where shadows live
they don’t just go away
because we aren’t there
they exist without us
stretching
walking
playing
until they are called back to us
by the light
but they never sleep
and they are never gone
sometimes
they’re just somewhere else

Outside…a poem.

a basket full of flowers sitting in the grass

the flowers liked being back outside
it made them happy
to feel the sun on their petals
the breeze pushing against their leaves
they heard the grass rustle next to them
and sighed
under the partly cloudy sky
they could once again
breathe

The night forest…

Winter, Night, Scene, Background, Space

in the cold
winter forest
under a crescent moon
where all is calm
and silent
but for
the flutter of wings
live
deep below the ground
a number of beings
gently sleeping
among roots and worms
waiting to awaken
at the first sign
of spring

The garden…a poem

Free Flower Ladybug photo and picture

it was just another day
in the garden
the sun was out
the flowers
were chatting
merrily
when suddenly
an unexpected guest arrived
and  everything
changed

Winter…a poem

a snow covered tree in the middle of a field

winter is heavy
it weighs on one
bending
crushing
and breaking
it’s power is
in it’s ability
to freeze
and to pile one snowflake
on top of another
until
branches
snap
and people
buried deep
inside their coats
head for warmth
while winter snickers
and watches them run

Winter…a poem

Snow, Cold, Landscape, Winter

Christmas is over
a new year is ready
to begin
a soft
gentle
snow is falling
and if you listens
carefully
you can hear the
heartbeat
of winter
through the stillness

The wish…a poem

Woman, Face, Model, Beauty, Dream

she closed her eyes
and took a deep breath
she wasn’t one to waste a wish
she took them far too seriously
she put the words together
in her mind
sorting them
rearranging them
until they were perfect
it was a longish wish
but she couldn’t pare it down
any farther
let everyone see the beauty
around them

and end the violence
and destruction
holding only joy
and love
in their hearts
building a new world
built on
kindness
finished
she smiled
and got on with her day

Queen in neon…a poem

if this is the real life
it’s often a nightmare
if this is just fantasy
it’s a twisted
and dark one
I think Galileo
would agree

Bakers…start your ovens…a poem

dough on white surfacedough rolled out
or dropped from spoons
cookie sheets loaded
and everyone
waiting
for hot
Christmas Cookies
right out of the oven
chocolate chips
peanut butter
SNOWBALLS
birds nests
ginger snaps
and all the rest
filling the room
with the perfume
of holiday baking
while  Frosty the Snowman
plays loudly
in the background

Beauty…a poem

Christmas tree covered with snow

beauty
is in the eye
of the beholder
we know this to be
true
the above photo
is beautiful
to me
magical
leaning toward
other worldly
as if one
could simply
walk into another
dimension
without even
realizing it
