Early Morning

  • Wake up. Wander.
  • Take your time.
  • Stop.
  • Ponder.
  • Saunter down the road a while.
  • Pause. Wait.
  • Then, navigate a new direction.
  • Never hesitate.
  • Marvel over
  • each
  • and
  • every
  • miraculous
  • moment.

Poetry Friday

It’s Poetry Friday!

A line from this poem cropped up in my memory this week.  Something about the rhythm, not the words, came back.

Poetry has a way of doing that, doesn’t it?  The memory of the sound of it can linger in some far dark corner of our minds.

So I went searching to find which of the poems I’d written once upon a time had that piece of a line/sound I was remembering.  It took a while, but I found it.

Amaryllis

Yesterday:

coral candy-striped

bright-white

blooms.

Tonight:

folded wrinkles

tired

brown

skin

wet-paper

thin

as Monarch wings.



Amaryllis,

you wither today

while I,

not yet

ready

to see you

die

learn to say

good

bye.

    Yes! You captured the amaryllis life. Paper thin as monarch wings. What a nice image.
