Quadrille #31: Still

Lifetime of Waiting

 

Stillborn dreams

Without magic of birth

Hibernating in time

Dispirited with standstill

 

Bound by life’s shackles

Yearning for more

Crack in the matrix

Freedom unleashed

 

Creative curiosity

Fueling stilled passion

Fermenting bubbles

Explode with delight

 

Intoxicating wondrous images

 Power beyond words

Lifting the soul

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge #146: Behold & Eye

 

Dying Beauty

 

Eye of camera

Beholds light in coming death

Black and white splendor

 

*(Discarded, dying tulips, yet camera’s eye discovers their beauty.)

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #30: Wish & Magic (Haibun)

     *( A wish emerging from darkness to light. Wishes don’t die, they just hibernate.)

Back Pocket

I ride the tides of change with a wish in my back pocket. A Hawaiian dream floating in the ethereal space of time. Years turn to decades until synchronicity flashes me a grin. I open my gift that’s been hibernating, almost forgotten. Soon I’ll be packing my bags and smiling with wonder.

 

 Wish in back pocket

Heralding future magic

Crystallized seed smiles

Quadrille #30: Drizzle

 

Waiting

 

Drizzle me a wayward dream

Dripping with golden starlight

Savoring blushing skies

 

Swing me a celestial doorway

Opening with periwinkle delight

Feathering spirit into flight

 

Light me a surging fire

Eternally glowing

Warming my weary heart

 

Bring me an angelic flower

Blossoming with light

 

*( Happy Easter from my angelic Easter Lily. )

Letting go of hardened past

Wrapped in some moment

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #28: Laugh & Cry

 

Dome of laughing birds

Crying to humanity

Life’s bubble fragile

Earth rumbling signs of dismay

Awakening universe
