Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Tuesday Challenge #54: Ghost & Haunt (Cinquain)

 

Shimmers

Astral spirit

Twinkling, waiting, haunting

Hesitant to reveal secrets

Shivers

*( I used the synonym “astral spirit” for ghost.)

Quadrille # 42: Hope

 

Whispering Prayer

 

Hope catches in fragile throat

Filling vital spaces with evolving light

     Thoughts turning away from brooding darkness

Surrendering to possibilities of light

 

Rejoicing in autumn’s electrifying spirit

Hoping to spark renewal, beyond mere existence

 A hopeful feather drops from heaven

Whispering a soft prayer

Suzanne’s On The Road: Inner Happiness/True Contentment

 

Stillness of moment

Gentle clouds of contentment

Nature’s offering

Reflection of inner peace

Senses calm, love speaks softly

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #53: Mist &Shape

Was I overwhelmed by your powerful voice and chilled by your misty presence, even then?  Was I scared standing up there all alone, gripping the railing, acquiescing to a photo opportunity for my mother? Did you leave a formative impact on my impressionable senses, so I would remember to return one day when I was older and less fragile? Did I wave good-bye as a child is inclined to?

 

Buried memories

Misty remnant from the past

Shaping life’s journey

 

(Return to Niagara Falls– two years ago–)

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Lines and Angles

I was intrigued by this abandoned home in Killarney, Ontario, Canada.

“Nature creates curved lines while humans create straight lines.”  Hideki Yukawa

 

Interesting fissures on this rock formation.
