Winter Lingers

snowfall
blanketing earth
spring gardens, sleeping deep
awaiting the songs of new life
rebirth
~
winter
deer medicine
pathway to nourishment
mourning doves cooing on bare limbs
peaceful
~
passion
hibernating
slumbering faraway
thrashing in the throes of a dream
springtime

She Built a Nest, To Give Her a Place of Rest

artwork by Catrin Welz-Stein





















She built a nest within her head
in hopes to hatch new dreams
creating a kingdom, a fortress
keeping her safe, until her knight
finds  his way to her....

She built a nest within her head
in the palm of her hand a songbird
under dazzling starlight, songs
echo through whispering trees
sonnets of love filling misty air

She built a nest within her head
dancing under golden moonlight
on feather light feet, embracing
distant melodies, poetic verses
spilling from her heart

She built a nest within her head
dreaming of romantic courtship
in a garden of roses, a troubadour
gently strums a seductive tapestry
of sound...

She built a nest within her head
woven with love twig by twig
held together with earthly soil
an intricate design to weather
the storms of her mind...

She built a nest within her head
in hopes to hatch new dreams
creating a kingdom, a fortress
a place for her to rest
a place for her to believe

Murmuring Skies




sunrise - wikimedia















In an early morning dew
tired,  she awoke feeling blue
in silence, she murmured, "why"
in an airbrushed sky, a gentle reply
take in the view, open your eyes
over the horizon, your dragon flies
in brilliant hues, her heart sighed
"thank-you",  she replied

Quadrille #50 for dVerse
We are writing a 44 word poem
incorporating the word murmur

Awash in Dreams

Lost Boat - Pinterest


opening the canvas of her mind
leaving old memories behind
riding tides of love, tis her choice
listening for the tones of his voice

dreams sail beyond the horizon
whispering into the vast silence
heart awash, floating in new hope
seeing beyond the human scope

lulled by the gulls, oceanic tune
singing under a clementine moon
she reaches for a pearly dream
awakening in heavens gleam

Feeling Insecure, How About You!



I'm a bit insecure, yes it's true
I try to deny it , I try to hide it
but,  dreams I still have a few
seeking a place for words to fit

sometimes, I write a song
hoping you will catch the beat
hoping you  will sing along
before the moments obsolete

perhaps, we're all insecure
pitching our stories every day
hoping  to feel more secure
keeping strong, paves the way

I'm a bit insecure, how about you
do you try to deny it, try to hide it
but,  dreams we all have a few
seeking a place for words to fit

sometimes, I write poetry
my words forming verses
branching out, a giving tree
reaching beyond the surface

perhaps, we're all insecure
pitching our stories every day
hoping to feel more secure
keeping strong, having our say

I'm a bit insecure, yes it's true
I try to deny it, I try to hide it
but,  dreams I still have a few
seeking a place for words to fit

author's note:  Alex this is for
you and the IWSG - insecurities
stand in the way of  dreams...

On The Bridge of Dreams

free photos- nps
She sits on the bridge
navigating the gateway
between here and there
he pilots her into another
world, full of adventure
she cannot touch his flesh
nor taste his lips, but
she can feel , hear
and see him in vivid
dreams he is alive
connected to
the fiber of
her being...

transcending all
boundaries
crossing the bridge
of uncertainty to find
a place they can call
their  own, one heart
on beat, one breath
rich salmon rocks
desert oasis full
of blooming cactus
their love spirals
through the universe

tuning into the
frequency of love

Anything is possible if you dare to dream

Blue Moon Moodiness

source unknown













Today, I view the moon in her full glory
I should sing her praises for the gift of light
through darkness...

BUT...

Today, I feel the moon her dark side
shadowing my thoughts and heart
in this world of confusion

WHO...

Will give witness to the goodness of life
opening the doorways to the unknown
glowing in heavenly light

WHAT...

will it take for humanity to see
we share this big blue planet
eclipsed in darkness and light

WHEN...

Will the sun warm our hearts
eternal love radiating outwards
to those who only know cold

WHERE...

have all the lost dreams gone
have they fallen into a vast crater
void of time and space

WHY...

Today, must I ride an emotional tide
uncertainty circles, earth is changing
awakening, under a blue moon
