HOT COFFEE! (12/30)

April 12, 2018

poetry 12-30 H-hot

steam rises, wafting
breathe deeply, anticipate
imminent delight

draw in magic scent
eyes closed, hands around warm mug
tongue inches forward

gentle contact made
slurpy sip slowly consumed
palate meets pleasure

morning medicine
I am revived and ready
coffee, hot and black

 

Poetry 11-30 G-gold-1

golden sunrise

in my eyes

sky’s ablaze

with magic rays

gold medal day

is under way

spring stands still

air is chill

sun is warm

will soon transform

lift our moods

winter concludes

Poetry 11-30 G-gold-2

 

 

Fiery Cardinal (10/30)

April 11, 2018

Fiery cardinal

calls to his mate

calls to spring

tree branch is bare

spring is late

his song won’t bring

the fresher air

while we wait

the crimson king

sings without care

 

 

ephemeral beauty (9/30)

April 10, 2018

poetry 9-30 E-ephemeral

white, pink, blue, purple

when you’re fresh you’re beautiful

freshness is fleeting

 

 

Dainty (8/30)

April 10, 2018

poetry 8-30 D-dainty

the cat comes in

on little snow feet

she makes her rounds

the day to greet

she moves around

without a sound

the air is sweet

with the smell of snow

she pauses now—

where next to go?

 

 

cat coasts (7/30)

April 8, 2018

 

curled tail wards off fiends

look at the tip twitching now

what’s that over there

 

something is nearing

the mysterious unknown

staring intently

 

sit and wait a bit

scamper away in a flash

stop and wait some more

 

a skeptical glance

nose doesn’t leave warmth of tail

older and wiser

 

 

Poetry 6-30 B-branch-1

bracing wind bare tree
branches vie for attention
nothing left to give

bare tree branches wave
against the sky become free
slice a rift in air

waving branch believes
she answers to no one else
now embraces sky
