Snow: a poem

Sifting down out of the sky
Nibbling away at the edges of definition
Obliterating all in a blanket of
White.

Quiche #poem

Quivering
Under my fork
Indescribably flavorful, like
Coming suddenly
Home from an
Excursion.

Rain #poetry

Water gently spilling from the sky

Soft mist fills the trees
Thunder and lightning crash

Drops fall faster and faster
Mixed with ice chunks
Suddenly quiet — slow drops tumbling down

Telling Stories #poem

Telling stories in poetry:
Take 1 entire lived experience,
1 memorable scene
Add 2 dashes quicksilver words
Reduce
And read.

Dawn #poem

As dusk comes softly

So does night flee
Creeping away

On blue-gray cats’ paws
Batting the night softly into
The golden light of dawn

April Morning #poem

Cool gray morning

Streets shine in
The gleam of headlights

Green leaves open
Under the welcome
Raindrops.

Spring Morning

Early morning haze
Rain smell, hiding sun behind
Fat water drops.

Love is a treasure

Take the time
Relationships
Endure
Always
Speak your love
Until you
Rest for-
Ever.

Blue Skies #poem

The mournful sound of old love songs

Half heard on the edge of memory
Take me back

To the long ago days
When you loved me
And I loved you.

Sandcastle #poetry

Sand — carefully packed and shaped

Carved into a castle
Complete with moat

The waves wash higher on the shore
Closer and closer
Until the castle crumbles away.
