Rainbow

Carpe Diem 1795 New Beginnings … Rainbow

promise of spring
a rainbow shimmers above
winter garden

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

after the storm
a rainbow reminds us
to have faith

 

 

 

Redwing Blackbird

blackbird

perched on  the treetop
redwing blackbird shimmies
shaking water from his back

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

from treetop perch
redwing blackbird shakes his head
with precision
dispelling water
rainy afternoon

Waiting for Morning

Carpe Diem # 955 Morning

after midnight
the big dipper empties
over the maple

 

~~~

 

at two a.m.
the evening star balances
on the neighbors roof

 

~~~

 

around five
one bright star high overhead
and tree shadows

before dawn
the clouds fill with light
start of perfect day

 

daybreak.jpg

daybreak
air fills with birdsong
amber orb ablaze

~~~

 

early morning
the smell of fresh cut grass
and a rooster’s crow

 morning heat.jpg

 

morning heat
tulip bows
to the sun

Clinging

clinging
to the edges of life

River of Time

STD_9331

Beyond the breath of time
Collective memories cradle us
as we relive this moment again and again.
River of tears forever etched;
The voice of our ancestors still warm.

Just for Fun Poetry Challenge

Who is up for a poetry contest?

Okay, so I found the following list in my poetry file from 2007.  An unfinished poem? Not a clue what I was going to write about.  So here’s the challenge – You have two weeks to submit a poem based on the list in red.  On March 6th, it will switch to voting and you will have one week to vote for your three favorite poems.  I will post these three on a blog with links to the authors..

Trembling tears

captured in threads

Devoted kiss
weeping death

the red silence
silken tales

Roses of obsession
whispering tears
flames of waves
splintered thorn
lost petals
frozen kiss
weeping in the sky

loose threads

 

さんさんとそそぐ朝日の文机に遺す未完の歌ぞ淋しき

How lonely I would be
left behind on my desk
an unfinished poem
in the glorious morning sun

Insomnia

Late at night
unable to sleep
I wander the house
cobwebs still
fill my head
I lie back down
but sleep
sleep will not come
my mind churning
spewing out thoughts
faster
faster than I can think
my eyes dry
and heavy
with lack of sleep
I rise once more
I read, I write
I nod
but sleep is fickle
it does not come to me
to me
     to me
           to…
                      
me
