A New Breeze

Fluttering through shadow and light

Caught up by the softest breeze.

Landing on flowers and holding tight,

Gathering the goodness of pollen

And sipping on droplets of water

Nestled deep in petals in the shade.

Closing and opening brightly colors wings

A swallowtail of black and gold

Flitting and pulsing faster and faster

Until letting go and floating away

Upon a new breeze to flowers unknown.

Spring Forth

The freshness of spring bursts forth,

While grasses and leaves of green grow,

And buds turn into blossoming flowers.

Bees and birds take to the skies,

Filling our ears with hums and songs.

Welcoming is the renewal season,

Joy and fresh air fill our hearts and lungs.

Come now my dear and plant a gentle kiss

Upon blushing cheek touched by sun.

NaPoWriMo, poetry, writing

Controlled Motion

Gasping, tremors, needing air.

Stumbling to the back,

Desperate for a drink of water.

Throat is dry like the desert as

quivering hands struggle,

The clear liquid sloshes in its bottle.

Finally a gulp goes down,

As sweat drips into eyes.

But relief is not found.

Light exercise, it’s not…

This is a form of torture!

Too Early

Remembering back to when I had an adorable husky pup who would wake me in the early mornings a couple decades ago…Dedicated to my sweet girl, Anissa.

Tea in my cup,

Come wake me up.

Don’t look at me that way.

Here’s your ball, let’s play,

You cute little pup.
