Palm and Paw

A palm and paw on journey’s path delight

A moment’s joy along the twisted way

Where time constricts the winsome hope of night

To bring a bit of joy at end of day

Lilies in-the-wild

Life lost like pink moonlight, like shadows of the sun

In times we outrun the summers of our days

Finding remembrance before the parting

Of our ways

Before pandemic climes surmount

The life we knew

The active days and scented nights

The loves that count

Wings

Do weary wings find rest along the way

As seasons pass and blooms drift into night

Or once untethered do they find their way

Till journey’s final dream bids them good-night

Starlight Blooms

Gone are nights of music

Lost like sweet perfume

Blooms once dressed by starlight

Now must shine by noon

I found this lovely rose blooming on my walk and couldn’t resist taking a few photos. Later that night, it inspired my poem that recalls the loss of live music and dancing since the pandemic.

I hope you enjoy them!

Sunlight Yellow

Glorious yellow flowers bloomed along my walk, seeking sunlight as if the summer heat wasn’t enough.

Blooming

They blossom in an untouched world

Living faintly-scented dreams

Flowers in full-flush glory

As summer blooms from spring

The Air We Breathe

The air I breathe
Gives life where
Lungs expand like clouds
Stretching across the horizon

I breathe in days
Of freshly scrambled eggs
And toast shared over smiles
In the morning light

We delight in lazy afternoons,
Long, lakeside walks
The smell of warm pines
Their needles crunching beneath our feet

The air we breathe
Propels us through the night
As music wafts through French doors
And curtains sway in the breeze

The warmth of your hand on my back
Is imprinted on my memory
I feel your touch in my mind
As the flesh falls away

In the pandemic
The air we breathe
Takes life away
And shriveled lungs
Search in silence
Across deserts left in dismay.

Promise

From the quiet corners of our worlds, we take collective flight in the clouds and take hope in the promise of acanthus yet to bloom.

Reflections

We became shadows of our past, reflections longing for Technicolor light and moonlit nights when we danced in each other’s arms.  Instead, we see pines in sidewalk puddles, our heads bent, independent and alone.  How long will it be before we see the stars?

Freedom – What do you miss?

Remembering times, not carefree, but free.  Succulents filled photos splashed by the sun and long walks knew no end.
