Snowfall

soft
snowfall
fairyland
children’s moist tongues
steal fluffy crystals
tasting euphoria
arms and legs, swaying frenzy
snow angels, powdery designs
rosy cheeks, gaiety, snowsuit warmth
hot chocolate aroma, mom’s kitchen

Hero

A hero is born not from the laurels
of glory but from courteous respect
successful yet unpretentious
equivalent companion
educates through action
applause others’ feat
compassionate
heart in sync
being
real

Etheree Poem

Dream

Helene had a dream, along came Minou
paw prints in winter wonderland.
Engaging starlit firmament
sheds light on frosty landscape.
Dream walk to open door
sun, sand, sea, warmth, light
swift turning point
middle ground
absent.
Dream

Haiku poem

faces of disguise
liberate uncertainty
light and dark are yours

Double reverse Etheree Poetry form

I will be there

red lanterns fade into a starry sky

semblance of your face darkens through time

we stood as one in commitment

then your memory was gone

I carry on alone

into golden years

you in my heart

 we will meet

again

soon

there

will be

red lanterns

releasing me

home to your embrace

we will dance on a star

illuminate a night sky

sun will radiate through darkness

in everlasting togetherness

 alongside our Lord we rest on the moon

Etheree poetry

Woman on a Bench

lone
woman
on a bench
her back to me
holds hidden secret;
energy pulls at me
toward alive familiar;
spellbound, my awareness arise
sitting alongside, I glance her way
there looking back is my intimate self
