Whispers on the Wind

roots

awake

tender shoots

yesterday’s seeds

rise beyond darkness

today’s vibrant serenade

promenade into calm meadow

gathering as one the old and new

mother nature inseminate beauty

V.J.’S WEEKLY CHALLENGE #39: UNANSWERABLE

The Unanswerable

Spring
are you
there waiting?
Stormy whiteout
falling on our heads
is this your answer, Spring?
Would you call off Winter please?
Snowflakes swirling in excitement
landing on expressive adjectives
snow laden evergreens, when is Easter?

and….
What did Thumper’s father say to him:
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”

Nighttime Prayer

guide
my soul
absolute
overseer
sprinkle trail with seed
so I may pursue thee
gleam light across nighttime path
disengage darkness from my heart
restore inner vision clarity
as I attentively embrace my life

Etheree poetry

Heirship

She
appears
triumphant
princess of lore;
formidable trek
unveil castle, wherein
sovereign monstrous queen, jealous
for securing her dominance,
sent infant princess to distant land;
firm staff in hand owed birthright homecoming
