Cloudless Bluebird Sky

“It was a beautiful bright autumn day, with air like cider and a sky so blue you could drown in it.” 

― Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

Under a cloudless bluebird sky
picturesque autumn ambles in
dressed in finest colors
of amber, scarlet, gamboge, and I
anticipating the thrill of cooler weather
dream of nights by a fire sipping red wine
and sharing with you all my dreams
of a life spent cherishing simple things.

#Shadorma: Watercolor Sky

“In silence the three of them looked at the sunset and thought about God.” 

― Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

Barren land
sunset warms sandstone
dry landscape
haunting place
as a watercolor sky
kisses the terrain

A Certain Death

Photo Courtesy of: Robert Sullivan

Should someday I find myself alone with nothing left but my words
my soul content, will be at peace my heart will carry no burdens.

For poetry is in my every breath, and all that comes between
this life I live and a certain death both mystery and majesty.

When I see a color stained sky painting a farewell to apricot sun
my thoughts take wing, flying from mind to hands to vellum.

The scent of blooming lavender wafting on the nascent breeze
sets my romantic soul dreaming how it must feel to be a honeybee.

As grey mockingbird sings a joyous creation of what he’s heard
my trembling heart sighs trying to put his music into words.

Though gnarled fingers ache from the betrayal of these aging bones
my poetic words must live on with hope someone will understand.

Poets United: Wild Friday Sanaa has asked us to use a poem as inspiration from the book Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. Below are the lines of a poem I chose as my inspiration:

my heartbeat quickens at the thought 
of birthing poems
which is why I will never stop opening myself up
to conceive them’

Happy Little Duckies

“Art is what you can get away with.” 

― Andy Warhol

Happy, happy, happy
smiling little duckies
perched in rows and rows,
they’ll never reveal
what they see, see, see
which is why they are
the perfect friends
for you and me, me, me
as we in secret, steal a kiss
while floating
in a pineapple sea, sea, sea
of marshmallowy bliss,
dressed in our finest jeweled silks
with a grumpy blue teddy bear
between, between, between
innocence and intimacy
