Author’s Note: Every time I think of this border wall, and the impact it will have on our environment, I am sad and disheartened. When will we ever learn? To read more on this: Sierra Club

Gone Moon

The mysterious gloom is charcoal black
for our luminous moon has disappeared
stars no longer gleam and as we feared
The mysterious gloom is charcoal black


For our luminous moon has disappeared
Once dazzling sun lost and lonely without
with earth’s future now in serious doubt
For our luminous moon has disappeared


Once dazzling sun lost and lonely without
the bright orb to share its warming light
in deep dark blackest coldest of nights
Once dazzling sun lost and lonely without


The mysterious gloom is charcoal black
for our luminous moon has disappeared
stars lose their gleam and as we feared
The mysterious gloom is charcoal black

Author’s note: For the weekend mini challenge at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads– Strange News. I chose to write about the question: What if the moon disappeared tomorrow? I wrote a Catena Rondo, my first! Also linking to Poetry Pantry

Hope with Wings

the sound of the surf
enters my home through the open window
and a butterfly

symbol of resurrection
hope with graceful vibrant wings

Fortune

One’s fortune should not be chains of gold
nor glittering diamonds or a
jewel encrusted chalice,
But rather sweet desire’s
nuance on rose lips,
luscious potion
of fervor
bathed in
love.

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge

Safe

My lips are the dew drenched rose yearning for the buzzing bee
to gather my words like pollen and make of them sweet honey

My eyes are the storm clouds burdened with the cleansing rain
longing to fall at last to feel the heat of your bright sun again

My fingers are tendrils of Morning Glory seeking a spot to cling
caressing those tender places entreating your desires to sing

My arms are the weeping willows surrounding you from above
a respite from the world, safe in the shelter of my forever love

Author’s Note: Happy Valentine’s Day to My Big Viking. I’ll love you forever!

First Day of Spring

First day of spring–
I keep thinking about
the end of autumn.                                                 © Basho

winter memories linger
cold chills in brisk morning air
