Posted in poetry, Shadorma


At B&Ps Shadorma and Beyond we are finding inspiration in the words of Bob Dylan.
I’ve taken mine from All Along the Watchtower.


I’m watching,
waiting for the truth
for sweet songs
telling the stories of peace
that will heal our wounds

spring rain

young leaves give shelter

tender buds

mountain meadow
wild flowers bow in silence

first snow fall
sparrows wait in pine trees
until blue sky returns

Lady October

Over in the Garden we’re writing about October
Lady October

She’s wrinkled and worn
Her beauty fading fast
She limps through the days
Energy waning
longer each night
of lost youth
under a hoarfrost blanket
Cold hands hiding her
warm heart
