Clean laundry
So neatly folded
In a pile
Makes me think
Of warm days, gentle breezes
My mother’s clothes line

Hung with the
Details of our lives
Dad’s blue shirts
My patched shorts
And the beautiful lacy
Slips my mother wore

A Silent Friend

d’Verse Poets Pub – MTB: Phantom Form — Shadorma

A Silent Friend

the fog knows
small secrets we keep
what we hide
from the light
like a good friend who won’t tell
what has been whispered

Heartsong

B&Ps Shadorma and Beyond – Nov 12, 016
Leonard Cohen is our inspiration for this week – especially his song Hallelujah

And over in the Imaginary Garden With Real Toads we are writing about those Still Points in our lives.

Heartsong

They stole my
words And spun them round
they didn’t
sound The same
Or even tell the story
That I meant to tell

They set them
To a melody
that Charmed the crowds And
fooled some fools
Until I
Wrenched them back again and sang
The song of my heart

I Struggle

B&P Shadorma  for Nov 5, 2016

Today’s poem is “Traveling Through the Dark” by William E. Stafford:

Here is my Shadorma inspired by this poem

~

right or wrong
is not always clear
I struggle
heart and head
do battle in the darkness
while my soul seeks peace
