Hush

d’Verse Poets Pub – Almost a Triolet

Frank has us flexing our poetic muscles by writing a Triolet

Join the fun at the Pub

I like the hush of twilight
When even birds are still
exiled is sun’s gypsy light
I like the hush of twilight
When day becomes contrite
And moon’s glow overspills
I like the hush of twilight
When even birds are still

Capturing the Sun

Sunny-side up! At d’Verse Poets Pub
Lillian is looking for some sun

Capturing the Sun

I picked a bunch of
Buttery daffodils
Trying to capture the sun
To keep a little piece for
Those days when the sky
Is only shades of gray
With dabs of paint and
Bold brush strokes my
Canvas is covered with
Yellow ruffles of sunshine
That cloudy days can not
Obscure

Morning Gloria

Poetic Asides – Nov chapbook challenge

Day 1 – write a New Day poem

~

Morning Gloria

morning sashays in like
a woman in a red dress
who knows everyone is watching
she pushes the darkness
into a corner where it will
cower until her glow turns
and strolls away

High Flying Dreamer

d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille #38 – Dream

Sweet dreams, De

High Flying Dreamer

I’m dreaming, scheming, seeming
to fly to the edge of the gleaming sun
then fall back to earth,screaming
with joy, hair streaming behind like a sail
inhale, exhale, breath slowly
let it flow, run downhill
until exhausted I rest in the
arms of Orpheus

TROUBLES

I was having trouble sleeping

Moon came peeping

Caught me crying

Left me sighing

 

I was having trouble waking

Sun came shaking

On my shoulder

Left me bolder

 

I was having trouble seeing

Love was fleeing

You came giving

Life worth living

Collaboration for Peace – 51

Sol

Shadows still play
On the path to peace
Veins of the vicious
Testing our strength
To reach for the light

Dodge the darkness
Stretch your arms
To the sun
Embrace the heart
Of humanity
