Pensive Park

In a park, on a lawn,  by a

Trail

This board aimless wander

Curtails,

And the question it

Raises

Brings along varied

Phrases.

What would your heart

Assign

If you saw such a

Sign?

Rapids

And the waters

Rushed

Over slicked rocks

Into ravines.

Deafening the song

Of birds,

And burbling of

Fish,

Into thunder

Mist

As the bamboo

Creaked.

This Little Light

This little light

That shines

This little light

So fine

This little hand

Aglow:

May your wonder

In wonder

Grow.

Stop to Sip

Walking along

Paths of life,

Stop to sip

Pause to laugh.

Make small moments

Of cool calm,

Find someone

To lean on.

Take a rest

Take the air,

Live well through

Time’s wear and tear.

Comfort Blessing

May you find a place of comfort

May you have someone to hold

May your heart be soothed to purring

May your spirit not be cold

May cruel winters turn kind summers

May you hear true stories told

May you leave behind the sorrow

May you see the good unfold.

Water Rise

Water rises

Like ice

From warm oceans,

To mimic islands.

 

 

For the Wits End Weekend Photo Challenge: drops

(FWIW: The photo was taken on a phone, through a plastic screen, from a speedboat in full throttle while it bounced on the wake of another …  It was fun. It was wild. Focus wasn’t to be had …)

Bridged Time

Little feet

Crossing stones

Little hand

Holding phone.

Do his toes

Marching on

Note how time

Isn’t gone?

Does his heart

Understand

How the stream

Breathes calm

Underneath

His young mind,

Singing songs

Burbling home?

Seated Snow

A look back

To what is a

Near future indeed

When snow will

Again

Take a seat

And winter will

Once more

Repeat.

 

 

Note: No filter was used. This was the actual monochrome light on a sudden snowy morning this past April.

For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Tables or chairs

 

Water Weave

And the clouds

Bowed

To ocean

Weaving rain

Waves to sky

Kissing veils

Onto mountains

Drenching wet

Speeding by.
