At the edge of the day

Nestled flush

With the bay,

Light will dance

As it may

To invite you

To stay.

The Richness Of You

If a hollowing sorrow

Catches your breath in a

Hold

And then folds

Like a snail

Into what can’t

Be told …

Let the richness

Of you

Spread like gold

From a long ago story

Foretold,

Like the waves’

Gentle touch

On a morning’s

Threshold.

 

 

 

For dVerse’s quadrille challenge: Rich

 

 

Breath Power

Let the power

Of breath

Churn the air

Fill the earth.

Let the wind

Fill your sails

As you learn

To exhale.

Let the future

Flow clear

And may hope

Draw you near.

Crawl Space

Little arms

Little feet

Conquering sand

Waves to meet.

Breathing space

For a crawl

The expanse

Would not stall.

Revisiting Tranquility

As cooler days strip the grass

Into brown freezer spots,

Recall days of lush summer

Full of green sunny lots.

Take a breath

Of warm memory,

Hold the story

It told.

It will return

When the weather,

Meanders back from

The cold.

 

 

For the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Tranquil

 

Ocean Ohm

As the world tilts between breath

And release,

As the sea ebbs and flows

Into peace,

I remember my core

The heartbeat

Of my soul,

Batteries filled again

Making my spirit

Whole.

Inefficiently So

There is magic in finding

Some moments so slow

That life trickles along

In a lazy brook’s glow,

Like a pause in between

Busy ebb, bustling flow

A delicious respite

Into half-idle row

Caring naught though you know

If you come or you go

Inefficiently so.

There’s no place quite like it

And yet it’s more place than one

Where the surf breathes the ocean

Onto bare feet and sand.
