Shadows’ Way

As the shadows lengthened

At the end of day,

She paused,

Reflecting,

On the direction

Of her way.

Safe Angle

At the edge of the

Down Under

Where water angles

Into sea,

There’s an old pool

Where you safely

Hold the sharks at bay,

And be.

“You can do it!

Go higher!

Almost there,

Almost there!”

Garden Gnome,

Will inspire

Every bug

On stem’s stair.

The weight of the world

On his shoulders.

His heart thumps a fatigue

In his chest.

Eons stretch

Since certain with brawn

He sought

With his strength

To impress.

May there be a home

Inside this house,

Where the strength

And flexibility

Of bamboo

Is proffered,

As basis for the rapid

Steady growth

Love offers.

Toe in Tow

Lost Sock ArletteLoeser

There’s a little

Big toe

Twirling free

On the go,

As the other

In tow

Hopes its own

Sock

To throw.

Climb Up

Climb up

From the abyss

Toward the sun

Upon

The meadows.

Climb up

From way beneath

To where clouds are

The only

Shadows.

From The Other Side

April 2018 Snow. Photo: Na’ama Yehuda

 

Last year’s snow

Gave way

To melted cold,

So blooming trees

 This Spring

Unfold

To leak

New life

To Winter’s old.

Line In The Water

Line in the water NaamaYehuda

Draw a line in the water

To hold a boundary

For speed,

Where the motors

Rush inward,

For horizon

To meet.

 

Float a line strung together

Of what floats

And won’t sink,

So you can

After sunset

Draw it home

And night

Concede.
