Pink Strong

Underneath the soft plumage

And pretty colors

Afield,

Resides a strength to protect

From those who violence

Wield.

Underneath the pink top

The hat of power

Revealed,

Live truths of how both

Softness and thorns

Are required

To be healed.

Commuting Perspective

When stuck in stalled traffic

Or standing smooshed on the train

I remind myself how

For many

The commute is truly a strain.

Autumn’s Call

Trees will soon

Heed the call

To dress leaves

To enthrall

In the glorious

Ball

Foretelling cold

Yet to

Fall.

Ready To Go

I have all that I need:

My bag on my back,

Soother to help me accede,

Favorite hoodie,

Warm sleeves,

My baby tucked in carrier

Cozy and fast asleep.

I think all is ready.

Now we can leave.

Shuttle flies

Right and left

In hands

Steady and deft

Every line

Adding heft

Beauty born

Warp and weft.

Life’s Elixir

In the cradle of life

Where all breathing

Begins

Rocks the ebb

Of all else

That we are

Deep within.

There is nothing more lovely

Than riding in pair

Over waves

Under skies

Skimming high

Fins in air.

Chill Your Fill

If you’re out and about

But your thirst is quite real

There’s a clear stream awaiting

To help you chill your fill.
