Winter ornaments

leaves in the snow
Leaves on the Snow

leaves dance on the wind
celebrating with the snow
winter’s scattered art

Day 23 – Listening | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

Dry Leaves on the Grass

no more ideas
nothing to be done with that
but to keep still
listening from my silence
to the heartbeat of the world

tulips in the side garden
Joy in Springtime

 

warm winds and raindrops
filling up the tulip cups…
sliding down long leaves

Peonies

night’s soft cloak
sun’s lingering warmth
cloud-clad stars

summer’s breeze is redolent
with scents of sleeping flowers

Some distance between posts

During September and October, I was taking a six-week photography workshop online from Andy Ilachinski via Shanti Arts. Didn’t get in much off-topic writing during that time. Quite absorbing.

Day 14, Open Air Dining | #NaPoWriMo2018

I decided to go back to yesterday’s poetry prompts list and write a poem to go with my favorite grasshopper photograph.

Brewer: “For today’s prompt, pick an insect (any insect), make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: “Praying Mantis,” “Ants,” and “Grasshoppers.” I’ll even except other creepy crawlies, like spiders, slugs, and leeches (shiver). Sorry in advance if this prompt gives you the heebie-jeebies; feel free to use insect repellent in your verse.”

“Grasshopper”

one warm summer day
a debonair grasshopper
dines on a flower

spotting a street photographer
he grins between bites and bows
