Day 24 – Butterfly Memories | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

painted lady butterfly on an open black-eyed susan flowerflower

cloudy skies
threatening late-autumn snow
leaves on the wind

memories of butterflies
flower pollen, gentle breeze

Day 6 – Autumn Leaves | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

Autumn Collage

leaves in the front yard
brown, windblown collages
snow melted and gone

looking forward once again
to icy streets and soft snow

Day 18 – From Solid Ground | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)



from the mountaintop
I was always looking down
in dells I look up

peaks provide a heady view
but in valleys, heaven’s light

Day 29: Whatever it takes | #NaPoWriMo

spring clouds behind barren tree branches

Brewer: “For today’s prompt, write a response poem. Respond to whatever helps you get your poem written…”

dry leaves dance above—
leaping higher than treetops
stripped by April winds

green shoots kissed by dirt and rain
pledge autumn one more harvest

This poem is in response to a poem not from this challenge, but one that I wrote for the 2008 SFPA poetry contest; the theme was “Energy”. The poem’s title is “Future Freedom”. It’s the second poem on this page of my QuiltedPoetry blog.
