Day 12 – Nature’s Puppeteer | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

black and white fallen leaves on the ground
Autumn Dances

 

swirling on the path
fall leaves dance to nature’s tune
just before the snow

Day 15: Two Poems #NaPoWriMo

leaf and late-day shadow on concrete

To a dead leaf, lost on concrete

I found myself considering the sadness of leaves and seeds that fall where they can neither decompose nor have the opportunity to germinate and grow. And so, on a (serious) whimsy, I promised the residue on the garage floor that when I was finished with taking their photographs, there, I would gather up them all and return them to the outdoors, where they may decay, or sprout, and live again.

I cry for the leaves on the garage floor
thrown out in new plastic bags
not renewing the soil

Hey, tone it down, there!
Pitch-and-Toss ain’t meant to be
no blame shoutin’ match.

“Pitch-and-Toss” is a game of chance.

unlooked-for rainbows

after clouds whose showers bathed

new ice forming

ice reforms on quiet waters
tucking in the warm

western sky after sunset

from the darkness
birds call out their parting songs
the day is done…now
rest

A Haiku and a Memorate #NaPoWriMo #NaGloPoWriMo

pinetree across the way, mid-March 2019
Tree in Winter

puppies by my feet
pine trees swayed by rising winds
and yet…stillness

Prompt: Write an Animal poem. (I think this prompt is yesterday’s.)

 

Mother’s Approval
a memorate

asleep, I saw her walk
toward me from the new workshop
she smiled and passed

waking, I recalled that she
had died before we built it
