Morning echoes

misty morning, distant light

distant light
dim through mist not scattered
by breath of wind

sounds fold back upon themselves
echoes too close to be heard

Eventide

budding branches in a still evening against light cloud cover
Resting Winds

the wind rests quiet on the land
faint sunlight shrinks behind
tree branches and blue clouds
pasted on a blue-grey sky

birds sing summonings
then nestle into nests
for warmth throughout
a night with which the cold
returns too soon

cling to the cold, a shield
against the warming days

Day 26, Life-long learning | #NaPoWriMo2018

nahaiwrimo:April 26 LEARN

Real life-long learning doesn’t have to be profound or deep or even long-lasting. Doing so keeps us young! While in Boston this last weekend, I learned that I love lobster rolls. I also learned that I love the warm welcoming people I met. Learning something new blesses us all in one way or another and perhaps only in hindsight. Onward!

moist dirt between my toes
sunlight’s warmth
 
after a lingering winter
it’s time to plant flowers
