Drip, Drip, Dripping

Tiptoeing in, silent,
Peeking around the corner
Watching waiting,
Quite as the mourner,

The fog, drip, drip,dripping
Silvery,ghost like hands
Moving in, drip, drip, dripping

Moving slowly, drip, drip, dripping
Leaving a cold moist kiss
Swirling tendrils, drip, drip, dripping

Thick and thin drip, drip, dripping
Here then gone again
Muffling sounds, drip, drip, dripping

Hated, yet loved, drip, drip, dripping
Embraced, yet rejected
Desired, yet scorned,drip, drip, dripping

Leaving, job done, drip, drip, dripping
Til next time needed
Moving on, drip, drip, dripping

Tiptoeing out, silent,
Peeking around the corner
Watching waiting,
Quite as the mourner,

The blue jay so resplendent
In shiny white and blue

The cardinal, glowing vibrant
Clothed in red and black

The small Chickadee, so shy
Dressed in black and white

Beachy Sandy Feet

Running to the waters edge
Hot sandy feet
Waves splash coolly
Fish nibble tickley
Cool sand comforts
Standing gazing
Not wanting to leave.

No chair to sit in
Sun is glaring
Crabs are biting
Feet are cold and wet
No towels, no shoes
Sand sucking at our feet
Need to leave.

My Eye

My eye
Do you see?

The things of life around me.

Assaulting the senses

A kaleidoscope of input
So much so

That I need TWO eyes to see it all.

New Horizons

Cold and dark
So far from home
Will I ever feel the sun again?

The end has happened
But you cannot see
The heavens obscure the horror.

Onward though to a new beginning
Starting over, ever so sure.
Leave the hate, bring the love.

No monsters, only us
Beings...human, alien and more
Together forever bound.

Trees 01182014

(note- tried to overlay some gnarled trees in the pic.....the poem that is italicized goes with the gnarled trees)

Trees in my yard
Front and back

     Gnarled trunks
     Spindly branches

Leafy and green
Never out of whack

     Reaching to the sky
    Hidden in the dark

Shady in the summer
When the sun shines bright

     Black and grey
     Often ignored

Bare in the winter
When the cold winds bite

    No protection given
    No protection gained

Home to the birds
Home to the squirrels

     Destined to be lonely
     Never to be seen
Safe and sound
When the wind swirls

     Bent and curled
    Grasping at the earth

Standing straight
Roots deep in the earth

    Bent and twisted
    Never royalty to be 

Majestic trunks
With large round girths

     Saddness and sorrow
     Flows from the heart

Happiness over flows
When looking at the trees

     So glad they can't be seen
     So glad to just melt away

So sad for those
Who can't see the trees.

Glorious Morn - 30 words

Icy cold breath
sweeps across the land

All is hushed
anticipation swells

The light shines
clouds swirl in

The mountain shines
emerging from the mist

Glorious Morn is upon us
