Robin

Standard

The red robin is watching me most intently

From the porch rail

Wondering if he should flee.

Unsure whether

My motions might inflict

Pain his way.

He relaxes as he realizes i am merely

Hanging my favorite dress out to dry

So I can wear it out

Tonight.

And once again begins his

Tune.

Sunrise with a morning song over my shoulder.

Magnolia Trees

Standard

The Magnolia trees are

Blooming. The flowers are stirring.

I watch the shades

Of color change on each leaf

As the sun rises.

As the greens brighten so

Quickly in response to the

Slightest touch of light,

As they come to life.

Anticipation trembling from

Root to top in realization there has come

Another

Day to grow.

The squirrels chitter.

The butterflies dance and the

Trees keep company as they do. 

They sing in sweet harmony,

“Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Open your eyes and heart.

See. See. See.”

Winter Morning

Standard

Writing this winter morning.

Thoughts so flitting,

Floating.

Coffee steaming,

Warming.

Snuggled in a blanket looking

Out frosted windows.

The kitty does not know what she wants

Jumping on my lap,

Then down.

I lose myself for moments

Distracted by the sunrise 

Over distant mountains.

On beats my heart a little louder.

Once again it grows stronger.

I recognize my courage.

READY

Standard

 

I took a moment
To swim
To the shore
Of the ocean,
This my life.
And i stood  and pondered once again.
My bare feet in the warmth of the sand.

My breath taken away by the wind.
This beautiful ocean

blue, green and gray
Is me.
It Is deep and endless.
The reflection
Stuns me as the sun rises,
As does everything in between.
That which begs still to be explored.
I am ready
Come what may
To dive back in.

What unknown part of me shall i delve into Next?

Melancholy

Standard

On this day I am feeling melancholy.

I cannot speak.

It is as if my hands are lead

And my feet do dread

Every step.

My eyes have forgotten how sweetly

They can see.

Even though the sun rises to

Caress my heart and remind me

I am alive.

My body screams

As it talks to itself

Misinterpreting every word.

My breath does not delight in the pleasure of

Breathing

This day.
