Dawn Thoughts – July 17, 2014


blood riddled news
attractive and nutritious
Dracula teaches



among dead leaves
new life reaches for the sun
eternal cycle


Renga: Jen and Georgia


here and now
where is the other place
illusive mind

river flows where it will flow
and birch sways in the wind storm
each minute is now
there is no arguing
with the moment

walk along the path with joy
this moment’s eternal
sun smiles today
listen, the chittering birds
are scolding the rain

such useless scolding
rain falls when and where it will
moaning their fates
people and chickadees
come rain or come shine

eternal lamentations
losing sight of the moment
happy encounters
creating wonderful verse
linking hearts

setting sun and rising sun /
linked in the same moment /
poetry /
is friendship among words /
sharing a vision //

through the maze … emotions
caressing understanding
peaceful rest
then a hearty breakfast
morning rituals

riffling through the newspaper
skimming through the emails
the mourning dove preens
and ruffles his feathers
his own ritual

money bee drones fill the news
his lamenting coos remark
stealthily, sun rises
new beginnings greet us
whispering wind

held aloft by the wind
butterfly spirals higher
one yellow needle
lets go of its crowded bough –
guided by the wind

the grass strewn with dead leaves
protects the new seedlings
new life sprouts
from the mulch arises
a young tree

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
