The Winding Road – Circular Poem – December 8, 2015

“Gentle, go on yonder winding road,
Snowed under by this winter’s crop ..
Stop not but wander until you find
Entwined bright green mistletoe vines …”
Whispered pines (teases dressed in green
E’en as others must go bare)
“Care not for false form or cheating,” say they
“Play the game fair, be not judgmental!
Gentle, go on yonder winding road.”

The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt #14

(5) Words: | GENTLE | WANDER | TEASE | GAME | FORM |

Last week for The Secret Keeper’s weekly writing prompt, Jane Dougherty  wrote a love Circular Poem which I admire very much … enough to write that I felt tempted to try a second Circular Poem … having said it, I felt committed .. but it wasn’t until today that I felt inspired.

Morning Haiku and Waka – December 20, 2014

young lovers
discover sprigs of mistletoe
early harvest

винтаж и рождество

winds around the tree
lover’s embrace

the bulb sleeps under straw
a daffodil sprouts

винтаж и рождество

in a crib
fresh straw laid out
a child’s birth
