A Hint of Poetry for the New Year

Standard

Happy New Year, Happy New Life!

*

I wish no one
to die without a hint
of poetry

a hue of love
compassion or
passion

I wish you
all the urge to cross
over this

threshold
while in your home
a nice skin

seeking a touch
from heaven to come

.

Summer Poems – The Dog

Standard

*
she huffs and puts her face
down lined up with the concrete
patiently waiting for me

to remember to feed her
as I read and write and forget

the cat comes protesting
instead loud and demanding
until I get up to feed them both

Finding Rest

Standard

*
to soar up
above all

where stars
wait on the night

to pasture blue
clouds unkempt

where prayers
roam before

finding rest

Shining Bright

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

Sleepy Grass

Standard

*

pensive hazel eyes
flickering around
the night where

perfumes sail to
the clouds away

from the cracking
tiny sound of bare foot
on sleepy grass

Being There

Standard

*

being there
one day

where the sound
of butterflies wings

could be heard
stretched on a smile

attentive to my
body changes

on the awe of gratitude
cracking away

a bit at a time
to deeper life
