Love 8
Panning for Gold?
(Shadorma)

The patter
Of my heart – is it
Close in dreams
Or far like
Neverland’s location – come
Seek, and please find me…

Perusing Summer Daze
(shadorma series; 50 words including title)

The rabbits
Respond to the warmth
Carefully
Creep out of
Safety; a perceived mansion
The old man’s farmhouse

Drinking deep
From the cistern they
Peruse dawn,
Undulate
Inquisitively at the
Unguarded garden

Vibrating
Out of opaque sky
Chimera?
Just a hawk
Hunting artisan wants a
Delicious breakfast

BE22: A United Confluence (*a reverse Shadorma Summation)

A union
Part of reunion
Holding dear
Those we love
Sharing their space; witness, face
Their warm brilliant smiles

As time continues to move forward sharing the same space
as those we love becomes more challenging with distance.
So treasure that union, that reunion when you all can get
together especially when the only reason is for ‘love’.

Union

The air that covers our wonderful planet links all beings
In the cycle of breathing in and breathing out.

BE21: Right Rebel (a *Shadorma Summation)

Too many pans in the fire, does that mean everything is half baked?
I have hands that cooperate with my crafty side – weaving words as
well as simple wearable art. They have also modeled the beads which
have been strung to dangle from wrists, necks and lobes of ears.

I have drawn what my eyes have seen to paper with colored pens and
photography… yet few could say I have earned my way in life by any
of those things. One had to be practical when younger to raise a family,
to raise flags and faith, to raise respect for hobbies…

Now I read
That I have been right
All my life
Enabling
Myself to coexist when
Challenged by others

BE8: A Love Exchange

I almost
stepped upon one huge

on the walk,
without pause, I did rescue
the caterpillar

Booty?

we have
played the
same game of life with different
rules; and could both win – if
we think
outside of
the box
*
still gasping
holding back my tears
not wanting
to be harsh
you have to understand that
opinions differ
*
the box
inside of
it could
hold a multitude of delightful treasure
but you refuse to polish that
which you
don’t want

haiku and Shadorma:
Sit in The Grass

to find good insects
like the lady beetle and
grasshopper, sit still

the little pollinators
have their purpose here and now
*
count her spots,
hear him play music,
watch seeds dance
in the breeze
smell the petrichor of spring
connect with the ground
*
