Sweet Nectar – #poetry #RDP


, , , , , , , , , ,

Melancholy skies fill, with a tantalizing serum

Showers down, upon the inflorescence of life

Blossoming, as they drink in the sweet nectar

Quenching each thirst, with abundance so rife


The original poem was written in 2014. I have reworked it for this challenge.

Fresh Air, No Despair – #NovemberWriting #poetry


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Soft fronds, waving, in a gentle breeze

Like the wind, blowing, through your hair

Silently swaying, they do as they please

Soaking in fresh air, no time for despair

For winter’s iciness will do what it takes

To places, where the tall grasses grow

Alas, quivering, in the ripples on the lake

Is the last of where autumn freely flows

Time to Eat – #poetry #RDP


, , , , , , , , , ,

Each day, right before it is time to eat

I jump up, on this wall, and say grace

Then enjoy the peanut, I found right here

Any chance, there are more in this place?

Bustling Beauties – #NovemberWriting #poetry


, , , , , , , ,

Wings that circle about, always in constant flutter

These tiny avian creatures, are unlike any other

Long beaks, to suck nectar, from feeders, up high

No problem for them, as they soar through the sky

Small bodies, with amazing colors, so very bright

That dance, as they shine, off the reflecting light

A hummingbird is not one to mind, should you stare

In fact, you can’t help it, with the beauty they share
