The Power You Have – #poetry – #MayWriting


, , , , , , , , , ,

I close my eyes, a flash of light
Kinetic energy splits the night
Over and over, no end in sight
Why does the silence plague me?

No sounds, all thoughts are muted
For this I am no longer suited
Hoping for signs, yet refuted
Looking for someone to save me

Thrown to the shadows, so bleak
Is it the light, I constantly seek?
Body used, my mind, too weak
Letting go, the will you gave me

Turn toward the darkness, unspoken
My spirit is tired and broken
Captured in a tomb, I soak in
The power you have to enslave me

Pouting Petals – #poetry – #AprilWriting – #NaPoWriMo


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

When raindrops fall,
On petals soft,
The flowers pout,
As they do, oft

From the weight
Of fallen tears
Until the sorrow

Then nourishes,
All who grieve,
A silent means
To give reprieve

Tis then the sun,
Again, does shine,
To dry the tears,
Of those, who pine


Hard to believe #NaPoWriMo is over, although truth be told, it felt like an eternity.  Congrats to all who participated this year.  Here’s to 2021!! ❤

The Butterfly and the Bird – #poetry – #NaPoWriMo


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Said the butterfly to the bird

“I’ve heard an amazing thing

Warmer weather is coming!”

Said the bird, “Yes, it’s spring!”

“When flowers bloom in color,

And skies turn azure blue;

It’s then you’ll hear me singing

And see more butterflies, too!”

As both admired the flowers

Happily, they shared their day

Anticipating the sunshine

That’d soon, be heading their way


Author’s Note:  The weather has been so dreary and cold, I needed to write something happy.  I cannot wait for warmth!  Come on spring!! ❤
