Journey

20130404_194722_1

A solitary

robin on a bare branch

spring morning

 

Traveling this path

new growth everywhere

fresh scent

 

All long this trail

not a single soul

only signs of spring

Radiance

Misty clouds part

pale golden sphere

a prefect spring day

 

This day of spring

in the garden

colour graces

 

Warm spring breeze

gently caresses

small birds chirp

Luminous

Pale moonlight

young colt

runs along the corral

 

This majestic beast

lifts its head upward

white coat shimmers

 

Proud prancing

muscles rippling

he exhales white

Piercing breeze

Delayed

Spring chill

above bare branches

menacing clouds

 

Spring snowfall

just enough

to dampen the spirit

 

Spring winds

Forsythia delayed

melancholy

Spring sun

weakly peaks through

Over petals

dappled light kisses

small splashes of colour

Hint

 

photo1 

A spring like day

bright sunlight

slowly warming up

 

Inching toward spring

sweet in its simplicity

pale golden light

 

Freshness everywhere

colours awaiting birth

blue the first to arrive

Reminisce

Summer past

looking inward

recalling warmth

 

Warm rains

bring life

colour and blooms

 

These memories

I see so clearly

pink peonies

Each year without

really knowing

I prepare

to remember

your passing

 

Suddenly the date

is noted

I pause

I remember

Lapsed

 

I wonder alone

in my black dreams

in my silent void

 

I feel out of step

with my sisters

I am silent by choice

 

I tell no one of my pain

not a word escapes my lips

Breeze from the west

fallen leaves gather

at my doorstep

 

Leaves falling

falling on one another

the breeze carries them away

Passing Moment

Colours of seasons past

spill into my dreams

leaves warmed to a bronzed hue

linger on I like to think for me

dawn coloured blue and misty

new light bathing seed pods ready to burst

the warmth of autumn golden and giving

By the Lake

Through the trees and across the lake

its surface dull gunmetal gray

on this cold day without sun

only a biting razor sharp wind

that fragments one’s view

as tears collect from the cold

the skyline of the city

Vast Empty Spaces

 The silence is deeper

than I can believe

 

There is no comfort

or wisdom in this silence

 

The void I’m in offers little but

empty promises followed by denialRead full post »

Recurrence

The night hangs

over the landscape

like a void

 

Its voice

a rasp so small

it goes unheard

 

Threads of light

bleed downward

spilling into the earth

 

Here I stand

Night Sky

The clock chimes three a.m.

through half closed lids seeing

the night sky through the window

a consuming black emptiness

 

The night still smells of you

in dreams you come to me

I crave to touch you

you’re always out of reachRead full post »

Morning Hue

 Morning red sky

whispered voices

of bare trees

distant bird song

flickering through

cold hardened

grasses now blackened

meandering through here

most mornings

attempting to make

sense of life

choices made or paths not taken
