watching wicked

I sit in silence
wicked blues, and greens

across the horizon of mind

a prompt
and nature of cosmos
in, and out of time

days once lost
are now filled with love, and with the

of you close
realizing this truth

I hold tight
and never let you go

Prized Possession, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am pleased to announce that my poem, Prized Possession, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. Thank you, Barbara Leonhard, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for your continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Prized Possession

I look in the mirror
and find
a reflection, known to none, yet
known to all

a persona of nature
and of soul, dancing within
an interlude, a prized possession –

I’d be honored if you would read the full poem here. Thank you!

Here is the last poetic response to the Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow: 30 Poems in 30 Days Collaboration that I have written at this time. If time permits, I will write poetic responses to the last 4 or 5 beautiful poems that were submitted to this collaboration.

Rise Again

sitting with the feelings that arise
it was your eyes

always looked into
like the sun

a shadowed world

grays, mixed with other fragrant

a burgeoning in my heart

when you chose to depart
this plane for another, it kept me

among the pain and mourning
deep within

though I now realize
this pain wasn’t a sin

so, I rise again

Rise Again was inspired by the poem, The Resurrection of Red by, Camellia.
