#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 20: Orange Sky, by Cassa Bassa

tonight the moon is blue
hung high over the ocean tide
murmuring love tunes
to stir up the calm water
within me

this blue flame
licking my already burning skin
reminds me of the orange Sky
we lay under

the texture of your shyness
the layers of my wanting
peeling off the first blooms
of our love
and eternal desire


Orange Sky was inspired by the poem Blue Moon. You can read more of Cassa’s poetry at Flicker of Thoughts.

#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 5: My Blood, by Eunice Aformanor

They bloom with vibes
as grapes drive on vines,
butterflies welcome their
seasons in species,
My blood celebrate me.

But, when blooms derail
when transitions
cut off maturity,
and my blood
betrays me,
Can l announce
to denounce ?
Can any type
fit in tighter
than ‘A’?
Denouncing it
is denouncing
self and soul
denouncing it
is denouncing
my nature.

As healing rains fall
with water and fire
to take us higher,
so do l prepare
for the smooth,
the rough and
tough turns,
even for the never hoped for,
to be at peace with pains,
For no other can hide my
heartaches in smiles
than myself,
for Sorrow is a perfect Picture
of Love in progress.
