#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 16: Divine Flight, by Jaya Avendel

I curve toward the milky way

A bird on aliferous wing

Threads cut from cabaret stocking trace

Patterns onto my skin.

The silver bell chimes sharp and mournful

I celebrate the ascendance toward divine

Goddess of love opens the way to heaven

Her blood red rose and sunset eyes

Invite me in.

Cosmic garden blossoms from bone

Water lily rides the coattails of the moon

When I inhale, I taste the world.

It sings to me.


Divine Flight was inspired by the poem Cosmic Arts. You can read more of Jaya’s poetry at Nin Chronicles.

#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 6: The Butterfly Poet, by Paula Light

Asleep in her chrysalis,
Small and insignificant,
She’s waiting,
Hesitating,
Unsure where she fits in.
Her dreams ebb and flow,
Gentle and slow;
Desire and longing
Lie obscured in the mist.
She’s safe in this womb,
Her cozy cocoon,
Where no judgments can drift.
But life teems all around:
The scents and the sounds,
Meter and rhyme forming verses sublime–
She breaks free and takes wing.
Adrift on a breeze,
She spies the nectar she needs;
Vast fields of inspiration
Fill her heart with elation.
Now proud and unafraid,
Her emotions are displayed
On the outside.
No more pseudonyms
And no need to hide–
She’s finally at peace
Inside her own skin.


The Butterfly Poet was inspired by the poem Butterfly Love. You can read more of Paula Light’s poetry at Light Motifs II.

take flight

love lives in the sky
a blanket of stars

much deeper than I can know
or, upon rely

and, while I’ll always try
I know, my love

once hidden, can now take flight

Flight

Lolame @ Pixabay

One, two, three
I see

Flapping their wings
Symmetrically

A unified formation,
Heading towards
Their destination

Bound together
One and all
Whether
Close
Or, rather

Afar

Alas, their
Connection lasts
Through an affiliation,

An unseen web

Of great prostration
To that which is unseen
Yet can be felt
So definitely

A harmony felt
In flight, yes,
And
Everywhere else

A connection true
As
Their collective sense
Of direction

Blew

Away in the wind
Wings outstretched in kind

Tips almost touch
In midair
What a fantastical affair

A flight
Without fanfare
Only ever that which is there

The one, two, three,
Balancing themselves
As they fly through the air
