dancing magic

leaves turn and bend
a winter scheme

inside my heart

dancing magic
in the sky, and in the wind

nature’s purveyor
and plenitude
of love

weaved
with delicate hands

a gift
beyond the scope
of mind

where
it remains lost
and

is only found
when we realize
it’s been there all along

I would like to thank Barbara Leonhard, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for publishing my poem, Starburst Pattern. If you’ve not yet read it, you can find it here. Thank you.

daffodil dreams

from the tips of my fingers
to the tops of my toes

a flower sits
in repose

calling to me
dejected and forlorn

I compose

myself
and listen to the words whispered
forth

speaking to me of daffodil dreams
and peeks sanguine

in the distance
they seem

like a memory

of another time
when the love you brought to me

was something altogether different
than this fractured reverie

and… love… is seen. An Honorable Mention

Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic Prose, by Gabriela Marie Milton

As you may know, the the winners of the Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic Prose Poetry Contest were announced earlier this week. I would like to congratulate the winners, Virginia Mateias, Ingrid Wilson, Eric Daniel Clarke, D. Wallace Peach, and Timothy Price. If you’ve not had the opportunity to read their poems, I invite you to read them at, The Winners of The Poetry Contest Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic Prose. The poems are lovely.

I am humbled to have been named as an honorable mention in the contest, alongside Joni Caggiano, Cindy Georgakas, Karima Hoisan, and Carrie Yang. I admire all of these talented poets, and am, again, honored to be named among them. A BIG thank you to Gabriela Marie Milton for creating and hosting this lovely contest.

Here is the beginning of the poem I entered into the contest.

and… love… is seen.
and…
love….

is not the end
this story may commence
like petals on a flowers recompense

and…
as love breaks the moon in two
I’m reminded of you
tranquility among stormy seas
the key

you…
me….

I would be honored if you would visit Gabriela’s site, Short Prose, and read the rest of my poem, and the poems of the other honorable mentions. Thank you!
