March Pi-Archimedes #23

bright dawn

it is so
good
to see blue skies
sunshine
to hear the birds singing
save clouds, the tempest’s fury, for a rainy day

Vernal Equinox – Tanka Tuesday

vernal equinox

primordial ooze
swells with new life, emerging
seed to root to shoot
to bloom, serenaded by
bird trills and honey bee hums

a rose is…

a rose is…

she’s of a certain
age, you know, a
real beauty in
her prime but
clinging to her
withered gown
makes her look
old with fading
mane once
vibrant, sweet her
fragrance reeks of
musty death, they think
it’s time she gives
this ruse rest, the
reaper waits with
pruning shears, she’s
had her summer
in the sun, to yield
at long last, it’s for
the best, she’s of
a certain age you
know, clinging to
her faded gown but
she’s not finished,
being beautiful, not
yet, she’s not
finished, no, not yet

March Pi-Archimedes #7

winter burn

bright mornings like
this
beautiful blue, sunlit skies
deceive
notice how the birds keep
silent vigil on tree limbs amidst frigid air, breathless

February Poem #20

…to a potted plant

you don’t need a lot
a bit of soil, water, light
root-bound in a small clay pot
wondrous neophyte
thriving in my cubicle outright
