this is why

this is why

hummingbirds return
to gather
sweet nips of nectar

bare wintered tree limbs
are greening
soon the leaves will pop

ever faithful dawn
rising sun
she quells the dark night

it is possible
if you can dream it

i have all i need
it’s enough
to love and be loved


Na/GloPoWriMo2022 Day 18 Prompt: write your own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.

For today’s poems a series of Kelly Lunes - three lines each with the syllable pattern: 5-3-5.

stop and smell the roses

“stop and smell the roses”

stop trying to please
and take some time for you to
smell spring’s sweetness in
the moments after the rain
roses misted, dressed in red


NaPoWriMo2022 -Day 6 Prompt: write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first letters of each line, I’d like you to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line.

To challenge myself even more, this poem was created using Original Magnetic Poetry online in the format of a Tanka 😊


morning has broken


the night lingering
into day…no
consolation when
death comes a-calling


Magnetic Poetry - Poet’s Kit
2022 has been the year of the reaper in our little menagerie. First to fall, our sweet 18-1/2 year old diva kitty, Casey, on January 14th and next to succumb, was our 8-1/2 year old hunk-o-love, big boy Maxwell on February 22nd. The gray sky and rain are cooperating oh too well with the drama of it all. I’m a bit of a mess, especially around mealtime. Two less bowls to fill…:( Hug your fur kids, your kid kids, your grandkids, big kids, little kids…or find a tree and hug that. You never know…you just never know…RIP my lovelies…



the world has a story
to tell…one of wonder,
of dark and light, wild
with adventure and gentle remembering
but in truth, it is only a mirror
and if you are quiet she will
whisper the answers you seek
from inside your heart

Magnetic Poetry Monday – 26 October 2020

I see red when I hear
their slow sad voices repeating
the lies of a fool who
secretly hates them;
their hearts poisoned by darkness.
It is of no use trying to
save them for they are long
gone…I must look away, smile,
and melt into blue.
