What Lies Beneath 

“What Lies Beneath” digital art by Kat Myrman 2017

It’s what lies beneath,
tangled roots thrusting downward,
synapses surging,
that rouses trees to greening,
born of fire in Gaia’s heart.

Barefoot – NaPoWriMo 2017 #8

grass between my toes,
breeze softly tossing my hair,
wispy clouds, blue sky,
sometimes I need reminding
where I’m from and who I am

Daily Grind – A Silly Tanka

Silly Tanka (5/7/5/7/7)

Oatmeal, strawberries,
earl grey latte, crushed ice…
my daily grind, but…
I can be spontaneous
oatmeal, no strawberries…see?!

Good Talk


Keeping this morning’s theme going, a Tanka poem for my poetry form of the day.

we call it prayer,
spiritual conversations,
“good talks” with our god
where we do all the talking
and god’s supposed to listen

The Gloaming


The Gloaming

luminous and full
fair Luna owns the night sky
seducing the sea
who swoons to do her bidding,
kissing the shore with his tears
