Essence #29

cooing dove, grey morning
perched above in mourning

Day 29’s Essence for Jane Dougherty’s Daily Essence Poem Challenge. You guessed it! Another dreary day in the mid-Atlantic, Blue Ridge Mountain valley. I love the sound of morning doves in the grey.


Essence #28

restless sleep, pale moonlight
no dreams to keep…long night

Essence #28 for Jane Dougherty’s Daily Essence Poem Challenge. When I can’t sleep, I wander outside to be with the moon and the stars and the lovely silence of the night while the rest of the world sleeps. It can make for a very long night, but sometimes…I write. 🙂


Essence #27

snow gets old, a bummer…
we’ll miss cold come summer

Day 27 for Jane Dougherty’s Daily Essence Poem Challenge. As much as I complain about the cold, I am well aware that once mid-summer arrives I will be begging for relief from the heat! We are never happy. 🙂


Essence #26

shadows long, sun shaded,
bird song serenaded

A beautiful, crisp, spring day; birds all a-twitter; no snow in the forecast…today’s Essence #26 for Jane Dougherty’s Daily Essence Poem Challenge.


Essence #25

dawn’s first blush, muted hues,
ice-kissed hush, sunlit blues

Day 25 for Jane Dougherty’s Daily Essence Poem Challenge. Not the storm of the century predicted, but lovely in the afterglow.
