normal

normal

it’s a distant memory now, how it was back then
when winning was all that mattered; that, and being right
we called it normal; normal? it was anything but that,
the whole world was divided, oh I remember when
the walls between us widened, fueled by fear and hate,
opinions were closely guarded, so as not to offend
the tender ears of faithless fools and blind-eyed sycophants,
with loyalties divided, we lost family and friends
who’d have thought a virus would make us see the light
we called it normal; normal? it was anything but that
it took a tragedy for our broken hearts to mend

Magic 11 poem – my variation on the Magic 9 poem, a 9-line poem that doesn’t have any rules as far as meter or subject matter–just a rhyme scheme: abacadaba. Enter the Magic 11 abracadabra poem with the r’s intact, placeholders for a refrain. Rhyme scheme: abRacadabRa. (R for the refrain).


May Day 31

sweet verbena

though
they burst
in clusters
each verbena
blossom is perfection in miniature

May Day 30

fair
lily
kiss of fire
flashing crimson
in solitary reverie she blooms

A study on the symbolism of lilies, comfort for those who may be grieving…as the flowers most often associated with funerals, lilies symbolize that the soul of the departed has received restored innocence after death.


May Day 29

if
ever
I forget
why I am here
the earth reminds me whispering… “just be”
