Once more

She was swimming

in a sea of languages

words crashed over her

in waves

yet she couldn’t understand them

she only spoke in one tongue

These expressions were foreign to her

they swirled around her deafeningly

She just wanted them to stop, to shut up

for more than just a fleeting moment

so that she could her herself think

This surging, swelling tide of Words

rolled over her, leaving her struggling

for breath

and to remain afloat

Just as she was sure she would be swept away

and pulled under

There was a lull

and she could hear his voice on the wind,

softly singing “You are My Sunshine”

and she found the strength

to swim back to shore

once more

Magic in the Square – fun with rhyming

I know you won’t believe me… but it is true, I swear

just last evening I saw a bear, dancing in Times Square

Not a human in costume with an amazing artistic flair

but an actual, living, breathing, dancing brown bear

Not chained and abused like at a circus or a fair

but a free and happy creature dancing without care

as I watched in fascination the solo act became a pair

they danced with passion, with elegance and a certain savoir-fare

when they ended with the tango there was magic in the air

the night was truly perfect, I only wish that you were there

Mooning

The full moon peeped through partial clouds

desperately trying to get a look at the couple below

wanting to bask in their light as they bask in the moon’s light

for the moon is no fool and she knows true love when she sees it

Holding on to

One dream one

Promise to be

Exempt from despair

i bite my thumb at me

oh woe is the state of me

am I beyond repair?

if’t be true mine heart lies at the city centre

wherefore doth it not get along with its neighbor brain

which dwells near by in northern suburb?

thoughts after all bringeth forth emotion

and though synapse art wearied and has’t suffered damage

they doth still transit thither

***I asketh thee, please forgive mine feeble attempts at sounding “Shakespearean” and the resulting butchery.

barbed

 

I cannot grasp

the ease at which

barbed fallacies fall

from your crimson lips

only to plunge deftly

into my still beating heart

adieu to you and you and you…

She had come to a decision

It was time for a fresh start

With only promise in her heart

she bid farewell to them all

in celebration of herself

fallen

pumpkin

poplar leaf

it drifts lazily

landing beneath the tree

fallen

scarlet

maple leaf

it glides elegantly

to the forest floor

fallen

marigold

hickory leaf

it floats gracefully

to rest with me

fallen
