Poppies

Poppies all have lost their bloom.
Summer heat is here.
With such brightness even gloom
Is smiling through its fear.

Advice

Don’t get tangled up in stuff
While dreams go their ways.
Giving all you have’s enough
To lighten shadowed days.

Say What You See

What they would say is “Go away.
Leave our young in peace.
But should you dare, well, we’re prepared
To treat like bad geese.”

Photos: “Swans Looking at Me”, above, “Circles of Color Amid Fairy Green”, below linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme “say what you see”. The captions of the photos are me saying what I see in the photos and the poem imagines what I think those swans are saying to me.

Being Positive Through Negation

It’s not something that I don’t know
Though what it is is hard to say.
It’s not something that words can show.
Wordiness is not its way.

It’s not that it is not not there.
I take a breath and let it be.
It’s not that I can point out where,
But everywhere it calls to me.

One-Liner Wednesday — Glue

Kindness is a kind of glue.


Linked to Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday and Debbie Roth’s Forgiving Fridays since kindness presumes some forgiveness.

Imaginary Friend

My imaginary friend knows where I am. I’m on a quest to find that idea that will turn life right-side up again. It could be a fool’s errand, but I have nothing else to do. So if you’re looking for me, you might as well stop. I don’t have the answer–yet. Find the answer and offer to share it with whomever wants to know. Then, perhaps, I will find you.
