How Does Your Garden Grow?

 
Turning round from flight
From cold wintry blight,
We stay.
Colorful and bright
Rainbows raise out sight,
Display
Gardens growing right
Where there once was night
Today.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme “how does your garden grow?” and to dVerse Poetic Forms featuring the “lai”.

Limbo

 
Early every day
Turn my mind away
From sin.
When I’m lost, astray,
Let me let you stay
Within.
Now I choose and may
Your desires display,
Begin.

Linked to dVerse Poetics where M (grapeling) is hosting with the these “limbo”. It is also an example of the “lai” poetry form featured at dVerse this month.

The lai poetry form is simple. The required rhyme and syllable counts flow under various meters.

Lai

 
Secrecy at night
Showing dark for light
Of day.
Hold me hoping tight.
Tilt me toward the right
Of way.
What I’m left of sight
Turn disturbing fright
To play.

Footsteps

Footsteps touch the sand.
Toes and bare feet land
That way.
Sun makes its strong stand
Like it’s all been planned
With play.
Nothing real is bland.
All with light gets tanned
Today.
