Revealing What Can’t Be Told

Amazing what this warm day brings.
The beautiful has its allure,
Reveals what can’t be told, and sings:
Obsession–longing for what’s pure.


Text: Linked to dVerse Poetics. Lillian is hosting with the theme of picking product names and using them differently in the poem. I picked the “perfumes” category.

The Allure of Plants Is Everywhere

Indoor Plants

In spite of everything were they
Delighted I stayed home today?
I watered every one and I’ll
Drift into daydreams with a smile.

News: My poem “Pan’s Pipe” won the Wilda Morris’s Poetry Challenge for February. Here are the rules for entering this monthly contest.

Don’t Bump Me in the Night

What’s spooky in November
Fireworks my fear.
Bumps and groans
And nighttime moans
Entertain my ears.

Spooky Plants

Broken Pots Are Also Good

The pots are broken, split and still
They serve as pots for plants that will
Use bits of soil, and we don’t mind,
Unwrap their love with what they find.
