renga #33 ~ a renga

minutes make magic
melding my memories
melted in moonlight


***

written in response to

tesseract unfurls
new seeds of infinity
merge in a moment
seconds conceived so quickly
multiply into minutes

Ripples ~ This renga is a collaborative  writing effort of David of The Skeptic’s Kaddish and me of Mindfills. David’s words, completing the tanka, are in italics and in bold. What started with this haiku is now a renga of 33 verses 🙂  You can read all about our journey  here and you can read the rest of the renga here ☺️.
Lots of love and gratitude to you all for reading and your kind words of appreciation. 🙏

heaven in her eyes ~ free verse

image ~ Warren Wong

She took off one day
for reasons unknown
and I couldn’t stop her flight mid-air
or make her want to stay
if only to catch the sunrise
seeping into our sheets
or the warm waft of coffee
one mug for her and me
I’d give up forever
like they say in that song
just to see
for one last time
my heaven in her eyes

ripples#32 ~ a renga

tesseract unfurls
new seeds of infinity
merge in a moment
seconds conceived so quickly
multiply into minutes

Written in response to

holding on to earth
daffodils reach for the sky
stretching all that’s real
twisting tesseract appears
folding nature on itself

you and I ~ a trimeric

look into my eyes 
turn the pages of my mind
watch the words tessellate
you and I

turn the pages of my mind
celebrate the poetry
rhyming our lives

watch the words tessellate
sync our worlds in song
Oh the lyrics feel just right

you and I
keep making up stories
in each other's eyes

holding on to earth
daffodils reach for the sky
stretching all that’s real
twisting tesseract appears
folding nature on itself

Written in response to

preserving prayers
paradise plants seeds of hope
in every dew drop
daffodils drawing diet
from damp delectable dirt

remains ~ candlelight

when winter whispers
endings of summer
when lush leaves turn brown
my dreams, they drown
my hopes, they hush
can’t feel much
and yet
withered
wasted
I
search
my
soul
to
know
why
beyond the end, love remains

left ~ a quadrille

I left the right to wrong
swerved by a surge of sentiment
or the caprice of insanity perhaps
when just for a mote of a moment
whites and blacks smudged
boundaries and barriers
I found myself
fallen but free
to err
to be human

dVerse’s Mish hosts the quadrille ~ a poem of 44 words using the word ‘smudge’

A funny thing happened today.  Words on my screen said ” live the life you love”. They made their way, in a dizzy dyslexic dance, into my brain as ” live the lie you love” … and well, changed my world view and inspired this quadrille 😃
