Look what ~ a free verse

Look what the past dragged in
Grains of truth wait to be winnowed
Anger grumbles in unvoiced angst
Mounds of regret sulk forgotten
Apologies lie locked in vaults of silence
Nostalgia strokes half a wound
Hesitant footsteps shuffle ashamed
When blue skies and sunrays
unfurl a picnic day
We draw the blinds and squander it away

Mindfills for Reena’s exploration challenge, Fandango’s FOWC – apology

stars ~ free verse

stars spinning
in circles,
fireworks in the sky,
an impromptu announcement
booming through the universe
to awaken you
with a spritz of magic
to touch your soul
with sparks of beginnings
to take you by the hand
and lead you in your dreams
to the infinity you are

stars ~ a haiku series

stars zoom across sky
shooting for cosmic movie
~ other side of town

black night to my square
sign flashing on things to do
~ hold on to your breath

Saturday morning
dream-filled eyes not open yet
~ dewdrops for breakfast

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
