Hide and seek
the seasons play –
one day it’s Winter
and the next, Spring comes to stay.
Swaying with the caressing breeze
overnight, the trees bloom.
All that was brown and bare
is now in a lush green costume.
The buds, blushing in morning dew,
look like a child’s cheek red with joy.
Exquisitely they bloom before dusk
and adulthood they seem to enjoy.
Tell me, could it be magic –
all this swift change of scene?
Is there someone with a wand
veiled behind the sky, the big screen?
This is my entry for Carry On Tuesday – Prompt #202 – Could it be magic?
At the break of dawn,
as the full moon steps aside,
yesterday’s faltering emotions die.
And at the touch of the first rays of sun,
new hopes spring where there was once none.
This is my entry for 3WW CCLXXXIII – falter, emotion, touch.
Lightning strikes; thunders roar.
A storm in the making, inside and out.
Does she dance to the happy tunes?
Or let her distressed heart feel the gloom?
Droplets grace her cheeks, tears or rain?
Only she knows whether she chose joy or pain,
until a sweet smile appears and her face glows –
her mind’s made up, standing at the crossroads.
To let peace take her side; to let go of the storm inside
And to embrace beauty, with arms wide.
This is my entry for Carry On Tuesday, Prompt #166 – Standing at the crossroads
A blank white canvas
turns into a work of art
with footprints of love.
Snow covered road
This is my entry for The Thursday Think Tank # 82 – The Road
Memories of you invade my night.
I smile and sob as I reminisce the past.
Stars across the sky I use to write,
Stories of us, so forever they last.
You and I, the tale starts.
Of our love, grief and joy there are parts.
Undo I wish to do of your death to give hope to lovers’ hearts.
This is my entry for One Single Impression: Prompt 172 – Miss.
