Spring Fever and the Poem a Day Challenge
A wee bit of green pushing through
Well, dear readers, I have to admit that I have had an acute case of spring fever over the past month. Just have not been able to get out of my own way, but, the good news is...I am over it!
The medicine I used to snap me back into writing mode is the Poem a Day Challenge - Thank you Robert Lee Brewer! I am so excited to be crafting poems each day that I feel once again the creative juices flowing.
So...Happy, happy Spring! Here are a few new poems to start off April with...enjoy!
the beginning was difficult
water on cement
nothing getting through
panic – I begin again
the middle seemed sufficient
a spark to kindling
something was happening
caution – I continue onward
the end made my day
a garden in full-bloom
thoughts begin connecting
joy – I end class

Bird song, my whistle -
The garden, my carriage -
Spring sun - all the energy I need
to travel into the land of the bards
Like a fairy, I fly high into Imagination,
landing in Possibility, just a breath away from Doubt
but safe in the Valley of Hope. I
meander along Love's babbling brook -
saunter over the sidewalks of Wonder and Awe,
until I find a bench overlooking the Land of Muse
where I sit, meditating the dreams of a poet's heart.
Family history often comes
in the snippets found by purest accident.
Born at sea was what auntie's birth certificate read,
but, I had never know the story
that, now, was too late to learn -
something in my writer's mind won't let it go, though -
During the upsweep of wave,
during the rock and roll of la mare,
the natal journey begins - a journey within a journey!
Then, somewhere just off shore,
the crescendo of wind, water and woman,
meet to expel a child, who will forevermore
be a daughter of the Neptune,
not of Mother Earth.
