Monday WRites 178


HIDDEN IN A CLOUD
A sky, holding all the wisdom of worlds
Beneath, accompanies me on my walk.
I walk, clouds glide, in harmony furled;
From here to yesterday and back, stretched
Like elastic bands, all the wisdom of worlds.
Sneaky thoughts morph in ghostlike formations,
What is there for clouds to do, in dream-world?
In silent boo oo notes, harmonize, to rain or not;
Maybe hide their divine messengers, whirled
Who trumpet with accord of their masters bidding,
Up there in the azure, all the wisdom of worlds.

Monday WRites 177


[for today's mosaic I used some of my 2011 photos; taken on an outing with the book club I was reading with then]
SEA TURTLE
The waters contained in ocean we cross,
Mindful of our smallness in this vast expanse,
Equilibrium is the name of today's boss,
Gravity is a sister who loves her brother,
As stability dances in ocean we cross.
A journey of wonder is embroidered in trust,
Our hope is for safety to the island across,
Words are spoken as audible buntings,
Suddenly a wave brings an identity toss.
A sea turtle swimming still not fully grown,
Small wonder contained in ocean we cross.

CORNUCOPIA
A spell of night rain, pooling,
An abundance of memories.
Vast as this night's passing,
Inky black sky holds her charm,
Like story of oceans, pooling.
To cornucopia, stuff sweet excesses.
Never leave to river's carrying.
Steadfast, hoard your days of past
Contentment, and guard unyielding
In such mystique as night's shadows.
Revel a spell of night rain, pooling.

SO NOW
So now; it has come to this.
A waltz of days,
All the feelings, all the passion, all the yearning,
A crumbled toss into inert melody,
With fragrance still longing for
Lingering beauty of years,
Plucked in courtship,
Fossilized in what was,
No more thought to what will be.
So now, it's all the memories, beauty can fathom.

Monday WRites 176


[I shape filtered one of my 2012 Maracas beach photo for today's post]

FEET BARE
Sun rays tickling straw hat, feet bare in the sand
Wrap wishes in ocean song, send to horizons all.
Down by the sea, where drift woods sail on a wand,
Magic of wonder is only a vast canvas of rhythms.
Mermaids flip beneath, jealous of feet bare in the sand.
Bucket after bucket castles rise, then yield to the waves.
Day dream after daydream walk the course, hand in hand.
A swell of inbreath salty, and sweet as carefree footsteps,
Press stenciled imprints, temporary as a breeze o'er the land.
Hush, noise of busy days, listen wild heart to wandering tides.
And, just follow the meanderings, of feet bare in the sand.
