THE WATCHMAN

Who watches the watchman
when the night is deep
in silence
in solitude
what thoughts does he keep

who lights his light
when its flame dies
who guides his path
riddled with lies

will he see that night
find its day
or to dawnless darkness
let the night stray

who watches the watchman
when the world is asleep
who watches the watchman
alone when the night is deep?

UNDER THE FALLING SNOW (for WPC: Off Season)

For this challenge, I am sharing some photos of students in between classes. The pictures were taken in December. I was getting winter tired by then and did not have the spunk to post photos that had to do with snow. Considering that the temperatures hereabouts are already starting to sizzle, I thought that the OFF -SEASON theme gives me the perfect chance to share this little tidbits of student life. :-)

And last, here is something that does not belong to the group but I am including nonetheless just because it is out-of-season –

Shopping

though shopping never really goes off-season, or does it? :-)

Thanks for coming by.  Happy weekend.

SLENDER BLUE-EYED GRASS (for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Purple)

These  lovely little wildflowers grow in the meadows.  Though they are just a tad bigger than a dime and grow alongside taller grass, Slender Blue-eyed flowers are easy to spot because of their purplish color and elegant bearing.

VIVID CLEMATIS (for WPC: Vivid)

 

Clematis
Clematis
showy, grand
blooming, bopping, beckoning
calming the weary eyes
Beauty.

Beauty
real, timeless
mesmerizing, comforting, blessing
desire of every heart
Truth.

Clematis 5Nothing can be more vivid than a Clematis in full bloom.  The flowers that fill the plant from top to bottom are sure to attract attention.  When the Clematis in our front yard is in bloom, passersby do take notice. :-)

Thank you for dropping by. :-)

MID-SPRING IMPRESSIONS

 

LilacA cloud hangs above my head
– of lilac swaying in the breeze
I am not afraid of the rain
spraying petals   on my hair.

Thunder rolls from the woods to the fields
– of birds twittering in the trees
I am not afraid of the storm
tinkling like piano keys.

Tide pools around my feet
– of bluets glittering in an emerald sea
I am not afraid of the tide
sowing stars among the weeds.
