LOVELINESS (for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #54-Detail)

Petals pool on the ground Time is passing by Flowers droop, one last bow But the dragonfly wings glisten And the sunfish flit in the pond The ugly duckling is becoming a swan Fireflies light the summer nights And tomorrow, dew will bathe the dawning skies. Loveliness happens Even as flowers die.   Last week,Continue reading “LOVELINESS (for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #54-Detail)”

THE PROOF I WANT

Show me your love not with a crown of roses or a bowl of carnations which soon become food for worms once their fragrance dies. Neither give me promises of galaxies and garnets and diamonds. I am no queen and have no use for such treasures that I would have to check in at death’sContinue reading “THE PROOF I WANT”

EverContinue reading “ODE TO INNOCENCE”

I was curious to know if even a half-decent chapbook would come out of my efforts. Alas! OtherContinue reading “WANING SUMMER”
