Laughter: Poem


Laughter
An explosion
releasing me from trappings
A manifest drum call for
cheer and celebration

Chuckle
Tongue-in-cheek humor
Caressing secrets
hidden in my cellar
They age with time

Guffaw
Showcasing glee
unapologetic, unreserved
Splashing joy 
Wholesomeness packaged
 
Giggles
Sweet nectar
Soft, endearing
An appreciation of 
life's smaller moments

Chortle
Thundering joy
commands attention 
Addictive calls for the
collective to join in

Grin
Thinly veiled treat
Display of your delight
Inviting others in 

Smile
Succulent melody
Acquaints strangers
Silver thread
Mirroring the soul's shine

An old poem from the reserves. Hope you're blessed with many a reason to smile 🙂

Wish granted: Poem

You’ve stilled my fleeting gaze

Pinned my wandering thoughts

Focused my temporal interest

Ice walls melted into a puddle

Stone gates crumbled into ash

My pillars now arch- curious

My sealed lips slightly curved

Cracks in the windows of my intellect

Logic kneeling with humility

The door of my emotions

given in to the relentless knocks

The trees in my front yard

bring to me songs of your persistence

I can respect a spirited fighter

Rake your wild thoughts

Will for one dream,

Ask what you wish for,

But, careful-

For it will be granted.

Simply splendid: Poem

coffee-983955_640.jpg

Serenaded by sunset
the wind whistles our song
trees wink, loyal comrades
as leaves peek into
our window panes

The air is fresh
good intentions flow
as do coffee cups
warmth

Familiar tapestries
hug the wall
eyes painting old patterns
in the air
comfort

Naught said, all known
Sing-song melodies
strummed soundlessly
silence

Our watches slow down
to watch us
while our evenings away
