Forests

leaves press colour

roots bloom memory

seeds learning through play

~

glowing shades

bleed the breeze

growth, spiral, decay

~

true love’s beauty

promises heartache

courage lights our way

~

forests paths cross

smile, see me

water lines flow

hug, kiss me

~

I’m learning not to camouflage

all these feelings

I have for you

~

“The Big Cloud” by John Ashbery | Poetically Versed

~

I once heard

all art

is a reaction

~

creative stimuli

reflecting

refracting

absorbing

ideas

possibilities

emotional perceptions

~

this national poetry month

each poem

was once a comment

my artistic expression

within our wordpress community

~

thank you everyone

for shining

radiating

your exceptional creativity

The Great Depression

born in uncertainty

~

a phenomenon

giving rise to fascism

destruction

a second world war

~

the despair felt

by many

never left

throughout their life

~

those years

left a mark

taking generations

to live down

~

I’m listening dad

I’m starting to understand

~

The Great Depression

Finding Peace

when his wife died

my grandpa was fifty three

~

she left twelve children

ages five to twenty two

~

sorrow, sadness

engulfed their hearts

~

their love

shouldered long years

~

restless anxiety

transitioned

to calm peace

~

grandpa told my mom

I have an appointment

with jesus

at six o’clock in the morning

~

he told his daughter

I’m with the lord

~

two months later

he died peacefully

at eighty nine

~
