Without warning

61242607 - young plant in the morning light on nature background

Without warning,
a story,
colorful and fragrant,
scrambles toward the
clarity of the sun.

The story, merely
a seed planted from
memories of moments
buried deep in
the obscurity of time,
suddenly pushes upward –
fertilized and nourished
from the warmness of the present.

A story easily
develops from roots
maturing sturdy and secure
in their rebirth
from the forgotten seed.

Oh, Bonita!

Calling our professor by her first name, well, it was just not right.
Sure, we all knew she was never going to be a friend but only a fright.

She drilled us with nouns, adjectives, verbs, and a preposition or two;
Over and over and over again until parts of speech were all could spew.

Despite our fear and our loathing for the subject matter at hand,
we nevertheless learned all the content she had for us planned.

So, thank you Professor Bonita for all that you taught us.
Even after all we endured we know that grammar smarts are A+!

No Snow Angels

muddy_footprints_zps66e3cb50

Deep in the empty pine forest
of the valley of the Chattahoochee
well below the Mason Dixon

no
snow flurries
snow flakes
fall.

Rather,
the crystal droplets
beginning high in the clouds
warm upon descent
and end in puddles.

No
snow angels –
only muddy treads
mark my
journey on this planet.

TMI

A world overburdened with information
Embellished, fake – even false
To empower self with our own reality
Is the challenge

Early Onset

walking

Walking along
She remembers
A report
She read
Sometime

In the past

Walking slowly
As reported
Can mean the
Onset of the absence of mind

Looking ahead
She speeds up her transportation
Almost skipping
Wanting no one to consider
She only sees the past in her mind

It’s Showtime!

curtain

Worry
Steals the bright light
that resides within

Dim the gray veil,
Open the brocade curtain,
Deliver your spontaneous lines of life
