Hope drops in to stay
Intemperate visitor
Rainy August day

 

Morning mockingbird
Staying long past his welcome
Shrill songs mimic hope

Bright Lady Lyra
Music among the starlight
Painted in the sky

 

Male painted bunting
Vivid Crayola dreamer
Sings for a lady

 

Lady Liberty
Welcomes a befuddled world
Painted by terror
Copper and steel stand ever
Hopeful in New York Harbor

Fate dripping chocolate dreams
Baby’s first ice cream

Toddler smiles holding
Melting, dripping ice cream cone
Fate makes sticky hands

Pink summer lilies
Liberty Garden holding
Seashells on a stem

Pinking sheers chomping
Brown corduroy revealing
Shell of winter’s coat

Irate yellow moth struggles
Amused spider waits

Ocean of silence
Undertow pulling secrets
Away from the shore

Deep brown eyes ready
No darkness in her soul, just
Alert and loyal

Morning ritual
Yawning deep in the cupboard
Gurgle, sputter, perk
No cream, no sugar, just black
Bitter darkness in my cup

La Jolla, Ca

Sea lion plays in
Foamy Pacific color
Sun’s warmth on her back

 

Black whiskered swimmer
Riding current’s colors to
Warmth of rocky shore

Glorious spring clouds
What miracle in the sky
That can save such joy?

Save the springtime sky
Pink evening miracle
For wintertime dreams

Saving falling stars
Hands held out to catch delight
Futile miracle

Karma, my dear, will
Circle ’round, excite the moon
Tides will surely rise

 

Excited fledgling
Perched on the edge of the nest
Awaiting karma
