A Hush (What a great way to start the morning!) September 21, 2006

A hush

Life suspended

Gaze upon sweet music

Heart stops, mind softens, soul embraced

in song

Last Evenings of Late Summer

dusk paints
the evening air
gray, accentuating
the sad smiles of August waning
in sobs.

Leaves on the Run August 20, 2006

Leaves on the Run

In unison
on weathered vines,
leaves, like children marching,
heads turned to sun,
vibrant green smiles
in autumn’s golden sea.

Erect, lively
like shimmering
breezes tossed by whirlwind
storms of bleak change
in portentous
August declarations.

At Play July 23, 2006

Doe & Fawns

Soft light sun warms fawns at play in the morn.

Watchfully, lovingly, carefully

Doe mother, nose nudging, gives guidance.

Leads her fawns to fruit on earth’s green floor.

Hungrily, playfully, happily

They enjoy a bounty of apples.

Said fruit is mine I share with sheer joy,

Giddily, blissfully, thoroughly.

Such visits speak warmly and soulful.

Colors Blush (Another Beautiful Morning)…a Septet Poem July 20, 2006

Filed under: My Photos,Poetry — jojanoski @ 9:16 am

Another Beautiful Morning

 

 

 

This poem is a septet–a seven-line poem with the following number of syllables per line, no rhyme. 3, 5, 7, 9,7, 5, 3.

 

Colors blush.
Breathless pink rushing
past bashful blue to morning.
Dangling in space, waiting for the sun
to warm their pure desires
for simple beauty
just one day.

Sunday Ponderings… July 16, 2006

Sea of Lilies

 

Sunny

Inclinations

Lilies ethereal

My heart yearns to follow their gaze

for now.

Seeing the Color

 

INSPIRED

 

Black, White
Monotonous
Life drags its gray-toned cape
Scratching rocky ground, to nowhere
And back.

Sunburst
Lights blazing trail
Rainbow colors brimming
Splashing red orange happiness
Afar.
