Come from Away

Escape intended from the ordinary din, From endless lines aligning “Great White Way”, We duck inside, and escalate within To eighth floor lounge, no more or less, we strayed. A bite to eat, a sip of wine perchance, A strategy to while away the time, Our curtain was at three, no time to dance But […]

Rain

Rain, Sitting here inside, Waiting for the skies to clear, Hoping our vacation isn’t smeared, And yet I see only Rain, Pouring down in sheets upon this sleepy calm lagoon, It’s time has come to drench this lovely cove with cleansing droplets; Rain, I’ll wait it out, Serenely know this pause, Precisely why I came, […]

Textured Layers

While gliding on the resort launch on our way to the Magic Kingdom, my eye was initially drawn to the brilliant, white puffy clouds hovering against a perfect sky-blue sky, as the monorail zoomed across the spanse. I snapped this Photo. It wasn’t until hours later, when I scanned my images, that I realized I’d […]

Freeze-frame

I remember when I was a girl of five, And pretty, colored skirts were joyous things, We’d twirl upon our coffee-table stage, With shrieks and soaring screams, for we had wings. I hadn’t thought on that for many years, Until one summer day, we stood to wait at Main Street Station, for the Disney train […]

Blurred Lines

Structure straight and perfectly aligning, A thousand stamens reaching for the sun, Each radiation delicate reminding We’re more than just ourselves, we are as one. From far perspective, branches tipped with pompons, Beckon to us: come survey our blooms, ‘Til closer in we scan the broad-leafed palm fronds, To spy their tender details, through my […]

White Egret

Amid the hustle and bustle of exiting the Magic Kingdom, we’d decided to forego the monorail that would whisk us back to The Polynesian Resort, for a balmy ride aboard the launch, which had just arrived at the dock. As we made haste to catch the launch, I was suddenly distracted by this beautiful, unhurried creature […]

Memories in the Mist

I know I’ll never see this tree again, So on this fog-swept morning I arise to venture forth, despite the mist of rain and soft, escaping tears that wet my eyes. For decades, summer songs revitalized, And friends, both old and new, were gayly met, We came with notes, some nearly memorized, To blend in […]

Matryoshka Mélange

As I peered into the display at The Russian Tea Room, I wondered how long it might have taken someone to lovingly and carefully arrange the exquisite Matryoshka (nested dolls) and Russian eggs (a la Fabergé); and whether I was more impressed by the unique beauty of each piece of handcrafted art or by the […]

Al Fresco Dining

Imagined glimpse of movement I did spy, Yet when I lean my head to catch the view he flits away, I cannot verify that he was there at all, a breeze that blew. But patience is its own reward, it’s true, For not a moment later there he stood, To gather in his bill more […]

Irrepressible

“I’m growing stronger than you know,” said she, “You’re not,” said he, “and I know what is best.” “I’m ready to break wildly free,” said she, “I see, but you must wait, your patience test.” “I’m eager to embrace my destiny,” He countered, “You’re a wee one, let it rest.” “My path leads skyward, bathed in […]

Face in the Window

Peering out, he sees me stride away, He doesn’t cry or whimper, merely stares, wide-eyed and droopy-eared, he bids me stay without a word, he knows that I’m aware. Alas, I scurry off to market square, With tasks and shopping lists (suburban churn), He’ll have no concept of how long I’m there, Yet he’ll sit […]
