Repurposed Life

A weathered greenhouse, built to shield, protect young specimens within, from wintry wind, To magnify and golden rays project, Injuring seedlings from the seasons’ clime. Hardy pots reside outside, aligned along the curb, or sheltered from the fray, Beneath the wooden, weathered, a-framed splines, Broad streaks of silver, aging shades of gray. Ironically these planks […]

Here Comes The Moon

On the eve of The Masterwork Chorus’ “Masterwork Mania”(a fundraiser program of Beatles music), I am sitting in a hospital room, knowing that I won’t be joining my fellow choristers, this time around. A sudden onset of diverticulitis has temporarily derailed me. A consolation is that my room on the 10th floor has a spectacular […]

Traveler

Traversing over pebbled, stick-strewn treads, While on my daily walk, out in the wild, I came to where the road diverged ahead And mused which way; then paused, in awe, beguiled. You’d think a was a young ‘un, just a child entranced by stories told of wise old trees, My visions, dreams and fantasies took […]

Noodling

A single strand, extruded long and wound, Entwining round, inextricably bound, Enmeshed among the others that surround, Becoming nested noodle bowl, undrowned. Weekly Photo Challenge: Rounded</

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 […]
