January 6th-12th, 2014

Old bones require sun 


January 7th, 2014
Two globes of gelato~icy bliss to savor slowly
one Dark Raspberry Chocolate~one Lemon Cookie
nestled in a bowl ~ surrounded by crisp tinned peaches
clouds of whipped cream form a delectable white mountain
two angel winged wafers wave cheerfully from the summit
begging to be nibbled~extracting a wing I relish each bite
grateful for this taste of summer on a brisk winter day

Gentle current
mermaid's hair
sways gracefully


January 9th, 2014
Thick dimpled pewter drapes
curious silver eye peers out briefly
then the curtain twitches closed again
nosey neighbor in the sky~winter sun

Remembering Papa
Gone too long
Papa and his girls
what magic tales he told
Yet he lives on in us
my little sister and I
his creativity the gift we share
Separated by years and miles
he is the thread 
that connects us both
Happy Birthday, Papa
our fond memories of you
even death cannot erase


January 11th, 2014
Black phantoms race across the evening sky
dragging tattered cloaks~swirling and churning
harbingers of the approaching promised storm 
they merge~melting into one dark ominous mass
swallowing light~dense darkness falls~not a sliver of silver
we wonder~will they bring rain~or were they merely bragging?


January 12th, 2014
Seven for Sunday Trio
No rain for us~sprinkles fizzled out
Pink tutus frolic~frilly sunset clouds dance
Garden looks dejected~watering must start today
