Watercolors – Poem of the Month – March 2021

Watercolors

Silver-grey of early evening sky
shines its light on my still waters
waking me from a reverie
My sparkling diamonds dance
on gently rolling ripples
as buoyant ducks bounce
 
Twilight swathes me
in its purple cloth
and I wear amethyst gems
Silhouetted birds in black
fly low returning to their nests
as stillness falls in silence
 
The night brings an indigo blanket
adorned with sequined stars
Reflecting on my mirrored surface
Gently I rock to sleep
in the glow of a silvery moon
rising slowly in the darkness

Blue Moon – A Haibun

Blue Moon

In late September we are still in daylight savings time but since the equinox, the earlier darkness has switched up the night sky.  Now the moon is brightly lit shortly after sunset but is still hung so low you could almost reach up to touch it.

The sun too has moved its place of descent and paints the evening elsewhere on the canvas in its in brilliant pink and golden hues. 

Nature is slowly nudging us towards the seasonal changes and many go willingly forwards, accepting and thankful.  Whereas I mourn long summer days where I could could live forever.

Staring at the moon
Heart-heavy and moody-blue
Another ending

Look Up There – A Quadrille

Look Up There

Orion straddles the sky
His belt twinkling
Lighting the way
Stars sprinkling
 
A cheesy moon
at the halfway mark
The shadow of his smile
visible in the dark
 
Match made in heaven
A lover’s tryst
Moon and stars shine
As the earth is kissed

De Jackson, aka Whimsy Gizmo, is hosting
Monday Quadrille at D'Verse Poets.  Tonight
he has prompted us with "Sky"

A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words
excluding the title.

This is a reworked poem of mine from several
years ago that fitted this category.

Heart Medicine

Heart Medicine

The stillness of night
Soothing and gentle
Erasing the sharpness
of scathing words
Still ringing
in burning ears
Moonlight caressing
a bruised heart
While a gentle 
salty tide bathes
open wounds 
washing away
hurt feelings
A fool’s fool
Gullible and naive 
Believing, hoping
for a different outcome
that never comes
Once more
walking off the pain 
of disappointment
in search of serenity
