Slice of Life Curves



Life's curves turn us,
Sometimes swirl us
Sending us off plans-
Survival occurs 
As we seek serenity
In new paths 
Opening, unfolding
Within life's chaos-
Our curves we choose.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Life


Life


Plan a path,
A path forward,
Forward to dreams,
Dreams life interrupts,
Interrupts but deters not,
Not to end dreams,
Dreams plan a new path.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Surprise


Surprise

Strolling through the park I love
And have enjoyed so often
The lovely green of trees and shrubs
Cooling the rays of the searing sun,
I heard a meadowlark sing its tune
And looked up for its yellow hue
Instead I found an unnoticed view
A surprise of pleasant beauty:
The bountiful blooms of a lilac tree.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Catnap



Cats curl up
For hours each day
In weeds and plants
On laundry folded
(Your favorite pants)

Cats curl up
Ears alert; half asleep
Eyes half-closed; a power nap
Their favorite place to purr and gush
Is safely curled in master's lap

NaPoWriMo npm16 Sky


Sky

Clear blue sky
Frames majestic firs
Standing alert
Saluting the red, white, and blue
Snapping all to attention
Honoring our natural
Clear blue sky.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Blue Light


Blue Light

Morning's early rush,
a delight with blue bouquet
a student's fresh pick.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Enchanted Trees


Enchanted Trees

Stop to imagine
Crooked branches as cottages
Twisted trunks as highways
Criss-crossing roots as paths
Fallen petals as magic
Tossed by fairies 
Frolicking from their cottage in the leaves
Traversing bark highways
Crossing in around and under roots
Laughing and dancing with their enchanted trees.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Wildfire


Wildfire

Seething scorching flames
raced over forests for miles
blackening all pines.

Spring rains nourish soils
wildflowers blossom amid
burned relics of fire.

NaPoWriMo npm16 Night Storm



Night Storm


Sleep soundly at night
while the unknown storm rages;
morning finds mayhem;
pink cherry blossoms mangled:
reveals night’s chaos on lawn.
