#napowrimo15 #digipoetry Childhood Home


Childhood Home
Before the Parking Lot


Mud pies 'neath lilacs
Plant sweat peas with mom; reel in
pike, guided by dad.

#napowrimo15 #digipoetry Cherry Trees

Cherry Trees

Each spring they bloom pink,
living cotton candy puffs,
sugar for the eyes.

#napowrimo15 #digipoetry #npm15 Grandkid Art



Grandkid Art

Yes, bats hid in the cave
when we hike up the dusty hill
beyond the creek we cross,
balanced on the small elm tree limb
fallen over like a bridge;
Still, racing home again
it's chalk families and
painted flowers that keep us
hidden in our art cave:
Gramma's Cottage.

Tall

Tall, still clinging to
fall, awaiting one more warm
day to bud above
homes hidden by long shadows
of cast coolness from giants

Change

Morning cold morphs to
sunny afternoon walking
’til cool evening: spring.

#napowrimo15 #lightandshadow Spring Proclamation


Spring Proclamation

Starburst sepal; ringed
rays’ thin filaments shadow
petals proclaiming pears

#napowrimo15 #npm15 True: Early or Late


True, early bird gets his worm but
Early grandma gets her
flowers when grandkids arrive for spring break.

True, busy grandkids bring laughter and job well done
when visiting grandma on
spring break.

True, late jack frost could paint them
and wither them
but wasn’t it fun
on spring break?

#napowrimo15 #npm15 Yellow





Standing tall
A crown of gold
Bold
Among the purple and blue

Rays of yellow
A tuft of pride
Eyed
Allowed to grow and renew.

#napowrimo15 #npm15 #edjoy #clmooc Each Day



Each Day

Each day is a beginning
of chatter
that matters
to kids.

Each day is a beginning
of hoping
their coping
holds.

Each day is listening
to struggles
and muddles
to learn.

Each day is encouraging
and changing
for engaging
their minds.

Each day is empowering
our diversity,
our community,
revealed.

Childhood Bearings



Children needing real understanding to
solve, create self
Learn, regard ready,
World, Society morph needs: 
collaborative, innovative, valuable.

Imagine value readily
better the world
build communities
helping each other
connected world

Imagine mind boundaries
live, work, play — 

Give yourself bearings.
