Poetry

I will be adding poems I’ve written that are not published in any official capacity. I just want to share a few of my posts from Twitter or social media that come to my head on a daily basis.

Happy Monday! One step at a time, smile as you wake The sun brings possibilities for a special day The week is beginning The rooster awakes Now don’t dawdle You’ll waste the day away Work hard and you’ll see It’s just another day.

~~~

Bright yellow wings heavy with dew Spots of black, red, and blue Perched on a flower the color of sky The little butterfly takes his first little bite Slowly he raises to take flight He moves to the next flower For his next bite

~~~

From far and wide the river bends Like these thoughts inside my head The water bubbles and takes away Some of the fish it sends astray A young boy casts a net The fish are too fast, needs are not met He works harder and harder Until His efforts prevail

~~~

The sky clashes Bringing light

I clutch my belly Oh so tight

The ground shakes And Rocks Fall

I must run before The mountain calls

Unsteady I run on legs wobbling

There is no time for stalling

~~~

Wednesday is the middle of the week It comes when days begin to creep A day to look around and think Two more days until I can drink Get to work and busy your mind Friday comes and you leave it behind

~~~

There comes a time when you say no more You stand and you fight or walk out the door Little is taken for granted Our worldview is slanted Don’t cry for my mistakes My heart already aches Look at yourself and what lies ahead It won’t be long til you’re dead

~~~

It feels like a day of sunshine As I pour my tea I feel all full of stories and move closer to lead Marching forward, I bend to take your hand I’ve never felt more complete giving a command Together we travel through rain and mud Don’t worry, the day is almost done.

~~~

Giggles and laughter, my day is full of love I look beyond the hustle and see a day a new Imagination and playful banter grows loud Inspiration comes in many forms This form is in three bright-eyed sweet souls

~~~

A step, a stumble Limbs heavy, body weak Joints ache, pain ensues Push through, fight hard Walking again is hard.

~~~

Monday comes around again Hateful thoughts fill our heads Slowly, we trudge around the house Leaving grudges about Driving we seem to have road rage Then the day is done and tomorrow isn’t so bad So, we keep walking along Then, Monday comes again and we restart

~~~

There is someone along our path Who teaches us that, Trust isn’t easily earned But if you hide it away You never open up to The gems you could find

~~~

The light shines on you darling The moon glows to lead you down the right path Your steps are the journey you’ve feared to take Now, be free and travel to your heart’s content

~~~
