Unique Unicorns

Imagination

In fairytail fantasies

Unicorns pink and blue

Dance with red butterflies

In a field of yellow roses

“The Starry Night”

“The Starry Night” painting by Vincent Van Gogh 1889
“The Starry Night” painting by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889

Down below

We dont really know

What swirls above

And dwells thereof

In that starry night

That lies beyond our sight

Among the clouds of white

Floating in a sea of blue

Are things hidden from our view

We can dream and contemplate

Research, study and debate

Yet we’ll not truly know my friend

Until our life reaches its earthly end

Ekphrastic

In the Aftermath Of Winter

Rose bud

Searching for sunshine

A tiny bud pushes forth

Roses rise again

Haiku

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 21–Off Prompt

I am glad to see my roses springing up and back to life after the hard winter we had. I lost a few plants to the cold weather but my roses all survived and are looking healthy and growing.

11:11

Alarm clock with hands pointing to 11:11

I often see the time 11:11 on clocks

Some think it’s a angelic sign

Some say it’s promising sucess

But really, it’s not either of those

It’s telling me I’m late to work

Syllabic Verse
