Dancing on Air

Angels in euphoric dance

Swirl in the great expanse

Over the clouds so puffy white

Heavenly beings full of delight

Mom is there joining in with glee

Eighteen years this day, there went she

Left earth aged with all its pain and woe

And flew to heaven with hair white as snow

Now in restored youth, she rejoices there

Dancing joyously with angels upon the air

Con-Verse

( I wrote this poem with my mom in mind as 18 years ago today she left this earth and went to heaven. She was 85 years old and I like to imagine that today she is in restored health and dancing on air with angels, as she always loved to dance when here on earth.)

(This is my first time writing this Form called:

Con-Verse, created by Connie Marcum Wong, which consists of three or more 2-line rhyming stanzas (couplets). The meter of this form is in syllabic verse.

Rhyme scheme: aa,bb,cc,dd,ee

Meter: 7,7,8,8,9,9,10,10,11,11)

(Syllabic verse only counts the number of syllables in a line.)

(This form consists of three or more couplets which ascend by one syllable up to and until you reach a syllabic count of eleven which would contain ten lines.

This process may be repeated for a longer verse. If repeated, you must begin your first couplet with the syllabic count of seven again and continue from there.)

Truth or Fiction?

Things are not always as they seem.

What we see may not be what is.

Sometimes eyes play tricks,

And our mind does also.

We need to ask ourself,

Is reality

Truly what

My eyes do

See?

Coming Soon

Sky, sun, clouds
The Eclipse is coming!

Strange behavior seen

The heavenlies react

Clumulus run from the sun

Cloud chaos in the sky

Mares tails sweep the heavens

The Eclipse is coming

The moon silently awaits

Its two minutes of fame
