Inhale and Imagine

Pink Rose, rocks balanced in a pile, purple flowers

Breathe deep and dream!

Breathe deep, and face that fear!

Things aren’t futile as they seem,

Breathe deep and dream!

Life is just a balance beam,

Forward steps bring victory near,

Breathe deep and dream!

Breathe deep, and face that fear!

“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

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 22–Prompt: write an Ekphrastic Poem

Posted in August 2018, Double Triolet

They Said—I Said

Big tree

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

They said “ You won’t win”

They said “Just give in”

They said “ Don’t even begin”

They said “Who you think you are?”

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

I said “ I will soon win”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I will begin”

I said “ I will soon find a way”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

Double Triolet

Written to all the Naysayers from a Yaysayer

“Never Ever Give Up!” “Stand Tall” “Grow”

(When I saw this huge tall tree on my walk the other day these thoughts came to mind)
