Quest

Bush with white star like flowers trailing down

Walking thru this life

Following a trail of stars

Searching for my dream

Question for Seekers

Seek and ye shall find.

What is it that you search for?

Are you in the right place?

Acorns aren’t found beneath

The branches of Maple trees

Tanka

I was prompted to write this poem today as I happened to see a little gray squirrel searching for food just outside my window. The little guy was actively checking out every flower pot, tree and place in the yard apparently looking for something to fill up his winter pantry. However, the trees in my backyard are only Maple and Evergreen, so he was coming up empty if he was looking for acorns. This caused me to consider what it was I was looking for in life and to ask myself if I was looking for it in the right places. Something we all should stop and think about occasionally

Searching for Inspiration

Who? What? When? Why? Where? Words In a cloud image
Uninspired, and I’m trying to write.

Who, What, When, Why, Where?

Why are some days such a fight?

Uninspired, and I’m trying to write,

But just a blank page is in my sight.

You know, some days just aren’t fair!

Uninspired, and I’m trying to write,

Who, What, When, Why, Where.
