A poem about living creatively

Photo by Jeremy Bishop on Unsplash

it’s time to go for a swim
in the ocean of inspiration
diving deep to fetch
pearls of wisdom and
marveling at the strange and
wonderful creatures that inhabit
the depths

to gaze down from the surface
you only see the outlines of
things fantastical and
otherworldly, shadows of
possibilities not yet fully formed…

A poem of longing for summertime

Melon.
Sweet-crunchy
summertime-savoring delight,
bursting with nectar.

Melting-crisp bites of
refreshing pink secrets
enveloped in forest-green rind
recall verdant play on
sunny days and
memories of simpler times:

The crunch of black seeds
as popsicles melt
and sprinklers flow
drenching your skin and
rinsing the sticky juices
from your lips,

A love poem

barren and beautiful
the wide empty valley
echoed with the
songs of my soul and
the whispers of my
heart

the silent breeze
carried notes of
bittersweet memory as
the footsteps of myself
and my beloved
left imprints on the
brittle earth

how lush the inner world
felt even amid the
desolation…
