the sanity of birds

NaPoWriMo#5

I’ve been participating in National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), however, I’d simply been tweeting them. I’ll start to share them here too.

Oh, but at the sea . . .

the brave seahorse raids
the raging waters, fearlessness
in his gaze
I lurk about, waiting for
a glimpse of wonder . . .
a chance to witness
the essence of magic.

he wades through,
cautious and in-the-know,
I sit back
with my hands pressed
close to me
longing for the moment
to land an eye
on this incredible creature.

the ten-year-old trapped within
lunges itself forward
we find a few minutes
of excitement, pull them close,
and will ourselves on for
the evening.

we know the beauty
nature possesses,
does the seahorse
know?

I want to be like the birds

the color of beauty

color of beauty
God’s great work
breathing in flowers


*A lune (rhymes with moon) is a very short poem. It has only three lines. It is similar to a haiku. A haiku has three lines, and it follows a 5/7/5 syllable pattern. The lune’s syllable pattern is 5/3/5. Since the middle line is limited to three syllables, it is often the shortest line of the three. This makes a lune curve a bit like a crescent moon.

For the next two days, except Saturdays and Sundays, I will share a lune with each of you. This is Lune #24 of this project.

the crazy wind blows
and sun hides
behind the shadows
