jostle

jostle of dry autumn leaves
underfoot
felt like those tiny tender
desires that’d died
still births
some
hopelessly romantic leaves
still clung on trees
fluttering
perhaps unheeding
nature’s message
I wondered
as I made my way
dragging
reluctant feet
away from home
knowing full well
home
is where heart is

O Stalwarts
sublime
With ramrod
Spines
you
lift this
Droopy
spirit
Of
mine
Twin
Eyes
Of own
Volition
Kiss
Yon skies
Cheered on
By your
far- reaching
Leafy green
Boughs
Divine

trees

~
eyes
turned
upwards
I glance at trees
to know my pulse
how today’s gonna be
seeing them in nouveau
frippery, bare bones
covered in colorful lingerie
sluggish heart skips beats
gleefully
Spring’s a coming…
nay,,
it’s here
finally !

weather permitting

Face facing
Skywards
I question
In store
~

Plans topsy
Go belly up in no
time, weather
permitting
~
with implicit
Faith in heart
I simply accept
Going with flow
~
Accepting, never
Feeling any need
To be in know, knowing
HE best knows

Split
Second
Does pack
Mighty punch

streets

nature’s confetti
strewn pavements
corridors hold own
allures
~
sniffing air
lifting eyes
I seek sky
beyond trees
~
feet
optimistically
fold streets
till endings
~
every ending
supposedly is
a new beginning
till dead ends
~
dead ends
make head take
stock, suddenly spirit
soars taking off
