Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 39: (CONTRAST) in the A rhyme line.

Looking Ahead

Looking outside at the contrast 
of morning and evening are there 
it is not that I even care 
The day before is now the past 
the day ahead might be my last 
I live to see beauty today 
and breath some more in if I may 
knowing for me there is still hope 
and I will be able to cope 
with whatever comes on my way.

Time Together

On a cold dark day 
the one thing I desire 
is you  in my arms 
us in front of a fire  

With no one around 
to bother us here 
that intimate feel 
there is love in the air.

The Sunday Whirl: Wordle 483


When I listen to the wind 
I hear sounds from my home 
sounds so soft and tender 
like big bubbles upon new foam.  

The gratitude I hear right now 
helps feed my hungry mind 
there is no simple frill or vibe  
no, nothing of that kind. 

And so I lay upon my bed 
of silver sheets and spread 
while all the sounds around me 
flow softly through my head.   

And when I find my road is done 
I will not mince a word 
I finally put my finger on it 
My family says I’m absurd.

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, February 26th 2020, Cherry Tree In Full Bloom

cherry trees in full bloom Japan

Tiny buds open into light pink flowers
Bees buzz for nectar and birds perch for the warmth of the branches
Spring is coming and the world is beginning to awaken.

Light pink flowers bloom
To spread life and joy around
For all to enjoy.

Thank you Sue!

Imagine this

Imagine your mind is a calm pond 
still waters, beautiful reflections 
needing no one but itself 
to sustain the life it holds. 

Imagine your life is a calm pond 
still waters, full of life 
holding each creature in safety 
providing everything it needs to survive.  

Imagine the world is a calm pond 
still waters, hiding, protecting, securing 
the life it holds so close 
for everyone to enjoy.

Fandango’s February Expression #21

Discretion is the better part of valor

I honestly have never heard this, well maybe, but just in passing. Anyhow, looking up valor I found this: val·or/ˈvalər/noun 1. great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle.

That being said, my interpretation would be that you do for the good, not for the glory.

Saving the World

I want to save the world  
but just before I do  
let me fix my make-up  
get dressed up, tie my shoe.  
I wouldn’t want the others  
to see me in my rags  
They’d think I’m a beggar  
Ignoring fashion mags.  
If I see you need me  
give me a bit of time  
To fix my hair, find a dress  
Looking good ain’t no crime!
