Let Your Song Be… #poetry #music

harp music

Deep within my soul

there flows a faithful song

it started as a child

like a friend it tagged along

Whispers in the leaves

and echoes in my head

lingers in heart’s dreams

where daily it was fed

Growing like the falls

music’s river rushes on

deep within my soul

there flows a faithful song

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
Friedrich Nietzsche,
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”
Victor Hugo
“Let your song be delicate.”  Is today’s Poets United  (or not)  Prompt
I wonder what song your poetry  might sing…

First Light #haiku #poem #photography

drip

bone chilling cold

winter’s darkest moment

the soul’s deepest need

*

crunch beneath boots

trees reach to catch snowflakes

welcome dawn’s mooring

 

 

“First Light” is the prompt at Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem.

Words of Grace #Easter #poetry

Easter Lily

He whispered words of grace

balm against my anguished soul

massaging the world’s pointed pain

He touched with words of grace

sweet myrrh filled emptiness

healing my life-long scars

He planed with words of grace

sanding away cancerous decay

the shaving sno part of me

He walked away from grace

nails driven into eternity

sin abolished in sacrifice

 HE lives words of grace

joyous love fills the soul

barren no more

*****

Wishing each of you a Happy Easter.

May your burdens be lifted

The Moon’s Glow #poetry #life’slesson #amwriting

Moon by ShironekoEuro

Ah the harvest moon

filled with amber glow

release your source

unveil your love

pour dust upon my soul

*

gazing down she softly smiles

her radiant all the more

adore me not

you star fazed one

gaze upon life’s shore

*

I smile into childlike eyes

I but a mirror grand

I gather light into my self

joyous to sit

upon sun’s night stand

*

look up into radiant  light

take in his daily glow

bask in his warmth

no matter what the day

his love for you will show

One Tear Spilled

down her face
today
unwelcome -but like rain
it came anyway

***

Why the sorrow in her
eyes
unguarded torrents
that she would despise

***

tears will recede

they will

go

just a drop

in the bucket in her soul

Thank you for this amazing shot: Mr. Usaji

The Rain in My Soul

The Rain

In My

SoulDreary

No one near
No words
To make it clear
What
I’m feeling

Is it you

Is it me?

 

There’s an
absence
hear my plea

I love the rain

does a thorough wash

But this rain
in my soul
I’d like to quash

It isn’t gentle
Isn’t sweet
It’s harsh
cruel pounding
leaves me
beat

I hate the feeling
unable to cure
the pains
the sufferings
that others endure
