Rise/Set #photochallenge #haiku

Palmetto rise

colors of the sun merge

Equator sizzle

 

I love sun rise and sunset. Different parts of the world have their own unique glow.

 

South Carolina sunrise, Ugandan Sunset, Santa Barbara winter sunrise

 

Happy Wednesday to WordPress Photographers as we enjoy Sunrises and Sunsets.

Your Arms #poetry #atoz #napowrimo

Maybe it takes walking

through life’s fiercest heated fires

to arrive at  green meadows

feel each blade of grass grow

*

Maybe it takes

enduring life’s harshest foamy storms

to revel in radiant sunshine

as it sparkles in your eyes

*

Maybe it takes

an upending, battering shipwreck

to relish salt’s splash

playing upon cheek and eyelash

***

no matter the fires

the storms or the wrecks

in your loving arms

is where I’ve found warm peaceful rest

Nautilus

This year for  A to Z challenge, I am using the Nautilus as my inspiration all month. The shell has many chambers (at least enough to fit all the letters.)  You will find poetry,  You will find some dark stuff (as I am attempting to branch into the horror genre), You will also see a smattering of short stories or prose (some with children in mind) others as lessons that we can all learn from. I look forward to  meeting you and getting to know some talented writers over this month long writing journey. Please check over at the A to Z challenge and see what they are up to; they are a fine bunch of folks.

The Heart of the Sea

Thunderous waves crashed

on a tender heart

her quiet plea

don’t tear me  apart”

*********

The spent wave

gently caressed her worn soul

healing  the pains

taking no more toll

*****

Embraced by calm winds

whispers  in her ear

it soothed and spoke

“yes you are so dear”

*****

Rocks were firm

like a strong arm

protecting against

threats of  distant harm

****

Smile in the sunrise

promises of  hope

precious moments by the  sea

kites, castles, and boats
