Hope & Feathers

Poets tell me Hope is a feathered thing,

Like a bird on the wing,

Swifts and swallows swoop in pentameters…

Calling me to action.

But but also to rest.

Let Hope

roost in your hands and your heart.

Hope

The limb

broken by the storm

has

Small green stars

Blooming from the torn bark .

Measurements

There is no need to fight ….

Tug for play not war,

We all measure up in the eyes of Love!

Time to get out of the water

The sky was blue

And filled with birds,.

The water was clear,

And filled with people…

The wind blew,

Clouds rolled in.

And the birds?

Where did they go?

Poking out of the bamboo

Was an all American bambino!

Little reminders of beginners mind are everywhere!

Sturdy Fun

The rain had stopped,

The class had started.

And there, wagging and sturdy,

short legged, curly hair, chubby

And willing

She began to learn the basics of a sport

Some might think was designed for others more lithe than She.

Sport

Is another word for fun!

Don’t forget to play,

EVERY DAY.

Cat pause

I reach for the paper,

I pick up the brush, dip it in ink…

And there You are…

Purring and playing.

And I can think of nothing else.
