MADD WINTER COUNTDOWN #30

one by one
these winter snowflakes
drift and float
twinkling like stars
fell far from heaven

UNDECIDED 2020 – ‘TIS THE END

mindless drones
in a maddened frenzy
before the End Of Days
gather bits of crumbs
ten minutes before the closing hour

addled shoppers
with apocalyptic vision
gather loaves of bread
a gallon of milk
and strawberry jam

WILD THINGS

[…] “There are as many ways of loving as there are people, and that wildflower variety is the great beauty of this dimension of existence.” […] (Rumi)

in winter’s sunlight
romance finally blossoms
greenery sprouts rise
blossoms pregnant with promise
as spring lurks around freely

memories of love
fall away like orchid buds
carried by the winds
accumulate and disperse
in unspoiled depths of oceans
