Poem of the Week

Helios and the Doves

Helios standing on the edge of the world
waiting for the queen of the moon Diana to arrive
wears her deerskin dress and quiver of bow and arrows.

The green grass smelled of jasmine as Pan blew on his pipes in Arcadia.
One more maenad left behind from her sisters
danced and laughed through the cypress and pine trees
towering into the sky.

The only birds that flew past her
were doves
graceful and lithe as Helios reached out to
hold them in his golden light.

Poem of the Week

Fabric Dragonfly

Running into
not far away from
that old friend
you longed to see but were not allowed to
familiar in appearance
soft to touch silky shimmering gossamer
that could adorn your waist
and float around the ballroom floor on Saturday night.

Poem of the Week

Daytime Revelry

Bouncing back and forth
across the highway
waiting for a ride
a ride to anywhere
where there are hamburgers, hotdogs and French fries
ice cream for dessert.

It might be the beach
in the mountains
or in the green desert
surrounded by Saguaro cacti in full bloom
or a waterfall in the park
where the wood sprites join us in
daytime revelry.
