Marshmallow S’mores

Marshmallow S’mores (Randyjw; February 18. 2018)

 

And so I looked

caught the last fiery embers

as they rose up in smoke

Though I still remember

a chapter from that book

the fireflies still dancing

when the grey overtook

smoke inhalation

all the oxygen subsumed

by the pyre’s escalation

white hot ash could resume

For was used deadened sticks

though what wasn’t destroyed

tender cores through its midsts

green twigs meant for s’mores

Heart

Heart (Randyjw; February 14, 2018)

 

For all the love your heart can hold

May you receive one-thousandfold

Because your heart is open wide

the love you give is multiplied

Pine

 

 

Pine (Randyjw; February 13, 2018)

 

Come near to the window, my darling,

where the light silhouettes your form

Sleep softly in safety and comfort

as the sun greets your face in the morn

 

Arise by the river at daybreak

refreshened by droplets of dew

and dip of your cup from the sourcespring

capped by nectar where wildflowers grew

 

Lay down in the canopied bridges

where the sun sparks the earth with its light

Yet the wind flirts with birch and deciduous

clouded mists graze horizons of pine

Midnight Dates

Midnight Dates (Randyjw; January 31, 2018)

 

Beneath the fruit-filled palms

sweet memories and songs

I celebrate

the midnight dates

returned where I belong

 


 

I can hardly believe that one year has passed so seemingly quickly since my last Tu B’shvat post. I can vividly recall the emotions I was feeling at that time, and believe I’m now stronger and in a better place, especially heart-wise, these many days later.

 

This progression has been a journey helped along by the community of writers in WordPress, and by the trial of my soul borne through reflection and introspection; I can’t thank you enough.

 

Have a great Tu B’shvat, with all of the goodness and sweetness of Life always at your side.

 

Love, Randy/Rachel

Soul Seek

Soul Seek (Randyjw; January 26, 2018)

 

It seems we always return

to some specific times and moments

the point of crash at which

love, death

horror, or regret

leave with their lasting impact

impart their never-ceasing

cycles

of alternate endings

remembrance

forget

No sound for

quite awhile

 

Now you know why

Solo

Solo (Randyjw; January 11, 2018)

 

First attempts

inexperience

later life

more relevant

Made-up songs

once begun

self-same audience

only one
