Silent Good-bye, Spring Arrives

Truedessa's Collection














in silence the sound of good-bye
melting winter snow, spring arrives
listen for the willows soft cry
in silence the sound of good-bye
awakening, strong roots survive
stretching upward, towards the sky
in silence the sound of good-bye
melting winter snow, spring arrives

welcoming upcoming spring

Swaths of Color to See

The Wave - Pierre-Auguste Renoir - Wikimedia







choppy white waves
swaths of rippling blue
splashes emerald green
nature swirls with life
scattered palette of light
mixing hues
carrying a poets dream
flaming angel fish
rainbow of energy
wishing on a star-fish
movement of the tide
entertaining my muse

trying my hand at impressionism
with words
dVerse hosted by Bjorn
I used the painting to inspire my muse

Springboard to the Stars

 

springboard me among the stars
spiraling around in heavenly flight
sending earth, my fondest regards
passing through worlds of light
sprinkling stardust, healing scars
earthlings slumber, dreams of night
quietly slipping past portal guards
winged dragon, mysterious knight
slaying hearts in a cosmic courtyard

Tears to Giggles

Wikimedia commons



















mourning doves sing a somber song
I wonder when does the sorrow end
I want to taste the bubbles of life
again

fill my flute with golden champagne
uncork fizzles of delight, let my spirit
once again sing in joyous giggles
of blossoming spring

Summer Scented Night

Jasmine by Albert Joseph Moore
I long for a summer night
with hints of jasmine in bloom
garden of dreams taking flight
love fills the space we consume

with hints of jasmine in bloom
heady scent, I think of you
love fills the space we consume
warm waves, in oceans of blue

heady scent, I think of you
gentle breeze against my back
warm waves in oceans of blue
listening to life's soundtrack

gentle breeze against my back
serenading my foolish heart
listening to life's soundtrack
shadows of yesterday depart

serenading my foolish heart
garden of dreams taking flight
shadows of yesterday depart
I long for a summer night

Apparition



Apparition in the Woods - Moritz von Schwind, 1858

 slipping into lucid dreams a ghost whisper thin
beyond silken veil, in a parallel world
writing poetic verses, songs from within
waiting for you in a bed of roses curled
in another realm, will your heart I win
or are you simply an apparition...

Intergalactic Heart

she navigates the heavenly stars
sitting on the bridge of uncertainty
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

transcending boundaries, healing scars
a dragon's heart beats eternally
she navigates the heavenly stars

voyage to light, no matter how far
spiraling rings, gateway to eternity
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

freeing spirits from undue bars
soaring to the edge of insanity
she navigates the heavenly stars

magical wonders in a galactic bazaar
music found in a dreamy guitar
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

doorway to the universe left ajar
defying the law of gravity
she navigates the heavenly stars
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

I missed the mid-week motif - space
so here is my offering...

Water the Elixir of Life



Standing Rock Photo

  in a whiskey colored sky
my thoughts are stirred
standing on the rocks
in solidarity
wild buffalo hammered
on sacred ground for justice
 round radiant moon
offered light,  proof
of strong united spirits
