A to Z poetry challenge 2021 - M

 



imagine
being balanced
around a mid point
being poised on a string
neither too little
nor too much
inhabiting that space
that exists
inside the chaos
that peace
being a hum
on a centred string
in tune
just imagine

A to Z poetry challenge - L




the wonder of life
it strikes swift as lightning
like the flick of a bird's wing
or a flash of iridescence
the spark of joy
of a turning leaf
signalling autumn
or that first opening bud
suddenly green
amongst the cold
it's a smile flashing
across the face
of the world

A to Z poetry challenge - K





the key
simplicity
breath in
breath out
feel the ground
beneath your feet
open your senses
allow life around 
to flow through you
be one with this moment
simple as that

A to Z poetry challenge 2021 - J

 


the joyous jumps 
of kids at the skatepark
gliding across the concrete
juxtapose beautifully
with birds swimming skilfully
in the water ponds
dragging “v”s behind them
creating laughter and beauty
in their wake

A to Z poetry challenge 2021 - I

 



I feel a failure tonight
as I sit here in the park
bathing my stinging senses
with fountain splashes
and green scents
the reason is
I had to pull out
of a lake walk
with a special family friend
because I couldn't cope
with walking in a group
all my nerve endings
rose up and jangled
and I needed to remove myself
I hope I didn't
let the side down
sometimes doing
what feels right
also feels wrong
but if I can look after myself
this way
maybe I'm not a failure
after all.

A to Z poetry challenge - H

 


home
the calm of refuge
a place within the storm
the snuggly warm
a quiet
refreshing
belonging
wonder filled space
bursting with love

A to Z poetry challenge 2021 - G

 



exquisite moments
so often fleeting
like bird flight
and sparkle
music
and scent
a good meal
and hugs
—-
and giggles
