I disappear inside myself, which leaves me feeling beside my self, when others are outside,
I retreat in bitter social awkwardness, to the dark corners of my mind.
I hide there, where no one can pry, or look at me with judging eyes,
I hide there with my torturous thoughts, my own company; my worst enemy.
I hide where no others can see, in my mental sanctuary, in a battle I can’t seem to win,
and at the end of the day, in the darkened grey, I’m just a lost soul trapped inside my skin..
Raindrops clinging to my screen,
lost in thought and distant dream.
Elbows leaned upon my window sill,
to take the shot and try to keep still.

Snow melts and gives way,
water droplets on display-
spring will soon be here.

Hey Mother Nature!
We are just two days away-
what’s up with this snow?!
I lay my first rose down to sleep,
I’m thankful for pictures to keep;
beauty of a Kordana rose,
worthy of poetic prose.
(1) Out with the old,
in with the new!
Happy New year,
from me to you!
(2) Two years ago this day,
a bright light entered my world
as I gave birth to a beautiful baby,
a lovely little baby girl.
(3) Sitting here blindly staring at a blank screen,
trying to think of a verse, a thought, a scene;
But alas, writer’s block hits me on this day,
so I’ll just leave this empty thought and then be on my way!
(4) Blistering, biting, one degree,
snow covers the ground;
wind kicks up with delightful glee,
adding to the eerie winter sound.
(5) Insomnios, my nemesis, visited me last night;
in the form of a baby girl, who often puts up a fight.
She wakes and cries and doth protest,
with all of her baby might.
(6) The gray smoke rises, wafting from chimneys all around,
greeting the early morning light without a sound.
Oh to be that wafting smoke, rising above the trees-
to be above and see below, the pretty scenery.
(7) Last night Insomnios evaded me, and I got to catch some zzz’s;
Somnambula was by my side, walking with such ease.
She seemed quite bored not to have demons to keep at bay;
and I was able to sleep through the night until the break of day.
Here I stand with you;
I see, say, hear no evil-
you are not alone!
The sun glimmers through the ruby leaves,
gleaming and shimmering.
Summer memories in the past,
recent memories of warm days.
Winter is in the future near and for the moment, I relish this autumn moment.
The sunny beams give peaceful hope-
a peaceful calm, before the winter storm.
