Contempt of Crows

All photos by PSC / 2014

Contempt of Crows

Heard their raucous cawing
long before I spotted them
perched high in the canopy.

Pondering what (or who)
they heckled, I imagine them
cheering me on
as I labor uphill
hindered by heavy layers,
spindly sticks straddling unwieldy shoes,
while they look on, amused.

With droll departing squawk,
they levitate, slipstream the breeze,
and leave me alone to lumber.

For You Today:

photo by PSC / 2012

For You Today:


these fingers, this hand

(which can’t be seen

by the naked eye)

clasp yours snugly.

These invisible arms

embrace, swaddle, envelop

both of us together

in a blanket of comfort

and strength.

Make no bones

of their mystical truth:

not corpo-

(but none the less

oh so very)

True Blue

True Blue


When she embraces in blue

all her other hues – glinting

gold, glory orange, blazing

yellow, radiant red – dim

and pale to black & white.

Wholly luminous silver frost

will wash out, losing light; but

even in her frozen form

blue is warm:  a hug, a kiss;

blue is home is love is bliss.



Penned for Creative Bloomings prompt #142 - "Take One Please".  (I selected "True Blue".)
