ON THE BREEZE



On National Poetry Day I celebrate all the wonderful poets who share their words with us. We respond to poems with individual taste, some move us deeply, illuminate, make us laugh or resonate with memory and experience. Some are accessible, lighter in tone, others written with a degree of technical skill and craft honed over years of practice. All can find a home where they are welcomed and appreciated. This is a brushstroke of my words which I hope find their way to where they belong. 


ON THE BREEZE

I free my words to
blow far on the breeze
taking flight with
flocking birds tracing
perfect mandalas in
migratory haste.

May they find you
on walks among trees,
by sun kissed seas,
mirrored in lakes so
still and deep they
reflect our soul.

May you feel the love
in their making, reverie
filtered through cloud lace,
to rest where needed, like
feathers floating earthwards,
in spirals of grace.
