Caterpillars in Parsley

Caterpillars in parsley
Sunflowers drying dipped on stem
Jasmine stretching skyward fenced
Stripey Tomatoes blooming boldly
Catnip rising beneath breadth of leaves
Yellow flowered squash meandering
Rosemary Tyme and ‘Regano
drifting lazily in breezes
and Mint cornered doorway
fragranceing the eve;
A garden for my dreams
and a cure for any troubled day.

When the melody of the day

When the melody of the day has laid out in gray

contemplation of eager manipulation

and trembling trepidation,

pause, breathe deep.

Close your eyes and feel the world

without care,

slip past unkindness unhindered,

pass by the wails of failure and

the fear of frustration,

into the depths of a place only

poets dare to go… and know.

Today is just a day.

It tripped,

it stumbled,


and fell flat,

but at the end, it is…

just that… past.

Now, is where you are.

And where you are – is beautiful.
