Poem 4 - #AndSoToBed

The day is long, and I am tired
This often seems to be the case
No matter what each day required

If this were a job, I'd be fired
There's no energy to give chase
The day is long, and I am tired

I wish that I could be rewired
So that I could always keep pace
No matter what each day required

But sadly, now my brain is fried,
It all just seems a murky haze
The day is long, and I am tired

A great to-do list keeps me mired
In thoughts that run around in place
No matter what each day required

One day abed just sounds inspired
To help this laziness erase

Poem 3 - Garden, Garden, Garden - Eat!

The dirt is dug and dampened from rain
My garden is growing as the ground is renewed
Spinach is sprouting though springtime has not
I'm waiting for warmth to welcome more seeds
Beans begin better when temperatures rise
Tomatoes can't tolerate when temperatures are low
So I wait till the weather is warmer to let them grow
Pumpkins have planted their personal seeds last fall
And carrots are currently not acclimatized to the rain
But springtime will spring very soon and I'll plant
Various veggies all vetted for the table
Grown in my garden as green as I'm able

It's April - the month, that is

Hey all!

It's April! Well, actually, it's double April - me & the month. Smiling

So, I'm back again for NaPoWriMo aka National Poetry Writing Month - 30 Poems in 30 Days. The one time of year I can be guaranteed to put something up here.

Poem 2 - Spring Colours

Cherry blossoms on my tree
Puffy, pink and small their bloom
Springtime comes to welcome us
Before blossoms start to fall
Splashes decorating hair
Tendrils pink fall past her 'lobes
Cheery colour for springtime

ancreontic poem

Poem 1 - Caged

Within my ribs is caged a heartache
The emptiness filling and tightening
A muscle of emotion cannot break,
Only squeeze and pound in fruitless longing
To be known, not hidden, but awake
Open to trust those I love with sharing
But now I hold an old bear to my chest,
Blue and squished, well-worn from my caress.

NaPoWriMo 2012

NaPoWriMo happens every April. Hmm, isn't that convenient.


Poem #30 - Endings

tantrum subsided
through snuggles and story time
now we go to bed

Poem #29 - Preparing for the Future

post-apocalyptic check list

sewing - check
knitting - check
garden - in progress
bike repair - need to learn
canned food - some
water - uhh, in the tap?
sleeping bags - check
tent - very big and heavy
hunting stuff - what? what now?

umm, change that

post-apocalyptic check list
go to Yarrow

Poem #28 - My Day

I will stop and have a Kashmir tea
I will take a moment to write
I will enjoy the sunshine
I will bake a cake and ice it
I will wear my 'Roots' proudly
I will enjoy my family
I will have a quiet moment just for me

is my day

Poem #27 - Three for Life


In several rows with weeds between
I'm trying to grow something green
So that, for once, I will know
Where it came from when it did grow


On this fair step I fall quite short
Too reliant on cars for support
I need to get my ass in gear
So the air I breathe remains clear


It's falling from the sky today
And never seems to go away
One day it might be toxic I heard
The thought seems patently absurd
But I put the feces down the drain
So they don't get washed away with rain

Three things are most vital -
Yet I wonder where they'll be
