January – week 1

New Year’s Day

a squirrel turns over

another brown leaf . . .

the unexpected treasure

in an everyday moment

~

a feeling

that this year

will be special . . .

the lilac

is already in bud

~

from a droplet

world within a world

you filled me . . .

I brought you home

to lilacs in full bloom

~

the sound of my breath~

a streak of electric blue

skims the water

~

a breath of fresh air

through the January blues…

kingfisher

~

January dusk

a hint of spring

in the robin’s song

~

folded

inside the chrysalis

the blueprint of spring…

on the brink of womanhood

the jewel colours of your heart

~

    Claire and Amy:

    These are beautifully crafted poems, and I particularly like “a feeling,” and ” from a droplet.”

    Look forward to reading more of your poems.
