Matchmaker

Hearts turn to the sky

With the thought of love in mind

Trusting in the orb

Seeking help to find the mate

That the harvest moon shall bring

Cutis Cartography

Her life was mapped out

Via lines on her person

Charting many years

Experience left its marks

Routes traceable throughout time

Old Dog New Tricks

We were faced with using SQUARE and CIRCLE, so I chose TROGLODYTE and WHIRL.

The troglodyte thought

I’ll give it a whirl, why not

Learn to disco dance

poplar roles models

Trees

Might be

Gentle giants

We learn to love

Grounded energy

Connecting earth and sky

Home to creatures great and small

Some succumb to Mother Nature

Others stand proud for hundreds of years

Teaching us to be strong no matter what

Vulnerability is Strength

This week, it’s the Poet’s Choice. I chose the words STRENGTH & VULNERABLE and to express myself in a DOUBLE ETHEREE.

We

Are not

Always what

We seem to be

Especially when

We are vulnerable

And the side of us we show

Might present the wrong impression

In reality, we’re seeking help

But don’t know quite how to express ourselves

That is when we need to trust that others

Understand more than we think they do

That they’re holding us in their hearts

Being our strength when we can’t

Allowing us our space

Where we know we’re safe

To find some strength

From within

And we

Bloom
