Budding Life

This poem is inspired by the date today 3-8 and the fact that it is my sister’s birthday! Those numbers comprise the syllables in each line. 3 -8-3-8-3-8 (etc.) This is also her 62nd birthday and that adds up to 8 and she is the 3rd child. Oh, and I only used 11 lines, because 3 + 8 = 11So, I guess I would title this syllabic form: Special Occasion Syllabic Poetry

In the trees

Branches are budding at their ends


For oh so many lovely leaves

And critters

Will build nests to house their young ones


From the hunters of easy prey

As well as

The elements of wind and rain

In the trees

No Clouds

Oh, those winter days when

Trees freeze against the sky

Even birds do not fly

Calm energy

Brown on Brown

Little birds hang around

They blend in with the leaves

Still remaining on trees

All at once, gone

Morning Musings

It snowed again, overnight

Eager eyes basked in the sight

Of frosted branches and ground

Squirrels scurrying around

Hunting food with all their might

Gale Storm

Windy shook things up

Blowing in from out of town

All Leifs fell for her
