For the Birds

In

Midway

of ocean

Trees reach to sky

Haven, they built for

Birds, northbound and southbound

Water rises, heads go higher

Roots skinnier, refuse to be drown

Tens of thousands years they’ve survived

Until the last inhale, they will try

Colleen’s Poetry Challenge: Photo Prompt – The Messenger

It’s the middle of the month challenge ~ time for a photo prompt! Colleen wants us to use this photo as the inspiration for the poem.

 

 

The Messenger

A

bottle

half buried

in smooth white sand.

Reminder of kisses,

warm braces and loving gazes,

our future we celebrated.

Through cruelty we were separated.

Holding tears this bottle I picked up.

“I’m alive, call this number, my love.”

A Newborn in the Family

What

A joy

To welcome

Baby Tori

My niece’s first child

Into the family

Eager waiting is over

Magic of baby’s first cry

Cast away worries and doubts in mind

Mother’s painful labor forgotten

Holding and beholding the miracle

Amazed by life’s fresh beginning

Overwhelming excitement

Shared by parents, grandparents

Siblings, aunts and uncles

New page of a book

Invites us all

To pen in

Colored

Stroke

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly Poetry Challenge – Slow & Work

Here is this week’s Colleen’s 2019 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 121, “Slow & Work,” #SynonymsOnly

January 12 to 20, 2019, a group of family members from West Coast of the U.S.A. traveled to Hong Kong to celebrate my nephew’s wedding, a joyous begging of a new journey. It was a marathon ceremony of playing Chinese traditional games when the groom picked up the bride in the morning. The games were set by the bridesmaids and responded by the groom and best men. Only when all the games were responded, the door was open for the groom to pick up the bride. Then a modern church wedding and garden cake ceremony were held in the afternoon, and a nine-course Chinese banquet was served in the evening when the bride and mother-in-law (my sister) changed their gowns four times.

Colleen’s Poetry Challenge – Poet’s Choice of Words, Chill & Hot

“It’s the first of the month and poets get to choose their own words!” – Colleen Chesebro

Chill

Winter

Thunder storm

Gusty wind blasts

Snaps exposed tree limbs

Endless streams splash puddles

Muddy rain water splatters

Under squeaky vehicles

No desire to fight no-win battle

Sit by the fire sipping hot chocolate

The

Seasons

In nature

Paint the wordless

Story pictures of

Modern and ancient time

Chilling and moaning moments

Sunny and cherry occasions

They caress our hearts and whispering

Sunset at night brings sunrise in morning
