On a Blue Bird Day

It is spring, warm breezes float through magnolia trees.  A gracious woman of the South rises from past memories; her thoughts behind the ice blue eyes. She sits on the bank of a pebbly brook under a Blue Bird sky, the scent of lilac rises from her starched dress.  She dips her fingers slowly into the cool water; she is old and life has passed her by, and the depths of her truth never known.  In her secret place of selfishness her hate for an unwanted child; she stops to ponder her own question; does she deserve the name “Mother”.

A Liar’s Life

thUFG1CZ41.jpg

 

Standing in a graveyard alone

to mourn, to stare at the mound

of dirt; at the shell of one who

loved but a few, the seed of

kindness never sowed, love they

did not seek, now only silence lies

beneath.  Entitlement is all that

remains, grief, no greeting,

unwanted presence, gestures, tone

and looks in death there was joy

and greedy ploys.  Gluttony bloomed

before the setting of the sun, looking

for more to take, life took on a forged

tongue.  Open jeers, false deeds, honor

lost, the price of greed can be at a great

cost.  Roars the misty breath of strife

destiny has finally caught up with a

Liar’s life.

Discarded

A reflection on conception an unwanted

Soul cast away because of greed. An

image of the future; lost in time, starvation

did not kill the seed

It lived, did not go away; destiny or fate;

life without love surrounded by hate.

yoke around the neck at birth emotional

scars during its journey on earth.

Tomorrows’ path long and steep, searching

the past; a need to prove why hurt and

anger ran deep. Truth in abandonment

can be found, sanity and sorrow closely

bound.

Journey’s End…

Reflection on conception, an unwanted

Soul cast away because of greed. An

Image of the future, lost in time, starvation,

Did not kill the seed.

It lived, did not go away, destiny or fate,

Life without love surrounded by hate.

Yoke around the neck at birth, emotional

Scars during its journey on earth.

Tomorrows’ path long and steep, search

The past, a need to prove why hurt and

Anger ran deep. Truth in abandonment

Can be found, sanity and sorrow closely

Bound.
