Poetry Sunday-Indigo Sky

Poetry Sunday-Indigo Sky

      Indigo Sky     Stars twinkle in the indigo sky Like notes to a score heard only by me, To catch the rhythm of the nite And ride it to the heavens.     Holding tight to angel’s wings, Watching the meadow with owl’s eyes, Knowing there is life here in these […]

Poetry Sunday-Do You Talk To The Bees?

    Do You Talk To The Bees?     Do you talk to the bees?  Well I do.  I wish them a good morning, with the sun’s first rays.  And as I do,  I give a wide berth to these buzzing teenagers, slow to wake.  They can be ornery, you see.  And if aroused, you […]
