Poetry Sunday:  A Most Extra-Ordinary Life

    A Most Extra-Ordinary Life     Though your smile fades from this place it shines deep inside of me and all who have known you, loved you.     Your life’s breath, extinguished here on Earth, now a forever light that burns brighter through me, around me and into the ethos.     […]

Midweek Poem-Yesterday

Midweek Poem-Yesterday

  Yesterday     Some days I sit with melancholy moods. Slipping back to yesterdays, where memories are strongest, yet so very far away.       And I long for those days, such an absence, aching now to regain playful flashes.       But they seem gone, those firsts…. riding a bike with […]

Poetry Sunday-Dear Imagination

Poetry Sunday-Dear Imagination

    Dear Imagination:     You come to me on crayon-colored rainbows scrawled on envelopes and walls. You ride on the wind with swings flying high, and bike spokes pinned with cards, clapping like hoof beats. You roll down hills laughing so hard you can hardly breath. And you plunk down in a meadow plucking yellow and […]

Poetry Sunday-Play With Abandon

Poetry Sunday-Play With Abandon

  Play With Abandon     Play with abandon, Fling your arms to the skies, Fly over the waves wearing necklaces of seaweed and shells. Skip along the lanes and the meadows Gathering wildflowers and shiny stones. Be free, never constrained. Feel life as it was meant to be, Washing in and out with the […]

Poetry Sunday-Late Summer Rains

Poetry Sunday-Late Summer Rains

Late Summer Rains     Late summer rains renew the parched landscape. Bringing late blooming flowers Kissed all too often by approaching frosty stares.     Late, last minute visitors find an oasis there Grateful for each drop of nectar. While bees sleep on flowers waiting for the warmth of the sun. Slowing in their […]

Poetry Sunday-Summer Memories

Poetry Sunday-Summer Memories

  Summer Memories     Lazy days beneath the leaves, Soft rain falling, feel the warm breeze. Shouts of joy, blooms of gold, Dreams of childhood; tales to be told.     When finally in my older days, These are the summer memories that never will fade.      © Donna Donabella 2012     […]

Poetry Sunday-Joyful Play

Poetry Sunday-Joyful Play

  Joyful Play   With arms outstretched, I whirl around Floating, spinning above the ground. Tiny feet dance on large shiny shoes, Piggy back rides with giants amuse.     As I ride the waves on the back of a whale, Now thrown off, high in the air I sail! And on the sandy beach we […]

Poetry Sunday-When The Light Went Out

Poetry Sunday-When The Light Went Out

When The Light Went Out     The light went out of my life that day. It was swallowed whole, trapped in a cave. Though I try in vain to bring it back, It alludes me now, gone to black.     And I feel somedays like the walking dead. Nowhere am I going, nowhere have […]
