DO NOTHING IN THE TOO MUCH

Do Nothing in the too much

Many choices disable clarity

Stacked on layers of possibilities

The weight of all of it is crushing

Many choices disable clarity

Give pause to the knowing that waits in the shadows

The weight of all of it is crushing

Breath is caught in the in between

~

Give pause to the knowing that waits in the shadows

Stillness allows the inner light to rise and shine

Breath is caught in the in between

Exhale the burden host of overwhelm

Stacked in layers of possibilities

Exhale the burden host of overwhelm

Do nothing in the too much

SPRING HAS FOUND HER FACE… a triolet … day 23


23rd day of NaPoWriMo…  Today’s invitation/prompt, is to write a ‘triolet’.  Yippee, a new form to try.  Here is what a triolet is for those of you that can hardly wait, are quivering with unnatural excitement, to take this form on.  Whose in?:

“A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.”

SPRING HAS FOUND HER FACE

Thank heaven Spring has found her face

With green and Sun she comes to rise

Let the season begin the race

Thank heaven Spring has found her face

With hope she doesn’t leave in haste

To fast her leave would be a waste

Thank Heaven Spring has found her face

With green and Sun she comes to rise
