There was a sound that caught my attention In the deep darkness there were but shadows Of trees that stood watch ‘til the morning sun Surely the sounds are not the cry of does Stepping on old dried leaves confused my ears Stopped still to listen again for the sound Calls maybe for help gave me many fears For the direction of the sounds confounds Sounds closer must be the right direction With an intensive ear I moved with speed There she was asking my full attention There was not a need for my help to plead Took her into willing comforting arms We now moved to a more accepting place ‘Twas my promise there’ll be no future harms And every day forward we shall embrace
Ephemerality Wispy cirrus clouds of height whisking by, While countless diamonds dance on the water, And swallows do somersaults in the sky. Like children there is a constant banter. Sitting in the cool comfort of the shade, Quiet as a lion stalking its prey, I wait for the fawns and does to invade, To drink the water, but long they’ll not stay. The wonders of this day soon to depart, To return only as a memory, Bringing subtle warmth to my beating heart. Tis my wish these memories never flee.
