I never sign up for “NaPoWriMo,” (National Poetry Writing Month) but try to write one poem each day. That keeps me stress free.
Here is one of the ten poems I have written this month. I hope to write ten more.
She lives in the shadows
Green dreams lull her to sleep,
Wind whispers soft tunes
Stars share her stories.
Her golden gown lends light
To brighten the dawn,
Lilies embrace her feet
Her fragrance mingles in them.
A coveted beauty of the gardens
Entwined with buds,
With tresses that touch the dew
Her graceful gait delights many.
Welcomed warmly by birds and bees
She swings on trees for a while,
Adds romance to the scene
And moves on, with the blink of an eye!
