We fan the embers

turning to flamingo flames

parsing the silence

like a blue-white star –

fire so hot there is no smoke,

just the melt of time.

.

Vermilion night,

soft sizzle of sparks afire –

it begins to rain.

Quick note:  Yesterday was my 8th anniversary here on WordPress! I’m thankful to have met so many wonderful, kind, gifted writers here over the years. Many of you have become dear friends. 

Thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement, and thanks also to those of you who have bought my book “Skipping Stones” this last year!  That has meant a lot to me!  (Shameless plug:  it’s still available. 😁😁  )

With love and gratitude,

Betty  ❤❤

There is that moment,

an imperceptible pause

just before we leap.

white-cheeked clouds mooning the earth

pansy smiles and winks.

charming as a camellia

never mind the thorns.

Honey bees delight

in the spread of sweet clover

till Lawn Mower starts.

Closer and closer

it shaves the yard shorter, but

leaves a friendly patch.

spill from their wooden barrel,

“Catch me if your can!”

reach out their limbs for a hug

and I shall comply.

Spring and winter spar

rain mixes with something white

snow teases the vine.
