Who’s on the radio
You go listen to the guitar man

This week’s theme is butterfly and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Elusive Butterfly,” a 1966 song by Bob Lind.

Don’t be concerned, it will not harm you
It’s only me pursuing somethin’ I’m not sure of
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves

Proud silent tree
Shakes off summer leaves
As the wind blows in cold.
If they only knew,
I’ll be leaving here soon,
Perhaps they’d stay green
Until the first winter’s snow.
A small touch of grace:
Something left in this place
Will remind you of gold.

Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

Forgotten & Alone [MLM]

Howling wolf

I was a loyal friend,

Yet you betrayed me again.

You make a habit of lying,

While I wait out here crying.

What’s your excuse this time?

Don’t just hand me a line–

Cuz I’ve got your number,

And I ain’t gettin’ younger.

I hear laughter from your room;

Are you on that damn Zoom?

My food bowl is empty…

Don’t you forget about me!

Seeking Serenity

Calm blue water at sunrise

Sunrise is upon the tide,

Its ebb and flow a soothing guide

To accept the rhythm of this life,

Whether low or high.

Even on a moonless night,

Attraction pulls me to your side.

Soft sand cushions weary feet,

As I thank the susurrus of the sea,

A seamless peace.

Somewhere in that languid deep

Rest promises I failed to keep…

Yet here is the serenity that I seek.

Midnight Blooms

Dark blooms edged with red

Hungry for the sun,

They bask in glowing moon;

Disrespected in day’s light,

They thrive in raven night.

Odd ideas and strange desires…

In the dark, they catch on fire.

Dreams turn into rainbow rooms;

Midnight blooms dissolve too soon.

This week’s theme is rainbow and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “She’s A Rainbow,” a 1967 song by the Rolling Stones.

She comes in colors ev’rywhere
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Echoes in the Rain

Books butterflies library

[Created this poetry from titles on my read shelf at Goodreads. Added a few transition words and some punctuation.]

Shattered,
Since you’ve been gone…
I realize love is a numbers game.
What was lost
In the romantic English garden?
Only the truth.
Broken glass,
Snow & ash,
My hungry heart:
All are burnt offerings
In the full dark,
No stars.

Bleeding ink
For the wrong man,
I write the book of longing.
The wreckage
Of crooked little lies
Leads me to dark places–
Misery turns to obsession.
It becomes irresistible
To beg… let’s begin again.
Worth the risk?
Whisper me this:
“I will never leave you.”

Until we kissed,
I didn’t know about letting go,
Or devotion,
That dark surrender,
Such bitter sweets,
Becoming a heart of fire–
A jewel, when love rises.
And when you disappeared,
The reflected echo
Of the things we don’t say
Faded to only the rain,
And then there were none.

Found poetry idea from Libre Paley

Vision

Down the empty roads he walked,

His mind a mass of mournful thoughts.

His footfalls echoed like a dirge,

As the stink of rot soaked the earth.

Endless miles loomed ahead,

Each one darker than the next;

What was the point of going on,

When all his dreams had turned to stone?

But then he saw her, wild and free,

Dancing in the misty breeze;

Her laughter caused the stars to shine,

Her joy abundant in the night.

The air smelled of sweet perfume;

Oppressive fog now sparkling jewels.

Whether true or apparition,

She displaced his doleful vision.
