Rain, Poetry by James Kennon

Genre: Nature, Rhyme, Funny

Rain
by James Kennon

Rain falls like terminal dodo birds liquefied by infinite speed,
gravity plunges one way, directional confusion of enveloping skins, wave upon wave etc…

Circular chitterings of gnomish crazy-eyed beaks,
quills loaded with thick black syrupy information encrypted into dazzling streaks of digital flight,
through iron pellets and streaking beams of displacing squareness that leave gaping holes in reverse images frozen with surprise.

Wetness brings cures for dryness, visions of self reflected in falling drops show the multitudes of one, bringing joy in wetness all things are covered,
old brains,
wear plastic yellow sheets that hum rain into piercing darts, splinters.

How did I think I could see the rain eye to eye without falling?

One Woman, Poetry by TS Willis

Genres: Nature, Earth, Spirituality, Native American, Women

One Woman
by TS Willis

Who am I
that You
would think so kindly toward me

that You
would cradle me
and call me Daughter

when
i am but one Woman –

one Life
one Heart
one Love

I hear your sweet whisperings gentle soughing sighs
through the leaves overhead
in the chirring rhythms
of the crickets
chittering squirrels
in the calls and cries
of the birds in the branches

marvel at mysteries and visions
in the roiling clouds as they pass

and

I am struck dumb for the moment –

overcome

eyes and Spirit
flooded with gratitude

unashamedly laid low
in humility and wonder

Sweet Earth
You are my Mother

I lift my hands
my smoke
my song
in your honor

I am yours I am yours I am yours…

one Woman

one Life
one Heart
one Love
