Follow the Sun by Richard Stephen

goldensunset_smAfter a much too long break from writing, I’ve finally published a new poem celebrating my love for dawn and dusk. I know I am not alone in my love for these times of the day. I’m in very good company. But they are periods of such peace and reflection for me that at times I wish I could live in them. This, of course, is impossible but is nonetheless the subject of my newest poem, Follow the Sun. I hope you enjoy it.

Follow the Sun

I wish I could follow
the glorious sun
where morning is new
or the long day is done

and be ever found
beneath golden skies
of the fledgling day
or when evening sighs

for I do so treasure
those golden hues
painted on a canvas
of soft pastel blues

Four New Haiga Celebrating Autumn by Sannel Larson

My friend, Sannel Larson, lives in Sweden. Autumn is well under way there and the foliage is donning it’s fall colors. She took her camera with her on a recent walk with her faithful four-legged companion Max and took some beautiful photos. She used some of these photos to create some even more beautiful haiga celebrating autumn.

These new haiga and much more can be found on her blog, Sannel’s World of Poetry. I know you won’t want to miss these lovely haiga. While you’re there check out her other poetry and her newly published children’s book, Melvin … bad, bad kitten. It would make a wonderful gift for young ones with the holiday season quickly approaching.

Micropoetry – 19-September-2013

SnowdropsSpring

a seed sleeps
beneath a blanket
of old snow
waiting …
patiently
for the sun
to pull away her covers
embrace her,
make love to her
and release
her beauty within

shattered dreams
in tiny razor shards
fall to the floor
cutting
those who dare
walk on
