Evening of Laughter

Go visit The Poem Farm with Amy Ludwig VanDerwater for the roundup! 

I was lucky this evening to share a dinner table with Mary Lee Hahn, Cathy Mere, Deb Frazier and Marie Nixon. What great company and there was lots of laughter. I kept talking about how I didn't have a poem for today. I kept seeing things on my drive all afternoon that would be great, but got nothing. I had little nuggets and lines but it all sounded so random. So, I decided a random poem was in order. It turned out not so random after least not entirely. :)
I hope you all had a lovely Poetry Friday.

a random
dairy dream
ocean breeze
cool night air
goes up my sleeve
sitting here
watching there
warmth and laughter
my hair a net
to capture life
I hold it close
all through the night.

Dark Horses

Visit Tabatha at The Opposite of Indifference for more Poetry Friday Posts! 

Dark horses
Swift through trees
Shadows creep
As they create a breeze
In the leaves
And shape shift in the night
Dark horses fly
Through fields of moonlight
They fear not of fear
They run
They are free
Dark horses flee
from you
To me.

Earthetry Re-Visited with Tagxedo

This week our host is Jen from Teach Mentor Texts!

Haven't done this in a while but remembered when Mary Lee first introduced me to Wordle inspired poems. So, I gave Tagxedo a try this time with an old post titled Earthetry

A poetry smile
spreads over my lips
poem inspired
happiness rich.

Imagining an hour
with rays for trees
the sun as the breeze
eyes crinkled and green.

Reading the words
of pine sweet views
sometimes I think
earth's windows look through.

Words Flow

Poetry Friday is hosted by Author Amok this week. Join in and read some poetry with friends. 

Words flow free
from you to me
and waves of doubt
swirl in and out
but we don’t care,
we stop and stare
in each other’s eyes
no one can hide.
