rustling winds suggest  
open windows, talk of trees
countryside abode

silence of nature
harmonious atmosphere

Dream Objectively

That vision seen yon, o’er
unlikely variegated arc
holds no cause of angst to heed—
dreams stay tight in hearts held open
aloft o’er jostling oceans along  
chase not of riches but  
victuals, warmth . . . shelter from
frostnip which hobbles the dream
fathomed in ascent.

Written for dVerse quadrille prompt 165: “warmly”.

Living Truth

That day
sitting in back
learning how it was that
fear, dominance, and indifference
often won’t see
a living truth

Existence on Earth
sliver of chance
on a globe
ripe with life, all kinds
feeding on availability

Time’s imaginings
intractable manners of being
horrors, distress
but so much happiness
blatant, like glad dogs—truths
waiting for their needful someone
