Above The Weather…

Under the weather,

Seeking to ascend.

Into the silken blue,

Where infirmity ends.

Chicken soup and love,

Lots of rest and drink.

Transport me to the land of healing,

Above the weather I wish to be.

Virga In The Valley…

It’s raining in the sky,
No hopes of touching ground.
Virga in the valley,
Sight without sound.

Beautiful, mysterious darkness,
A mass collection of gray.
Is there a longing to to connect,
Or a desire to stay away?

Virga in the valley,
I see beginning, and I see end.
It’s raining in the sky ,
Strands of water, limited.

Above The Tangible… (Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge Day 23)

For today’s prompt, write a location poem. Location could be physical–Or location could be emotional, psychological, metaphysical, or some other kind of word that ends in -al. Or surprise everyone!


Among the clouds
I drift away
Soft into the spring sky.

All that surrounds
Is the peace
Within my glowing mind.

Bird’s melodic verses,
Sifted by distance
Are companions to my ears.

The warmth of the sun
Blankets my soul,
As the tangible disappears.

Suspended by draping moments
Encapsulated by their own passing,
My heart beats in pace with serenity.

And suddenly I’m aware.
I will have to descend once more,
To a world abrasively consuming.

Full Moon’s Portion…


Forcing its glow upon closest billows,
To smother the dark density.
Affirming it’s superiority.

The half moon of a full moon night,
All the sky was offering.
Clouds obscuring clarity.

Yet, no doubt, the fullness exists,
In its spherical certainty.
Anchored above sturdily.

Radiance diminished by perception,
Senses often employed carelessly.
When all are bathed in the celestial reality.

Sun Surprise…


Dwelling among the grayness,
Which had become sufficient light for me,
I simply forgot to expect the sun’s return.

Then suddenly, with a bright nudge,
A radiant heat upon my skin.
I’m reminded, for light, to yearn…
The e sun first breaks through
A dreary, cloud-filled sky
And finds its way to my face

That first unobstructed glow
The warmth enhanced by its absence
Is a gentle kiss of God’s love and grace

Then the clouds re–blanket
Softly settling back to their places
The sun continues to burn them away

Peeking in and out of small progress
Atmospheric denseness drowning
Asserting illuminations’ reign
How could I get comfy with the gray?
Why was I surprised by the sun’s rays?
Maybe “why”, isn’t important.

My heart is filled with appreciation.
Right now is a new now.
And back to the moment I’ve been transported!

Cloud lenticular

You are so peculiar

Lovely enigma…
