OF FREEDOM

Courage allows for our ethics to remain strong;
an idealism that is the antithesis
of what the common perception is.
A sense of decency and decorum.
A truth based in knowledge,
of good will, not bad faith.
Our punishment is the loss of freedom.

FAITH: SILENT AND STILL

Faith lays silent and still,
a gentle prayer, a whisper,
a morning affirmation,
a vesper, a belief meant
as a relief for a troubled soul.

Faith is an internal discussion,
a rumble, a percussion,
an impression upon which
we hang our admission.
“We believe!”

“Faith” Poem

dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille #31: Still

THE KISS OF LOVE

a lilting sound,
a song played in the night.
fire crackles, sparks ignite;
stars abound.
this symphony of night

found hidden;

two souls in love.
whispered vows, doves coo
lyrics sung to that tune
captured, harmony that
will seal lips,

the kiss of love.

Poetic Asides PAD Day 3: (Blank) of Love

SWEET AND SLOW

The day that spring
appears we’ll cheer
and revel in celebration.
The days pass, slow not fast,
each in question. Any mention
of freezing leaves me
cold. These are the waitings
we are partaking. There’s no
mistaking, spring is taking
it’s sweet old time!

IN SILENCE

Hushed breathing
in the dark night.
Nightlight aglow.
Suddenly stirred,
a sense of security arises.
Listening in the night,
attentive. A soft giggle; the coo
of a precious dove, angelic.
She settles in again to sleep.
A world of love in a baby’s peep!
