The summer spirits beckoned me
to sweep emotional debris
outside my mind with breeze from sea
and let it fade from memory.
For that, I went to bungalow
in cadence with the ebb and flow.

Along the shore, we gathered shells
deposited by ocean swells,
until we heard the vesper bells
recalling us for prayer spells,
where we gave thanks for nature's grace
and peace we found in quiet space.

Too soon, we had to pay the bill
and flip the switch to working drill
in order to restock the till.
In spite of that, I always will
maintain a fond affection for
the time we spent along the shore.

Little Willie had ominous plight
when his dad developed severe cough,
which caused the family some fright,
so he chopped his dad's head clean off.

Hospital sign declares
"NO VISITORS ALLOWED,"
when I am admitted
beneath pandemic cloud.

No one in empty room
but me, myself, and I
with thoughts of locust tree
blooming under blue sky.

In place of family,
"beep...beep...beep" throbs machine,
depleting will to live
while trapped in quarantine.

Without social contact,
my spirit starts to slip,
and Charon's little boat
stops by for final trip.

Mortician's van arrives
to cart my corpse away,
as human dignity
is buried here today.

Angel Oak tree on Johns Island, SC, with permission from AngelOak.com
Photo used with permission of AngelOakTree.com


Majestic Angel Oak tree weaves
many mythic tales, told to seize
moments of danger and reprieves
meandering through the centuries.

Alluring yarns from yesteryear,
assembled among sprawling limbs,
affirming proper course to steer
after overcoming human whims.

Legendary survivor of mighty storms,
laconic protector of ancient ghosts
lingering in their uniforms,
like they remain at duty posts.

Earthly visitors stand bewitched,
exuding joy over sacred link,
elemental spirits who stitched
enraptured people to Holy brink.

Country bumpkin
loved girl next door
with daisies in her hair,
'til draft called him
away to war
and grief beyond compare.

She placed a rose
upon his chest
lying in casket there.
In uniform
with Silver Star,
he looked so debonair.

Sensuous
moments remembered
when azalea bush blushed,
flooding back yard with her naked scent
and pool of purple hues.

Tornado

rips lives apart
in the blink of an eye,

but people rally
and begin to plan
for the next chapter.

Super moon
sings a tune,
inspiring bashful couple looked upon as prude
to fantasize about romantic interlude,
wrapped up in an aura of luminescent bait,
luring them to escapades that will elevate
springtime nights
to new heights.

Super moon
sings a tune
to instigate cicadas' mating serenade
along with Mother Nature's promenade,
enjoyed from patio, away from all that grief
assaulting our senses with no sign of relief.
Think about
shunning pout!

DDPC Round 37 Prompt


Coronavirus rears its head
and gobbles down our spirit,
replacing joy with tons of dread,
because we cannot hear it.

Trapped at home with nothing to do
but wait for Apocalypse,
or so it seems with Satan's brew
producing paranoid trips.

The danger is real, but we will prevail
if we can stay on course against the gale.

Riding waves of old memories
across ocean
of times
past.

We all knew it
could not
last.

Who knew it would
go so
fast?
