A Ruse

It cannot be April! How did that happen? Time flieswhether or not you’re having fun. I hope all is well with everyone and that 2015 is being kind and gentle. I’ve finally recovered from a nasty flu that seemed at times to have taken up permanent residence. I had planned on being back much sooner, but I'm here now and I look forward to catching up with you all.

A Ruse

You come and go
lightly
like a firefly in the garden
on a soft summer night
when sweet scents
keep company
with a whiskey moon

there is a history
perhaps
or maybe just a memory
playing tricks

You come and go
lightly
and I scarce recall
if you were the wind
or the kite

maybe just a memory
playing tricks

Murmurs

Tucked within the season is a calm

a whisper of flakes brushing chill panes
in pallid light on snowy afternoons

a settling … a sigh of memory ...

a duvet of snow-feathers
to snuggle neath frosted stars
and December's Long Nights moon

I want to wish all my blogging friends and their families
 peace, love, joy and laughter for the upcoming holiday season. 
I'll see you next year!
