Starlight Serenade (Songs in Haiku)

l-337994I write early in the morn for moments of peace, and nature provides a lifetime of it, if only we wake to see it. As sunlight dawns, my heart wakes slowly, quietly – the spider webs of dreams still around my head. Breathe in, out. Opening my eyes to the light peeking through the shades. In writing there is a stillness, a solitary sadness, a loneliness. But in poetry there is beauty, life, light – the path to joy. To a kind of happiness. The words clearing away the cobwebs and opening my heart and mind like the buds of a new flower, unfolding her blooms to the sun.


Nature always wears the colors of the spirit -Ralph Waldo Emerson


Starlight Serenade (Songs in Haiku) 

Skin wet with sea air

toes dancing on sandy shore

wind of starry dream


So much joy in rain

droplets dance down my window

bringing life to soil


Dreaming light of hope

waves washing shells on soft sand

of earth island’s shore


Bright wind of spirits

moonsong suspended in air

*Listen to readings of my haiku poems Starlight Serenade and Heart Memory on Soundcloud! I loved making these short recordings and will undoubtedly be making more in the future. I hope you enjoy them, as this is the way I believe poetry is meant to be shared–as music.

Thanks for reading and listening. 🙂
