Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossom

Sweet fragrant flowers
Softly decorate my memories
Cherry blossoms in bloom
Hope renews in each petal
for today’s wishes to
become tomorrow

Precious One

Precious one

Without a word
you climbed
into heaven
& forever
I longed to
chase after you
I must stay
here on earth

written in loving memory of a precious child ~ 12 years gone, but never forgotten ~ her love carries on

Bitter Roots

17 - 1 (1)

Man betrayed nature
Bitter roots in poisoned soil
Prayed for redemption

Jump for Joy

dolphins sun sea sky

If the journey of one thousand miles begins with one step,
then I will paint a picture worth far more than a thousand words
where your one shot of happiness is guaranteed to last a lifetime
with laughter as the best medicine so you won’t die of boredom
while I throw every cliche in the book at you just to see your winning smile
light up a room with a view as big as an azure sky on a crystal clear day
where everything is fine and dandy within the mischievous twinkle in your eyes
spying what lies beyond the mountain of faith in nature’s grand design
I see you jump for joy smiling as the last cliche ends for better poetry to begin
And your love is felt in the northern star’s warmth calmly radiating over me

(c) every other cliche combined

I hope you smiled while reading this ~ sometimes it’s fun to be weird while writing πŸ˜‰

Starry Night

Starry Night

Specks within dance as dust lit upon a sun-ray
whose lustrous beauty penetrates silhouette
shadows shifting with the wind-driven willows

Molecules wander, vanishing in darkness,
reborn in glittering optics which flourish
amidst blushing amber sunsets
mirrored in Halcyon’s tranquil ocean

Driftwood floating in twilight’s shadow,
I anticipate breath drawn in colors of night air
I gently lie down beneath weeping willows
seconds after the horizon defeats earth’s sun

I paint van Gogh in celebrations of belonging

Only then am I tempted from this leafed canopy
for fleeted footsteps jaunt me into the universe
where rolling meadows emerge boundless
enlightened by revelations of the evening’s first star

as an owl nocturnally haunts in the night
I am instinctively calm in this darkness
to trace Cassiopeia in child-like simplicity
while specks within dance as dust of a newborn star

I cradle in the Milky Way’s bosom
to nurse on subtle starlit blackness
I breath in the peaceful night air
to fill my lungs with cosmic dust

And, as my mind ponders this perplexity
my heart fills with wonderment
softly lulling me toward slumber

(c) s l jennings “Starry Night” poem

Pure tender passion like a white-winged dove

She spread her wings to cover him withΒ love

He raced reckless winds to receive fire’s kiss

Cast in flames fervent inΒ eternal bliss

New love forged for more than endurance

Their eyes metΒ connectedΒ in assurance

Visions empowered to join together

Such love could outlast life’s harshest weather

To take flight on dreams of possibility

To realize God in each other

They couldΒ be one in love

Would they?
