Poeming: Lessons.

photo by me, jle 2012
This was from another poetry prompt during Poem A Day April at Poetic Asides blog, and the prompt was to write a dark poem or write a light poem, or both.


Bright sun through leaves 

tree shadows on snow

bird on the nest in the

middle of a storm.

Life keeps telling me

that contrast makes things beautiful

Life keeps showing me

I can weather any storm

Life keeps pointing out

the import of a counterpart

for darkness has taught me

to love the light.

Barely Poeming: Laundry laundry.

Laundry laundry 
on the line
you'll smell fresh,
you'll dry fine
(Please keep the bird 
poop off of mine)
