Can you hear it?


Can you hear it?

The sounds of birds

Their sweet melodies wafting

Through my windows

Caressing my ears

Making me do a happy dance

Around my living room

Then, without warning

A flurry of whooshing sounds

As they fly high into the air

And dive into the trees

Going back to their nests

And their young ones.

  1. Ode to a Butterfly

    Amid life’s cruel and bitter Sting, their lives a jewel on delicate wing so subtle that we scarcely heed the beauty of her simple creed. On wings of lace and color fair, with modest grace, she takes to air. Into my life she flew one day to be my wife forever. I pray so happy I can only sigh, my lovely lady butterfly.

  2. Here is one of my favorite:
    by J. Godwin
    Tubac AZ
    (Winner 1984 Colorado Poet of the Year)

    he shuffles down the alley
    amid garbage and foul stench
    tattered shoes display life’s stains
    and grey sky becomes his crown

    tall tottering buildings
    hover like mountains on all sides
    as he trudges through valleys of despair
    passing greasy windows with style

    the staircase shudders
    and torn wallpaper sighs
    as he continues his quiet journey
    onward to a noble destiny

    the door closes with resignation
    omitting all sounds of sorrow
    inside the room is damp and dark
    concealing poverty’s sinister face

    soon faint light cuts the gloom
    and a quickened pulse betrays his heart
    as he caresses the cover of a book
    held in his wrinkled hands

    ‘The Tragedy of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark’
