Theodora (Theo) Onken

(Washington State)


The bougainvillea are blooming
Everywhere Spring is leaving her mark
Vestiges of beauty embroidering the landscape
Morning breaks into it's hot pinks~gone 'tis the dark;
Flashing it's bashful sky ever upwards
Eventually lapping itself into a cobalt blue
With nary a cloud dancing- in thin air
SpringTide arrives~brand new;
Time ticks the moments off~waving in afternoon
Windows of lemon yellow~ simply glow
The sun, in all of it's radiance
Puts on a glittery jewel of a show;
Soon twilight arrives a bit dimmer
The birds and their song they still sing
The mountains trees in full bloom
Shadows that the approaching night brings;
Dusk calls for a return to sweet sleep
The whole world prepares to tuck itself in
A repose for Mother Earth has arrived
Slumbering in stillness-'til a new Spring day begins again;

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
