Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

urge

08 August 2013

urge

 

lightning smiles

as

darkness drizzles

 

into storm.

Drums

begin to pound.

 

Old rhythms,

so

strange, familiar.

 

I listen

as

it calls to me

 

but answer

not

the primal urge.

four forms one image

23 July 2013

Four forms one image

 

imagine eating

a snow cone with your eyes closed

root beer and cherry

 

 

with eyes closed,

eat

flavored snow cone

 

 

don’t look

just bite, chew, slurp

half root beer, half cherry,

experience, sense this snow cone

fully.

 

 

no peeking,

use other senses,

to enjoy

a snow cone,

taste, texture, smell, and listen

experience it.

wind dancers

22 July 2013

wind dancers

 

moonless night,

black,

strangely quiet

 

nothing stirs

this

eerie silence

 

’til the wind

winds

through sleepy trees

 

inviting

the

dance to begin.

inspiration

17 July 2013

Inspiration

 

a spark, a

nudge,

that inner urge

 

sometimes a

word,

thought, idea

 

an image,

prompt,

that little push

 

from within,

your

mind, heart, and soul

 

from without

the

universe speaks

 

where do you

find

inspiration?

Hot Cool Drift

14 July 2013

Hot Cool Drift

 

Sweltering

in

my apartment

 

listening

to

some cool smooth jazz

 

as my thoughts

drift

lazily on
