All the Right Ingredients #poetry #photography

sun and wave foam

 

missing is your smile

like a warm summer ray

when the doves come to nest

and the squirrels jump and play

empty are my hands

once filled with sweet dough

melty good your cookies

 so hard to let you go

unfilled is the space

that lies within my heart

never can replace love

that grew my early start

warm are the memories

that bring you close to mind

angels sing your praises

your actions always kind

needing still your spirit

to warm the bitter taste

sunny was your countenance

on cold blustery days

missing still your smile

like a warm summer ray

when the doves come to nest

and the squirrels jump and play

*

Who is absent from your life that made such a difference?

Today’s prompt at Poet’s United is Absence

 

 

 

 

The Oak

whatever 049

The Oak

stands firm
in heavy storms
it never bends
it may seem worn

It

may show signs
of many a trial
the oak’s kind heart
remains unbarred

The Oak

is steady
when children are small
it spreads its branches
there is room for all

The Oak

stands stalwart
as time goes by
arms wide open

when someone cries

The Oak is

faithful to its own
the source of love

long lasting like home

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
