Two Poems for You to Relax with

I am taking a break from telling my Grandma story. Here are two poems I wrote which I hope can help you relax for the week ahead.

THE  BEES

What   flowers   bloom   like  fine   golden   fleece?

Gently   swaying   are   the   young  palm  trees.

A   gusty  wind  blows   a million  yellow  petals   about,

terrifying   into   a  frenzy   the   busy  working   bees.

 

THE  CICADA

I  listen to a cicada singing where  the  woods  lie,

high-pitched,  exuberant,   joyful , and  free.

Suddenly  the cicada falls  silent ,  the  sun has  risen   high —

A   pair of orioles  sweep  over  the  shadow of a coconut tree.
