X for Xanthous

One yellow flower
waves in the open fields
bowing according to the tune
among the sea of green;
lone yellow flower has no one to blame
and it seeks none to praise
for it knows all life comes in
when the conditions are right;
lone yellow flower knows
death comes in like the wind;
lone yellow flower
is never alone.

W for Warmth

~*Warmth of Colors*~

When the sun finds its way
Behind a dark cloud
And that’s where it seems to stay
And won’t come back out

When the rain just seems to pour
And there is no end in sight
And a storm leads to one more
And many sleepless nights
It’s so good to know
I’ve got the warmth of a friend
A safe place to go
Again and again.

V for Vivacious


I vow to live today;
As night turns day and day gives life,
I vow to give today.

I vow to love today;
As the hands of love unlock the cage,
I'll free a love today.
I vow to dream today;
As the reveries flow through my soul,
I'll be a stream today.

I vow to play today;
As the child plays on without regret,
I'll seize the day today.

I vow to shine today;
As the sun shines on despite the rain,
I'll take a chance today.

Umbraged Sky

~*Umbraged Sky*~

Watching, Waiting,
Willful, Willing,
Wanting, Wailing,
Waning, Staining
Hoping, Joking,
Barely floating,
Eating, Meeting,
Loosing, Boozing,
Rarely choosing ,
Waiting for
the rain.

U for Umber

(Umber: Brownish Red)

Red is a sunset
Blazing and bright.
Red is feeling brave
With all your might.
Red is a sunburn
A spot on your nose.
Sometimes red, is a red red rose.
Red squiggles out when you cut your hand.
Red is a brick
And the sounds of a band.
Red is hotness
You get inside
When you’re embarrassed
And want to hide.
Fire-cracker, fire-engine
Fire-flicker red –
And when you’re angry
Red runs through your head.
