Poetry Quadrille

Virtual Birthday

T'is my Birthday
And from afar
Friends and Family
Virtually Embrace.

Cannot draw near
as the sickle
of the minuscule
could harm.

Yet Human innovation
Through ether
or postal routes
Allows love's flow.

Feeling blessed
In anxious times
Warmed by sentiments,
all that's kind. 

It really is my Birthday, but was also inspired by the dverse quadrille prompt ’embrace’ – do check them out.

Summers Morning

Glorious Morning,
domed by blue,
enwrapped in dew.

A gentle breeze's
fresh embrace, 
embodies grace. 

Sunlight scatters
through the trees
and sadness flees.

In that moment
spirit rises
as nature sympathises.

In the bleak mid winter its hard to recall the warmth and comfort of the summer. I came across this poem scribbled on a scrap of paper from back in August last year. It reminded me that time will inevitably shift us back to days like this and that lifted my spirits. So I thought I would share in the hope it will do the same for you.

Submitted for a lovely exercise on a blog I recently found – check them out it seems to be a lovely community – dVerse.
