two poems

As promised, here are my first two poems for the month. Also, I couldn’t resist including a saying from Rumi. His wisdom is beyond words.

Haiku

It’s February,

The month of lovers and friends

Spread some love today.

 

Pantoum

Everything looks small from here.

Hills are flat as glass.

Travel—effortless and light.

I am above all struggle.

 

Hills are flat as glass.

Crossing rivers—easy as a thought.

I am above all struggle.

Flying is the only way to go.

 

Crossing rivers—easy as a thought.

Travel—effortless and light.

Flying is the only way to go.

Everything looks small from here.

 

Rumi

You knock at the door of reality

You shake your thought-wings

Loosen your shoulders

And open.

 

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
