A Gentle Rain

Flowering Dawn

Charmed Chaos

A sign
in eastern sky
early rising spring sun
birth of a new season crowning
on the
horizon, a shimmering light
of rays as beauty bursts
forth with lovely
flowers

Author’s Note: For Colleen’s Weekly poetry challenge, we are given two words and then must use synonyms only of those words. This week’s words are: Origin and Write. Lastly, we are only to write certain forms of poetry with a syllable count. I chose to write a Butterfly Cinquain and used Birth for Origin and Sign for Write. Come join in the fun!

I’d Rather Learn You – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

I’d Rather Learn You

I haven’t read them all,
but I sure have read a few,
Socrates and Plato,
Nargajuna and Descartes,
Mill, Hume and Whitehead
not forgetting Marx,
and my, Zizek’s such fun,
they stir the moribund mind
though a little less than poets do
because Rumi stirs my soul,
but I’d rather learn you
than read all the libraries that are
because my, you stir my heart.
