A Demanding Woman

Poem By Velvet Thorn

A challenge was offered
A task of love
An exposure of self.
You accepted.

With staggering ease and grace
The vessel was filled
With images of beauty
And song.

Unlike athletes of Olympus
You're not allowed to rest
On your laurels.

Oh, No!

Where's my pen,
I need a pen,
I can't believe its lost again!


Your smile kills me
Stabs me like a knife
Darts from you like a laser
Straight into my soul

Black-Eyed Susan

Call me Rudbeckia
(Becky for short)
A black-eyed susan at night
Petals luminous

To See Or Not To See

I see a young boy
eyes closed
fingertips searching
Pretending he knows not what he does.

Late Summer Sonnet

Where did the Columbines and Lupines go
The Alliums that stood so straight and neat
The raspberries with all their bright red glow
That children did consider such a treat?
