The Sky Was Blue

Poem By Diana Rosser

The sky was blue today.
Sun light glinted on my eye lids and bare stretching branches.
Along the railway embankment, though it is early spring,
the spindly matted trees, silhouetted against the cloudless sky,
glistened a golden russet red.
Melodious song rung out from the hedgerows and,
as I walked,
the wind caressed my face.
Today the sky was blue and nature held my heavy heart
in her tender warm embrace.

I loved the last two lines of this poem.
Lovely images, peaceful.

He left
like water

This Day

It is morning and the promise of day
sweeps across the sky.
Meadow grasses oscillate gently in the
dolce wind.

I Am Here

Supposing I became the cool breeze that slipped
through your early morning window brushing your day and cheek awake,
would you know me then wrapped around you holding you safe?
Supposing I became the gentle sun that broke your first steps

The New Bedroom

The new bedroom,
which I built in my head
for what seemed an endless time waits,
with full boxes for her return.

The Shady Path

If your reckless mind unobserved
wanders into the deep dark sea,
then swim towards the lapping shore
and walk towards the tall oak tree

Inside Me Was The Stillness

Woven, high between bare branches
rooks nests gather where new growth sprouts,
amidst the stillness inside me.
