Thursday, September 1

Look!

Adapted from an original image by Tess Kincaid
Look to the sun
to lift your spirits, make you smile.
Look to the sun,
whose daily toil is never done
but stretches out full many a mile
in order that it may beguile.
Look to the sun!


Thanks to Imaginary Garden, I've been beguiled into writing a Rondelet, a poetic form which will be explained for you if you click on their name above. 
And while on the subject of sun, here are three Lanturnes, for good measure, with thanks to Margo Roby for introducing them to me - or me to them!
Sun
shining
overhead
creates inner
peace.

The
ripples
of shadows
help to soften
glare.

Their
blanket
will cover
until morning.
Sleep!
And now I've added the lot to Poetry Pantry, as waste not want not!

  2. Very apt for the first day of September. The sun at this time of year is rather special, if rare.

  4. You have added a lot indeed. A lovely blending of French and Japanese cultures. The Rondolet was spot on with your hard working sun, and your lanturne is brilliant in the sun and softly glowing while children sleep. Wonderful.
