"Another Today..."

"Another Today..."

A Poem by Chris

I wandered Emma Joy Green’s “Words”.


I wandered Emma Joy Green’s “Words”.




She asked we respond with our own instead of reviewing hers.  So…


“Another Today…”


Lavender and honeysuckle


arms enfolding dreams -

held close and tight

as the mind awakens to "nows".


Deep breath -

deep, deep …breath

tasting…tasting…the senses


past tomorrows

through all the yesterdays


…a softly whispered "Good Morning…"

echoes out to cross the world.


The eyes still glisten

still smile -


as feet touch the floor

…sunrise awaits, as it always has -

always will


and coffee's need is deep

and earned.


Windows beckon

…"looking-through" -

into the glass of the world -

and touching the tears of due

silently slipping down, down

and down…inside

and sometimes outside too.


Coffee mist rising to transparency,

ears remembering silence -

mind reliving its echoes



Life continues…

Reverence combined with moments reflected in a day, or days or the days not yet to come our way. These moments are everything and yet nothing of what is today

So life continues, but the memories don't fade.

Absolutely beautiful. Rhythmic words in sound and in meaning that bring images to mind of the everyday, the today’s. THe meaningful todays.

Ya gotta try - its all we have - ya know?
Windows beckon
…"looking-through" -
into the glass of the world -
and touching the tears of due
silently slipping down, down
and down…inside
and sometimes outside too..............

Oh my .. outside too. sigh.
Something many of us
can relate to.

I stopped making coffee
straight away, instead
I go out and feed the birds
and assorted critters
that come..
they are so needy
and I need them !
I don't remember silence
just the voices of
loved ones, who no longer
Time hasn't healed wounds
they are open and salty.
Nightmares stay fresh
and I curse, and mumble
at myself ..
Still there is hope..
somewhere inside-
and I do want
more !

EmmaJoy..is such a giving soul
and she sees and appreciates the world
and reaches out to greet, smiling
She is the bright part of my day !
and I love her ..

A wonderful and heart-full
comment to her WORDS..

Wow! Chris and Emmajoy- collaborative match made in Heaven...so shreddingly beautiful! Guitars, flutes, piano heard...wake up and smell the coffee, both poets bid us..."looking through" the glass of the world-we are all Alice. 'I've got blisters on my fingers", and they bleed. Organic and elemental and spiritual...Master Class.
