A Fine Discovery

Sitting on the shore
feeling inconsequential
in its vast presence,
the surface sparkles
like a rare jewel
just discovered

Dragonflies entertain
like tiny jets
Damselflies with their
blue, iridescent wings
gracefully flit about
relatives by nature

Tiny threads of peace 
weave into the marrow
of our souls

A great fortune
to play a part with nature
in this moment of existence –
to discover such a gem

Life’s Precious Gems (A Nonet)

I’ve recently learned a new form of poetry, called a Nonet,
which consists of nine lines.

The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables,
the third line seven syllables, etc… until line nine finishes with one  syllable.


I’ll keep you forever and always

staying true to daily actions

and to every word I say,

for you are a golden

jewel in my life

and in my heart

I love you
