Strings Attached

Posted on


I look at a Facebook photo of a baby sleeping on the indentation of a guitar as his young father strums it quietly. I remember playing the guitar against my protruding belly when I was pregnant for each of my sons. More than sound, this was a bonding between two worlds, still unknown to each other. Love flowed through layers of skin and muscle with every note, every lyric carefully crafted from the wonder, anticipation and unity. This was and is my poetic hum.  I ponder the picture again, slightly worried about this tiny bundle nestled rather precariously in the crook of a wooden instrument. Could she slip off? Possibly…but only into loving arms.


love moves beyond walls

love is a constant murmur

love never silent

Pink and Pretty

Posted on

Fragile hearts, content

To dangle delicately

Trusting in the mulch

To cushion leaps of faith


Mighty oak throws shadows

Over the pink and pretty

A tantalizing two step

To mock daylight’s dreams


Brave hearts sway

To the pasodoble

Embracing nature’s dance

Oblivious to the darkness


Patti Wolf is our guest blogger for Poetics at dVerse and she has asked us to write a microworld poem, inspired by nature.  The bleeding heart plant in my garden never ceases to amaze me with it’s intricate design.
