A Poem of Friendship


A Poem of Friendship
Ellen Apple:
Years melt
Distances shrink
We giggle and snort
What must others think
You knew my heartache
I felt your pain
We always promised
I will see you again
Now we trade updates
On computer and phone
The methods don't matter
Your heart is my home
Sandi Corbett:
My heart is open
My tears roll free
We laugh
We grieve 
For all to see
Yet all are blind
Without eyes to see
Your heart is my home

shhh

shhh
we must quiet be 
not rustle the grass
the shy unicorn
is about to pass
the creek 'tis singing
and violets first bloom
all point to her visit
not later but soon
the mowing can wait
no motors will hum
dandelion and clover
the yard overrun
she comes in the night
by light of the moon
daintily nibbles
on natures best bloom
the wee folk whisper
when her visit is nigh
you can hear their song
in the warm breeze sigh
spirit will listen
and pure heart will hear
when nature awakens
the magic is near

Blessings This Day

Blessings this day I send to you
'Cross land and stormy sea
That for this moment at this hour
All your worries would cease to be

Wishes I make upon falling star
Floating across the Milky Way
For joy to be the song you hum
No matter the trials of the day

Prayers from my trembling soul rise up
(know your name is ever engraved there)
Angels whisper in sweetest tone
All our nights and days to share

Some Poems

My moon, my lady, my mystical muse
Your fullness I celebrate each month
Drawing in your energy. basking in your light
Shy you are being for this Full Worm Moon
Coyly shielding yourself in vaporous mist
Clouds come down to the earth 
Lying heavy upon my mountain
I still celebrate you this stubborn March
Though hidden you may be from my eyes
My Spirit still sees you clear

~Ellen Apple 03/04/2015


Magic

I am looking for magic my muse
Amid the chaos and grief
After all the gritty real life news
My spirit has need of relief

Calm the turmoil that plagues my mind
And blessed quietude descend
Comfort enfold leave torment behind
Foul attitudes to beauty amend

A fearsome task not for the meek
To alter the course of the day
As respite and renewal I seek
I shall prevail come what may

Connections

Searching for divine
Among the sublime  
Come to me 
Serendipity
Appearing on a 
Gossamer wind
Here for a moment 
Gone again
Connecting what 
Is meant to be 
A sacred melding 
You and me

A Fearsome Thing

A fearsome thing 
This woman's heart
Deep and full of storms
Fire and ice
Battle strong
Tender in a loving embrace

Her tears burn hot
Her laughter soars
Her silence dooms
Wild and chained 
By life's demands
Surrender never a choice

Defy the norms
Was not her aim
When first her soul
Took flight
Her heart rules each step
Her yearnings know no rest

Cradled in her being
Sheltered from the world
What shapes her life
Not seen or understood
So many expectations
Pummel her daily

~ Ellen Apple 01/27/2015

The Sin-Eater

Drink full of life
Gulp and swallow the all
The joy and pain mingle
And lie replete 
Refreshed
Full of hope
Dreams
Dread
Feel the truth 
Rest in the nght
To rise again with 
Vigor comes light
The sin-eater has come
and gone
