31 days into October

garden peas at
a rolling boil
effervescent
independence

sun rays daisy
across the clouds
fingers outstretched
light penetrates

29 days into October

Jenny wren popped out
from a toasty beech hedge
bee hovered above
.
testing yellow for pollen
both look for tidbits

Can I ask does anyone know of a short form of poetry written over 4 lines with 4 syllables in each line. I call this form a ‘quad’ . Thank you.

28 days into October

pale
white moon
in infinity blue
my far reaching dreams –
peace

26 days into October

feathery clouds
drift in the blue
marmalade leaves
tumbling down
.
buzzards circle
above the trees
I sit in awe-
this universe

26 days into October

flat bottomed clouds
layer away
into distance-
foaming white

lit by the
sun
gold in azure

finely combed tufts
carried on cool lofty breeze
beckoning my flight

into brightness
into lightness
where I can soar
I can be free
.

25 days into October

bright pink high viz
begonia
shock in dark soil
just before dusk

24 days into October

illuminated
leaves overhang
the traffic lights
red, amber green

23 days into October

shall I do housework
or draw a heart in the dust-
after all it’s my home
