Farewell and Hello! – (NaPoWriMo Day 30!)

And so to the last day of NaPoWriMo! The prompt? To write a poem of farewell.
Of course, this may be the end of April and poetry month,
but tomorrow is a new month and a new day,
so who knows what that may hold for us all?
How very exciting!

Do hope you all enjoy this – and a HUGE Thank You for all the likes and follows.
It is a privilege to have you pop in and say ‘Hi’ and a pleasure to share in your writings.
Long may we all stay bound by our love of words, meaning and purpose.
Hopefully, this is just the beginning…and I’ll see you all tomorrow…or soon! 🙂

So, to the poem:

A breath I breathe,
My final heave,
Farewell to the world.

Spirit’s stress,
Sweet caress,
Life so torn and twirled.

Return I will,
Before the trill
Of night birds singing hurled.

To write my way,
With poem’s sway,
And words so soft and curled.

Sing with Purpose – NaPoWriMo Day 16

People came and sang with me,
Voices heightened, voices free,
Songs of hope and songs of praise,
Songs that touched the soul amazed.

They came in groups, they came alone,
Some came with wings and some with stone,
But all came breathing hard and fast,
Waiting for their note to last.

To reach on high for heights divine,
To take them far, with hearts in line,
Find places pure, where souls are free,
To follow their eternity.

Joining others, sharing depth,
In shady courts with guileless breath,
Meeting those who speak their truth,
In language strong and full of youth.

For all there know to be their best,
To shine and reach for light so blessed,
You listen for the echo deep,
Of resonating sound and reap

Tones so pure, beyond our ken,
Music made for souls of men,
Feel their purpose, know their way,
Guiding strong through every day.

Light and laughter, love perplexed,
Each moment shared endures the next,
To rise above small, petty cares,
And take the chance that’s offered there.

Yes! We will!
