The Mind and I

The Mind and I

Like a trap wrapped around a fuzzy piece of yarn,
It engulfs me, holds me tight.
I try to speak but it softly lulls me back into its trap,
Silently holding my tongue ‘til my words disappear
Into a labyrinth of sleep.

NEW POETRY BOOK

 

POETRY

It’s hard to believe, but I finally did it!  Here is my first published book of poetry – available on Amazon.com .  This book is forty years in the making.  But, in the meantime I kept writing poems and sharing them with different internet poetry websites and here on my own blog, which are also included in the book.  If you are interested in reading it I have a free promotion from tomorrow until Friday (April 17-19).   When just getting started as an author it is difficult to get established without any reviews or prior public exposure so all reviews would be greatly appreciated!  Oh, you can also get either an ebook or a paperback!

 

Here is the only villanelle in my book which I’d like to share with dVerse  <a href=”https://brudberg.me/category/dverse/

I Really Believe You Were Meant For Me

-a villanelle-

I really believe you were meant for me.
When two hearts meet and join as one
There is no denying our unity.

Together, the sun shines eternally
As our fingers touch in unison,
I really believe you were meant for me.

The moon is aglow shining on the sea
And dancing with you, Oh what fun!
There is no denying our unity.

Our souls came together the day that we
Climbed the mountain and declared it won.
I really believe you were meant for me.

Remember the day that we laughed in glee
As we called each other honey bun?
There is no denying our unity

Together we be for eternity
As God’s gift for a job well done.
I really believe you were meant for me,
There is no denying our unity.

Spring Leaves

Green leaves so soft, so bright, so tender,

Emerging in the first blush of spring,

Bringing forth newness of life,

So fragile, so frail, ever so gentle

With the first bloom of life,

Just waiting to strengthen their sensitive young growth

Into glowing strong armours of emerald delights,

Swaying amidst the elements of love both seen and unseen,

Sharing with nature the joys of being.

Suzie

Calico she is

Mottled orange and black with white

That’s my sweet Suzie

Gremlins on the bed

Glowing lights of eerie cast

Where did my cats go?
