Sprigs of Green

Sprigs of Green
By: Addison Byrne

Sprigs of green waited to be eaten,
Sweet cotton innocently grazing
As if rolling across like foam on the sea

Air pushed the sprigs of green,
Maybe one would be lucky to escape
But the pink noses will likely sniff it out…

If not today,
Then tomorrow

Don’t worry sprigs, you’ll grow again

Angels are all Around

Angels are all Around
By: Addison Byrne

Scanning a page, I happened to see,
Something beautifully expanse, and completely free

Angels are among us, scribing our heart,
Will we write happy? Will we write sad? Angels don’t care,
As long as we start

Trophies, endowments, awards…all are the same,
No gender nor race exclusion, we aren’t here for fame

It started with Belsbror, Sunshine and more,
Amazing examples of stars and comments that stood at my door

I dove into countless clouds of stories and poems of angels unique,
then found myself “Angel Nominated” by Petite Magique

A kindred spirit and fellow bard,
Her blog is spectacular, you can tell she works hard

So if you are given something sweet and unexpected,
The rules are to thank the person and fully respect it

Find a way, that comes from the angel in you,
to pass on the gift of angels…as it just might be past due.

……

My angel award nominations go to two fellow survivors and are:

The Slow Heal

and

Love this!!

Loneliness woke me up,

Encouraging desperation,

When I tried to make it stop,

I looked outside for inspiration.

What I saw was unfortunate,

Showing the departure of hope,

Positive feelings in a debate,

I have to ask you, why mope?

Darker you are this morning,

Seems heavy with sorrow,

Perhaps, not to your liking,

Carrying the burden, I know,

Why, O, why you do this?

When you can stay there,

Is there something amiss?

That you do not even care?

Floating in the thin air,

Loving the view below,

You see me in despair,

In misery, you know.

Cannot watch you gray longer,

I feel your temptation to go away,

Do leave, be gone somewhere,

Keep me dry and empty today.

But, you seem not the type,

To balk, defy, or torment,

Oh, yes, the time is ripe,

To unleash your torrent.

I call out to you, right now,
