Two poems | by Ken Allan Dronsfield

​Earth Cries; Heaven Smiles

White rose petals gently fall

floating down to bare ground

lilacs open inhaling the sun

essence of both waft above.

ladybugs dancing leaf to leaf

dragonflies sit alert on a post

robins skip on fresh cut lawns

old cats nap in sunlit windows

granddads reflect in old chairs

kids laugh playing in the yard

the earth cries; heaven smiles

a journey ends, a new begins.

Rust and Prattle

A mumbling hum 

from a conveyance

paths grows narrow 

to less stable minds

ambivalent posers 

and closers scheming

flocks of starlings 

roost in leafless oaks

stone Prince stands 

proud on a muddy hill

dead rose petals 

blow across graves

wrought iron gates 

disintegrate in rhyme

lichen and moss 

on forgotten headstones

in a soft whisper 

old souls just rust away.
