Three Quiet Poems

The Python Sea

I love the trees
with its twigs that nest
the harmonic sounds
of a magpies cry
from stark white gums
beneath a chameleon sky
the sunsets
with slight burnt colours of rusty
corrugated roofs
Light glares at those who dare
to stare
as it bares itself naked
the sun melts
into the wet mouth
of a python sea

Moon Love

bonfire sparks of light
reflect across the fall of night
prisms of starlight
blink in and out
as the moon lies
in sensuous curve
for lovers eyes

A New Day

pink ribbons of blossom
tie the knots of green buds with bows
petaled in curls of sunlight
splashes of play fill
puddled shadows
the sounds of kookaburra laughter
pegs the morning on a line of fresh day
blowing without a care
an electricity of breeze
blows the blue sky
into a new day


  1. Great series my friend! they each carried their own unique emotion while flowing so well from one to the next. Enjoyed the dark to light sentiments. Well penned! ~ Rose

  2. These are all gorgeous poems Beez!

  3. Beautiful, original imagry. Loved the contrast of night and day.

  4. really liked the feeling and color of positivity pouring out of this.

  5. These are all wonderful, but I especially like Moonlight -- wow! :)

  6. "A New Day" is an example of poetry as artwork. Instead of dulling a reader with tedious personal gripe and confession and pseudo-profundity (which is most poetry these days), this poem breathes with an aesthetic pulse. Also, a subtle surrealism comes through here, capturing the unusual implicit in the ordinary.

  7. "puddled shadows"- in my humble opinion, two words which were meant to put next to one another.
    Just a tiny part of a beautiful poem.
    Thanks for all your kindness too,
