Free Verse Poem Be Here Now

In, “Free Verse Poem Be Here Now,” it’s human nature, to want to control ourselves out of fear, doubting thoughts, our insecurities.

In this, “Free Verse Poem Be Here Now,” and the digital art piece illustrates and asks for your presence, to be accountable. If one took time and broke it down into milliseconds, would it seem that our past, present, and future collide simultaneously? The mind plays tricks; we ponder over emotions, things, or people we have no control over. It’s a vain attack on our humanity. If we just stood in the here and the now, opened our eyes, breathe slow breaths and only absorb everything for what it is. It’s magic.

Free Verse Poem Be Here Now

Magic— is in the foothills
of our minds.
Our choices,
of our philosophy
in our past, present, future.
Magic ignites— when we focus on
the here and now.

free verse poem oreo's and thoughts image

Free Verse Poem Oreo’s and Thoughts

In, “Free Verse Poem Oreo’s and Thoughts,” I find myself restless. With thoughts buzzing like honey bees. Here and there finding a flower or a solution to calm thoughts in the dark of the night.

In, “Free Verse Poem Oreo’s and Thoughts,” I find something to appease the restlessness. As a single mom, so much crosses my mind, especially when the night falls and I am finally alone in mine room. My mind races with solutions, the what if’s or the could be’s. I contemplate getting up and grabbing something to calm me. To relax the anxious thoughts searching for resolutions.

Free Verse Poem Oreo’s and Thoughts

It is raining tonight, and I know
my thoughts are swirling as if a tornado.
Night sounds of crushing tires, horns and the
mulled voices of strangers on my cracked window.

Again I am the restless child wandering
through an entanglement, tossed web, of sheets and comforter.

Usually, I would hate it, consider
spending a sleepless night driving
to Walgreens for a sleep-aid or more

those awful to awesome Oreo flavors
that melt a mind into mush by morning
I’m trying to stay clear off of.

But tonight I have too much on my mind,
and Oreo’s and the pandemonium filtering through my window
fade out the crowding clamoring thoughts.

Poetry Silence Over Glittered Rooftops Image

Poetry Silence Over Glittered Rooftops

In, “Poetry Silence Over Glittered Rooftops,” I write about the morning staring through the window, observing what wasn’t happening and what was.

In, “Poetry Silence Over Glittered Rooftops,” it was like a still picture, but everything was moving. Like moving at a snail’s pace. But I had to slow my heartbeat, sip my coffee slowly and just watch. Everything was glittered and white, then the sun warms rooftops, little by little roofs change color. Brightness screams across the apartment complex, I’m amazed at the beauty. Entranced by steam rising into the atmosphere. Up. Then gone.

Poetry Silence Over Glittered Rooftops

Across the frozen rooftops,
shadows bend like fingers.
Stretching long and thin.
Scratching black lines across
glittering white.
I see him: billows of
clouds coming from
an open mouth,
legs are moving in a lyric beat.
The park stands quietly;
the trees bow to
blue in a windless morning,
a black crow swoops
at garbage of yesterday, and the
silent frost has hidden
all the footprints of children.

Free Verse Poem Fingers of the Dead

“Free Verse Poem Fingers of the Dead,” everything has history, everything has a story.

In, “Free Verse Poem Fingers of the Dead,” they walked upon planks of yesterday, laughter rose among the crashing waves. Ships fill with passengers wanting to create memories for the future. Luggage in hand with kisses of goodbye. They set sail.

Free Verse Poem Fingers of the Dead

I wait for the lapping, the little licks of
ocean meeting sand,
ocean meeting the shore,
scraping— granules back somewhere.

Barefoot. I watch the sun give up its last breath.

They stand there, from yesterday, upright pillars of existence,
now just fingers of the dead.

Shadow extensions of stories.

One day I won’t see them.

Free Verse Growth

Free Verse Growth; Nothing is Inevitable.


In, Free Verse Growth, we can’t change the unavoidable. As a mother of three daughters, I must live each day in the now moment. For, I do not know how long I will be here in this place, building, city, state, or the world. But I do know what to offer of myself to leave footprints for tomorrow and the future of my daughters, grandchildren, and their grandchildren’s children. A lineage of me, of my hopes, inspirations, and beliefs of goodness and GOD. Here’s to wishing you all a wonderfully blessed holiday!


image of free verse growth

Free Verse Growth

Flying, she slices the blue.
Swooping white, atmosphere.

The way flames swirl against edges
of visible and reaction. Color. Temperature.

But not like a fallen bird
To accept its wings were broken or
the snow-covered carcass of bones and hide.

Nothing is inevitable.

Yesterday was of laughter, today sober realities.
For every moment given, is one taken.

Growth is the reshaping.  Of thoughts. Heart and mind.

Free Verse Poetry Hibernation


 I write with “Free Verse Poetry Hibernation.” “With colors of fall,/the laughter of children collide in changes of the seasons.

In Free Verse Poetry Hibernation, This poem shares the observance of watching children from day to day and how the seasons play a role in their behavior. I believe the seasons have voices and stir the changes in one’s soul. Watching children throughout the year provide lenses for me to view not only the reactions that have offered inspiration but to experience life through their eyes.






Free Verse Poetry Hibernation

Hidden inside the groping,
fingers of fall, besides,
the old Pinewood apartments
we stand to wait for the yellow bus.
All year their excited voices rise and fall
like the changing leaves.
But here, they are quieted and still.
On the cusp of winter, cold air
penetrates like piercing ice sickles
in a foot thick of snow.
I insert my hands to the warmth
—Melting shivers, to the prickle of the wind,
and thankful for how peaceful they are,
Capable of silence. Sometimes
I think there is another place where life,
cannot change us.
Each day we inhale and stop as the
yellow bus rumbles and grinds itself
along with pavement.
The sun crawls from tree to tree and dances across,
the frosty green slivers.
The earth spins in the grinding pavement.

Free Verse Birthplace


You might enjoy, Free Verse Birthplace, a colorful description of Washington State, and how the people, concrete sidewalks collide with nature.

In this “Free Verse Birthplace,” I have lived in the state of Washington for over twenty years, and after all this time I am astounded at the changes of the seasons. The brilliant colors of fall. Mix this with the people that dwell within the concrete sidewalks and skyscrapers. It brings such a unique blend to the eyes and senses. Add a chill in the air, and sounds of a city buzzing.






Free Verse Birthplace

The place of high mountaintops under gray and blue sky
Where a city hums in the sleepless heritage of skyscrapers and pavement
her concrete streets smirks at the touch of delicate snowflakes

I am the grass and leafs
colorful like the mountains of Snoqualmie Ridge
The spectacle of her frolicking changes
Who sings of brilliant camouflage under the sun when the morning rises
Surrender to the land of beauty

Father would always fly over the steep ridges
encircling the snaking rivers of the wilderness
From whose arms embrace the tamarack of yellow
among the green pine.

Of the rugged terrain whose topped out heads shielded the creatures
and boxed houses from where he watches his neighbors
Of his fertile lawn of native skin
on whose head the lady next door awaits and watches rose hips turn brown
Of walking strangers that tread under her bright morning

The barking dogs that howl at the siren of the night
When all faces upon pillows are dreaming
and the homeless man scraping for scraps in cylinder garbage cans
howls for the wanderer intimidated of the night

The land of plenty food of Washington
Have they gone lost?
Leaving the children of the earth for the hideous wolves
Killing?
Rise from your hapless trance
For my place screams for hope
a true successor of light and love
and kindred souls and freedom

Free Verse Seattle This is You

I write the “Free Verse Seattle This is You.” “In a sleepless city of Seattle,/the homeless weep,” Speaking through the eyes and mouth of an abandon homeless woman. What do they see in those who walk by, those who sip their Starbuck’s coffee, in tailored suits? Mercy is in the compassion of humanitarians. I see them at the corners of streets, the hollow empty faces, the cardboard pieces scrawled with small words, begging.





Free Verse Seattle This is You

The distant look in the eyes of the homeless people
—like giving birth to a new camp on I-5.
You that walk by throwing glances on busy city streets like imperfect dreams.
—burning screams of the night like the red of a cigarette butt.
—Seattle, this is you.

Fragmented city of heritage in places I know not of all their names
—Lake Forest Park, Kent, Tacoma, like pillars of Gothic architecture.
The familial marks of faces under cylinder bonfires
The scars on the wrist of past brothers,
—like of black, woven like the dreadlocks of the leaders.
– Seattle, this you.

The tormented words of tattered face Streetman
-that urge you to place a twenty dollar in his silver tin
Seattle, the tears on the eyelids of my sister’s face,
-lost souls of a sleepless city, colored warriors of small words
Seattle, this is you in their concrete graves.

The beginning of stories I shall not finish
-the broken fundament of a splintered blade.
The city to grind my rhetorical absurdities
-abode to my stories of madness
-Seattle, this is you dwelling in me.

Crawling Ivy Hopeful – Free Verse Poem


Crawling Ivy Hopeful – Free Verse Poem

“If you do not enjoy time/it will escape you,” I reflect in this free verse poem “Crawling Ivy Hopeful.” with a reflective thinking of how fast time escapes us. How we fill each second with busyness, places to go, things to do. Stop! Enjoy true-self in the full bearing of whom you’re.





Look into the mirror, see the reflection of skin over muscle, and bone. GOD, how beautiful and intricate you’re! To one of a kind in thousands of others and color the world with your voice, your song, your seeds. I’m in hopes you enjoy this free verse poem and digital art piece and reflect on how unique and spectacular you are to me!


Crawling Ivy Hopeful – Free Verse Poem

The gate closes to a mystery.
Leaving us to ponder.

We’re crawling ivy hopeful,
in searching for an opening.

Today we happened between daylight and darkness,
and who broke free the lock of yesterday.

Soften white blooms of beauty.
Swaying green slivers of answers.

Brillant beauty in the smile of the sun.
Kiss lips with joy.

The flow of happiness
wash us into a tranquil blue sky

Let our contentment lead us to love
as the gate closes to a mystery

Like the laughter
Desiring happiness
Desiring peace
Satisfaction with self
We’re the crawling ivy hopeful
