A Cardinals Decree

A Cardinals Decree short poem

Uploaded by Keith Wilson

As I wandered embracing woods unknown,
sharing breaths with silent trees alone.
The scent of moss and leaves awoke,
arching limbs above me spoke.
Lone cardinal settled on pine above,
singing his crimson song I love.
Then gently fell a forests gift,
a small red feather did upon me drift.
And as this story now being penned,
A cardinal smiles outside my den.

Laetitia’s Decree: “I, Happiness, Happen”

Laetitias Decree: I, Happiness, Happen short poem

I, Laetitia – I decree I happen! In the soul’s sublimate and subliminal state, Whom the twists of fate misshapen, I unwind! Come! Seek me! Visit! I grant visas and vistas with no use-by date! Soul-twisted ones! Stay or transit
