Poetry 365: Spring Rising

Spring Rising

By: Meena Rose

It’s been one of those weeks;
You know, where you wonder if your
Life drama was a figment of your
Imagination.

Changes are sweeping;
Discomfort and unrest, a flood rising;
Greece made history – Syriza’s time to soar;
Egypt’s remembrance of its Arab Spring went awry.

Yet, over here there’s been much talk
Of deflated balls and the State of the Union;
Chips, dip and salsa readied for the Superbowl;
What else might happen while we’re distracted?

To be fair, I am not sure and neither
Do I place bets but one thing’s certain;
My spring is upon me and I eagerly ready for life;
Out of the ashes of hurt, I rise.

Poetry 365: A Few of My Scariest Things

A Few of My Scariest Things

By: Meena Rose

I openly admit, I am easy to scare;
If it looks like a snake – plastic, cloth or real;
If it goes bump when the night is dark;
If it goes boo when I’ve been immersed in quiet;

Also, when mystery slime says hello to my face;
Large crowds with no exit in sight;
An MRI tunnel – loud and impersonal;
Loss of control and gravity’s free fall.
