Entry Title: To @Possums
Entry:

to the conversations held in hushed messages
and those not-so-hushed
to the gifts and praise
and words of support
to the kind gestures of anonymity
and outright gestures, as well
to excited shouts of "look what i found!"
and "we both like this thing!"
an expression of gratitude and the warmth of friendship

may it follow you in your day-to-day
and remind you that
you are cared for.

Entry Title: The Scent of Spring

Entry:

Sunlit days grew longer
as her spot on the globe tilted its way towards a star

And she smiled to her cat and said
look how nice the weather is
(she licked and groomed away old fur)

She slid the metal of the latch off the back door
to push it open
(trotted over, paws rhythmically patting the floor)

Gave a happy sigh
trying to express somehow the wild joy she felt
at the world persevering and living once more

(pink nose pressed against the screen
head lifting up with each breath
as she tried to take everything in)

Expanded her chest to breathe deeply
to pull within every molecule of renewed air

It smelled like
(robins and soil and last year’s grass decomposing
a blue jay and three mourning doves
hint of crocuses growing and a warm breeze, dew on leaves)

Entry Title: In the course of time, Ode

Entry:

Oh, fall! Kaleidoscope of colors.
Your turning trees aflame the foggy, sluggish days.
Behold of the glistening brilliant fall of leafs
reflecting the spooky, moonlit smile of ripe fruits!
Essence of the ever-changing winds
blustery moving through the harvested braches;
overblown and weary.

Guardian of fondest memories, forerunner,
turning point.

Oh, spring! Bouquet of life!
Your fertile earth gives birth to new beginnings.
Observe the warm cheers embosoming the blooming soul
energizing sealed buds to frolic beneath the sky.
Essence of the sun-drenched breath
gently carrying love on mischievous breeze;
teeming and briskly.

Bearer of radiant hope, forerunner,
turning point.

Entry Category: A season's POV
Entry Title: Spring's wakening

I rose up one morning / after a long sleep,
looked over the horizon / to greet the gentle breeze.
It playful wandered further / accompanied by birds
who sang for this occasion / just to spread the word.

“Open wide your eyes, / shake off the frigid past.
Let’s tuck in white Winter, / as Spring has come at last!”

I watch the new life spreading, / see it claim ones place:
Growing, blooming, buzzing, / in the suns’ embrace.
They give their very best, / to finally catch some air,
And I just proudly wondered, / for I had brought it there.

“It is a time full magic, / one that will have to past,
As for March, April, May; / Spring has come to last!”

Entry Title: Love Letters
Entry:

“Echo-echo-echo!” Spring was drowned in disarray
for they lingered in a loneliness they couldn’t chase away.
“What use are all my flowers, oh, what use my gentle rains?
For if I can only love myself, I’ve only loved in vain!”

Their echo-echo-echo went resounding through the heights
‘til it it rested, soft and fragile, in the Autumn’s waning light
as its author still was dawning in the coming summer sun.
Ever sundered, Autumn wondered if this might be the one.

Oh the final blooms were dropping and the field was glowing gold;
the ferny fen was breezy-bronze, the leaves were bright and bold.
Fall’s answer came a-boundin’ in the warming harvest moon:
“Keep echoing, my dearest, and I’m sure I’ll find you soon!”

The shoots, like verdant lacework, drank in all that welcome wind.
The boughs were bowed with flowers that all beckoned Autumn in.
In soft and misty moonlight, as the fledgelings tried their song,
Spring cloaked itself in dawning moss; they wouldn’t tarry long.

And so the fated lovers tried to pass a grand impasse.
First through Summer then through Winter, scorching haze and frigid glass.
But though love may steel and warm us, make us soft and make us tough--
though they made an awful headway--it was never quite enough.

When you taste the winds of Winter or you test the Summer storm
and for just a fleeting moment smell the rosebuds as they form,
or you swear you hear the scattering of leaves across the ground,
these are their love letters: always treasured, always found.

Entry Title: Belated
Entry:

If Windsinger were my friend
I’d know just where He is.
Perhaps Windsinger’s not my friend
though I believe me His.
If Windsinger’d be my friend
I’d forge through storm and snow,
cross every sand and rotting land
to make sure we were so.

Perhaps Windsinger is my friend?
Perhaps He’s disappeared.
Perhaps he giggles as he hides,
not scowls the way I’ve feared.
And if Windsinger is my friend,
He hugs with every breeze;
if kindly fathers sometimes hide
then He must hide with ease.

If Windsinger’s not my friend
I guess that I must try
To make Windsinger be my friend
So He might say goodbye.



And perhaps a bit of that feeling infuses the next, as well.

Entry Title: Tarriwrong
Entry:

If you suppose that I have tarried wrong
‘neath bowing branch, or I have clasped the fruit
of Autumn far too long, til like a dream
I wandered out, and trance-like, crossed the stream
of Spring’s swelled hunger, sat between the roots
of stranger pools and drank in robin’s-song,
it’s only so the time that passes by
might wait a little longer by my side.
For nothing in this world will last for long,
and if you think that I have tarried wrong,
then wait with me for Springtime to arrive
and mourn with me for Autumn as it dies.



Just one left. An easy choice. Of all the poems she's written, there's only one she loves properly that captures some thoughts of friendship. After all, for all the friends she's run into this time 'round, well...she's already said her piece on that. Once more, then, for old time's sake?

The pier's a bit shorter than what I remember, but as I got taller, all the tales did,
too. Nothing's ever quite left just the way you left it, on account of all the ghosts

Do you remember_________when the tides came in? Do you remember
drawing lines on our shore? The tall tales say you were a bit peculiar, but
the pools all flooded, and I don't quite remember why we came here anymore.

Judge Abigail took the poems from the other spiral as she looked down the list. "Everything seems to be in order! Good luck, and have a great Mistral Jamboree!"
