Not Everyone is Allergic


for quails in spring
a scotch broom thicket
is moonlight and roses

Bucking Winter



spring horsetails
even john wayne
can’t tame ‘em

For Carpe Diem: horsetails.  Celebrating my 100th post, and since I am a cowgirl at heart this is perfect. :-)

your lonely childhood
in an empty swing

what does it say about you
that i’d rather be here
huddling in rain

A haiku written for The Mag 158 and for the Real Toads prompt 'Today We Scream’ brought to us by Susie Clevenger in honor of the Woman Scream International Poetry Festival to raise awareness through poetry about violence against women.  My poem refers to the domestic variety.

Snowdrops and Sleigh Bells




snowdrops splashing
like citrus squeezed
onto feathered ice


---


snowdrops
dripping from the tongue
of the moon


---


sleigh bells
and a hush of snow
almost silent night


---


sleigh bells jingling
even the snowman
smiles and waves


---


the sky flinging snow today
just to hear
children laughing again

26


26 reasons
to remember why
He came



Copyright 2012 Jennifer Wagner



It’s Christmas, but I find it difficult to feel celebratory.  I know most are probably feeling the same way with hearts heavy and broken from last week’s devastation.  And yet I am reminded of why He came.  He came not because He wanted us to decorate trees and drink egg nog and rack up credit card debt giving gifts.  He came because we are in darkness, and He is the Light of the world.  John 8:12  Come, let us behold Him.  Perhaps we have never needed to more.
