Special Feature Collaborative Poem--By Ken Allan Dronsfield and Blanca Alicia Garza--United States

Light upon the Ledges

By Ken Allan Dronsfield and Blanca Alicia Garza

Field of gentle dreams
in focused timelessness.
a sweeper of life's path,
my caretaker of the dawn.

Faeries swim in the well
the trident of our hedges.
Mercy bless Grandmother,
a Light upon the Ledges.

Gentle visions of evenings
walking the lane in June.
Inhaling the lilacs and roses
capturing essence abloom.

The smells of her sweet
apple pie in the oven
Her tender hug and kiss;
blessings from heaven.

Cats rest by the stone wall,
as I cut some apple wedges
loving aroma and memories;
her light's upon those ledges.

  6. Such a lovely experience to lose self in either one of your poems but to come across a collaboration between you two? That's a whole new feeling; that's like fresh bread out of the oven, hot chocolate after a toboggan run, a good night kiss from a beloved, a purring head bump and a big ol' wet sloppy kiss from man's best friend. What a team; I can't wait for more. You both tickle our fancy and then some. LOVE THIS.

  7. Ken and Blanca--enjoying your sensitive poem in all its gentleness--like especially these two lines from stanza 3:
    "inhaling the lilacs and roses
    capturing essence abloom."

    Such tenderness and love.
