For the Birds (Tritina) | Crystal Grimes

Through your singing you speak
Sharing peace, hope and love
With your tweets and warbles.

But it’s not just your warbles
It’s the message you speak
Can it teach me to love?

Do you know hate? No, love!
Must I learn your warbles
So I can gently speak?

Or can I speak love without warbles?

Nightfall | Crystal Grimes

Night falls softly these long days,
Perfect timing every phase.
Sweetest kiss caresses sky
In a lingering good-bye,
Featuring the fading Sun,
Heralding the rest begun.
Royal symphony of light,
Promises of dreams tonight.
Tender notes as day departs,
Peppering the sky with stars.

Our First Picnic (Haibun) | Crystal Grimes

Our first picnic was Labor Day. It was not outside, but it was a picnic to us – hamburgers baked in the oven and baked beans on the stove. It was simple food on a simple day. But to us it was another milestone – our first picnic!

Baked beans and burgers
Hot outside and cool inside
First of many more

Postcard From Summer Camp | Crystal Grimes

Having tons of fun at camp!
Swimming, races, arts and crafts,
Lots of bugs, lots of sun.
My freckles are out in full force!
(Thanks, Mom!)
And I’ve learned so much:
My astral body
Will be cleaning my room
From now on!

Love, Sage
