My Mom’s Angel – A Poem by Ken Allan Dronsfield

My Mom’s Angel

She sat majestically atop the Christmas tree
hair of gold
buttons sparkling
dress of white lace
her wings a silver hue
I watched each year
her being placed
with loving care
upon the tree.
My mother standing back telling Dad,
no, to the left,
now right,
forward.
The years have now come and gone
Mom and Dad have passed away
the Angel sits in her box now
her dress dirty and worn
hair frizzy & unkempt
buttons don’t shine.
Memories are made and then put away
as we remember this New Year’s day
just like Mom’s beautiful Angel
radiance never betrayed
shining so very bright
each Christmas.

Autumn Sonnet to the Raven – A Poem by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Autumn Sonnet to the Raven

My coffee pot perks to the morning beats
our deformed pumpkin grins at passing cars
witches and ghosts will be ready tonight
we all smile spying the hot fresh donuts.
Blue Jays spar in the old white lilac bush
a leaf of color floats from the blue sky
Raven’s flock in a golden unkindness
Willa the old cat just lays there and naps
White birches reflecting the morning sun
maple syrup for my lovely pancakes,
fresh apples rest in baskets on the porch
tomatoes ripen in sunlit windows.
Tinkling of spoons in mugs of hot coffee
Raven’s Fall is my favorite dessert.
