National Poetry Month: The “LL” Challenge: Elliptical


It’s been a busy weekend.  Daughter came up from southern Oregon to work on the front yard with me. Yesterday we worked for over six hours in the yard.

One thing a month long challenge is teaching me is discipline in writing.  I really wanted to get yesterday and today’s blog posts lined up.  And I didn’t.  It’s something I worked on during the SOLSC15 March challenge.  Have those posts in queue.

Today, in the backyard, I noticed the elliptical leaves of the hosta.

Today’s word: ELLIPTICAL

Definition: egg-shaped, oval

elliptical paths

hosta plant
unfurls new leaves
we travel elliptical paths

  1. Elliptical Rainbow Mama

    Every year this day
    rolls around.
    We turn the eggs gently
    in their baths of color
    but like Mama,
    heavier at the bottom,
    they spill off the spoon
    and splash rainbows
    on the gray newspaper.

    Elliptical galaxies are like great-grandparents.
    They might be nearing the end of their evolution
    Yet each one has so much to teach us –
    If we pay attention.
