(It's) All Good

This late May,
Summer left a calling card
Sitting on our patio
Newly born.
Seed cake pecked away,
Shadows share an aviary,
Cappuccino frothing
On Saturday at dawn.

Early June rainfall,
Floodgates open us,
Current swell swirls back
A letter from St John.
Building a reading list
Pianoing the dusk back
Tapping two golf balls
Across this lawn.

All good things
Beginning to begin again:
Spiriting us skylines,
Freshly unknown,
Excavating soil
For the smile of an alien,
All good things
Are yet to be shown.

Written for Theme Thursday


  1. smiles...nice...i like that...all good things are slowly unveiled in our lives...a little here a little there....freshly poem...

  2. ... 'pianoing the dusk back' ~ this is a great line in an engaging poem. I enjoyed reading it.

  3. I like the May peeling into June's rainfall ~ All the good things beginning ~ I specially like the last stanza ~

  4. I like the flow of this poem, loose enough for imagination, clear enough for meaning, and beautiful in cadence. There's a serious lightness about it that appeals to me. And I agree, "all good things are yet to be shown."

  5. All good things are yet to be shown. I love that line

  6. I love "all good things beginning to begin again" and "all good things are yet to be shown." Awesome and uplifting.

  7. Ah yes, summer coming again to your northern land. Such a good thing indeed!

  8. wonderful, liking the beginning of the second stanza, nice flow and sounds, very good
