spring melt, a pause
snow never thought
would last.

Mist

Browsing my valley,
a white fluff of myst'ry
curls below the sun.

Somehow I know Iíll forget
this, before the day is done.

Mark - sorry I missed your new one -- I like!

resting teal ruffle night reeds
until the moving earth again 
points them toward sun

Longings. :)
 
          Longings left to float freely
    Swim through life's ocean zest fully
       Asphyxiate when unfulfilled.


ps:a slight change was made for getting 17.will this be counted?

Greeted by crisp air at the threshold, leaving,
looking up and taking air,
door to my back, doors all around.

Fading of Love
  
   Complimenting each other
Their love like stars up in the sky
  Untill clouds darken them away

Bested in thought by a stranger, I asked him to share.

Dreams die at dawn,
sentenced in half-light,
burned by the sun.
