Powerful Pause Poems by M. Baits

Starting on Sunday April 26, 2020
Ending on Tuesday August 4, 2020 I commit to this 100 day practice:
Take 5 minutes each day to create a powerful 1 minute pause poem for the next 100 days. These 5 minutes will include:
1 minute each day to pause and breathe,
1 minute to write down everything I notice in that minute: such as what I see, hear, feel, taste, touch, sense and think.
1 minute to circle 10 words that capture my attention
1 minute to write a poem using the found words
1 minute to share on Facebook

I hear purple bees chirping like peeling painted trees and see flowers embudding with my rose glasses. Escucho abejas violetas cantando como peludos de arboles pintados, viendo flores brotando en mis lentes de rosa

Song of water trickling down rain catcher chains
Clematis crowns cascading over garden lattice
Grounds me-M Baits

Poiesis: Candle's flickering flame whose texture like family creates through difficulty. M Baits

Neighbor curses, child cries

Dandelions grow

Pen to paper

Sunlight and shadows


Vecino grita, niña llora

Dientes de león crecen

Lápiz al papel

La luz del sol y sombra

A universe held in colored hearts and orbs
Small, sentimental and sweet
Honoring remembered Moms
HOMEmade happiness- MBaits
Un universo sostenido en corazones y orbes coloridos
Pequeño, sentimental y dulce
Para honrar mamas inolvidables
Felicidad hecha en casa -MBaits
