Two Poems by Kathy Figueroa



They say Heaven is hidden

Among the stars up high

Or rests on fluffy white clouds

In the brilliant blue sky

But Heaven’s radiance shines

And imbues all around

Here on Earth where love is found

~Kathy Figueroa

The Magic Hour

It’s called “the magic hour”

Before the sun sinks low

When everything is bathed

In a warm, golden glow

Colours look much richer

Flowers, more velveteen

And a country garden

Is a haven of green

The dragonflies hover

As light glints on their wings

Tree frogs start their chorus

And sing of peaceful things

~Kathy Figueroa
