FIFTY WORD STORY – Let Me Be You

Let me be you. Let me square my shoulders as you do yours, draw back my locks with the strength of your neck. Let me smile with your white teeth, kiss with your red lips, speak with your hot tongue. And let me bleed with the warmth of your heart.

Dog Outdoors (and Other Haikus)

Fried Bananas

Sweetness in yellow

caramelizes in oil

and browns into gold.

 

Snow Angel

She lies in the snow,

waving her arms back and forth,

like she was flying.

 

Distracted

I can hear her voice

but the words seem to be lost

somewhere in her eyes.

 

Spicy Sauce

The tip of my tongue

tingles as the taste hits me

like liquid fire.

 

Dog Outdoors

He sees me and barks.

When I look through the window

he wags his tail.

Watery Eyes – A Poem

I’m super busy with finals, so I’ve just written a short poem that came to me a couple days ago. The Music Series will be back soon! ❤

 

Watery Eyes

 

You see it as spring waxes;

the pollen punches unsuspecting people

with a vicious right hook to the nose

and suddenly they can’t keep back the tears.

 

But I catch them in the corner;

the thin veil of their eyelids

composed like an iron curtain

while chaos breaks loose backstage.

LOVE POEM #121 – Rain Dance

Rain Dance

 

Just as, when the long rain passes,

the pools of water grow so still

that you can see your reflection

undisturbed by the dance of droplets

 

so, when you had stopped your motions,

it seemed as though my life stood still

and I could see within myself

to depths I had not known before.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Creation

When water fell from the sky he knew thirst. When trees bore their fruit he knew hunger. When the sun broke through the clouds he knew warmth, and when the moon took its place he knew wonder. But when he met her, he knew nothing, for he had felt love.

Walking the Dog (and Other Haikus)

Shower Thoughts

Words rise through the steam

as the water scalds the cold

out of tired limbs.

 

Autumn Eyes

Her eyes are like leaves

that drift down to the red dirt.

Fall is in her hair.

 

Toothpick

Lodged between my teeth,

a kernel swells with pressure

‘til I stab it free.

 

Midnight Snack

The cold floorboards creak

as I cross through the kitchen

to sneak a quick bite.

 

Walking the Dog

He pulls the harness

in hopes that we will hurry

after the squirrel.

MUSIC SERIES – California Snow

December means the holidays are here! This poem was inspired by Let It Snow by Dean Martin.

 

California Snow

 

I pictured the first snowfall

like a Macy’s commercial

where kids could run out in knee-highs

to savor the flakes on their tongue,

 

not amidst a heavy downpour

where steel drops of rainwater

froze to hail as little knives

that cut through my black umbrella.

LOVE POEM #120 – Baby Steps

Baby Steps

 

Do you miss his pitter-patter

on the wood floors? His feet were like

rain drops stumbling on the roof

after lightning had cracked the sky.

 

Now his steps would be the thunder;

his shoes a mountain to the hills

of booties we kept when he left

to chase Ulysses on the sea.

FIFTY WORD STORY – A Dog in the Rain

The rain trickled down the building onto an upturned tin bucket. The sound attracted a shivering dog out from his meager protection: a patch of space in the corner beneath the overhang, hidden from the howling wind. He took a tentative taste from the top, then hobbled back to safety.

Cat Paintings (and Other Haikus)

Graffiti

I can’t read the words

but in the stroke of letters

I can sense their rage.

 

Homeless Man

His fingers tremble

as he fumbles to hold on

to his cardboard sign.

 

Cassette Tape

The whirl of tape

spinning in the dusty box

brings back beginnings.

 

Interrogation

The waiter walks up

cocks his pen and his notepad.

Ready to order?

 

Cat Paintings

A rogue pair of paws

step into the batch of blue

and cross the canvas.
