LOVE POEM #114 – In the Cold

In the Cold

 

They say animals cannot feel love;

that the birds cozying in the branches

are driven to keep back the autumn frost

as we drive back the snow with a shovel,

 

but sitting together on the park bench

I can’t help noticing his outstretched wing

is like a coat, offered on a cold day

to one shivering in a feathered dress.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Earthquake

Panic seized the trees as the rumbling started. The birds took to the skies as the mountains rained tears of rock down the sides of their faces. Even the rivers began to shiver as the banks pulled their sides apart. It seemed like all was ruined—then everything grew still.

Cold Dog (and Other Haikus)

Paper Cut

A pool of hot blood

pours from the tiny cut

like boiling droplet.

 

Booth

Red leather cushions

calm ravenous consumers

in a light embrace.

 

Bus Stop

Hair blown in the wind

with a heavy black suitcase

adorned by her scarf.

 

Split Lip

The bruise on my lip

is a red and purple mess

bleeding sour tears.

 

Cold Dog

His howls at the door

are swallowed by the swift winds

as the clouds spit rain.

LOVE POEM #113 – Skyward

Skyward

 

As a falcon will folds its wings

when it is high up in the air

so that it can split through the sky

like lightning in the dark of night

then just as quickly rise upward

as it opens its silver wings

to the gasping morning sunlight,

so did my breath when I saw you.

FIFTY WORD STORY – After Hours

Everything was blurry. It was like looking down the street through a glass of water. Each step felt like trudging through knee-deep mud, in the rain. My head was spinning, then suddenly the ground was rushing up to greet me. The darkness took me as hot blood filled my mouth.

Cat in a Costume (and Other Haikus)

Carving

A serrated knife

frustrates the happy child

because the blade’s dull.

 

Pumpkin Seeds

Slick and slimy seeds

cover my hands in orange

as I scoop them out.

 

Ghost

Who moved my water?

It was on the table, and

now it’s by the sink.

 

Grave

The air comes so hard

it’s like I’m six feet under

with dirt in my lungs.

 

Cat in a Costume

Her little black ears

hold up a oversized crown;

her cape drags behind.

MUSIC SERIES – The Scarecrow

So this poem was inspired by In the Hall of the Mountain King…which I understand is a little weird, but hey, don’t question the Muse.

 

The Scarecrow

 

They pinned me on a sunny cross

like a vegetable Jesus Christ

with the same patched up purple cloak

and my own crown of prickly straw.

LOVE POEM #112 – Haircut

Haircut

 

As a cat, when it sees a string,

will freeze and tense its shoulder blades,

then shoot across the kitchen floor

to sate its curiosity

by pawing at it playfully

so too did I swish my fingers

through the new colors of your hair

when you returned from the salon.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Tag

I sped down the road like a bullet from a gun. The wind whistled past me as I cut through the air. My feet stamped the concrete hard as I whirled to the right. Everything was still. I saw the hand reaching for my back graze my shoulder.

“You’re it!”

Dog Sees a Light (and Other Haikus)

Fish

The scaly grey fish

soar over my sunbaked head

on the summer lake.

 

Head Down

A fatigued moment

with fried eyes shut tight like gates

against my forearm.

 

Left

Out on the doorstep

with a draught of frigid air

and a full suitcase.

 

Vampire

At least then I’d die

when you stabbed me in the heart

with your stake of lies.

 

Dog Sees a Light

All his muscles tense

as the tiny light flashes

against the brick wall.
