FIFTY WORD STORY – Walking on Water

I balanced my feet above the water. The glistening pool seemed to beckon me in, but when I lowered my feet, I found the clear surface hard and defined. I pressed myself up and walked, splashing droplets around me as I stepped. Then, suddenly, I fell through to the bottom.

Dog Chasing Butterflies (and Other Haikus)

Unseen Branch

I stared at the cracks

in the cement, then, at once,

was smacked by a branch.

 

Backyard

The dirt in the back

has become a grave for dead

and discarded toys.

 

Text Speak

r u on ur way

bc ur girl just arrived

and thought ud be here.

 

Repurposed Toys

What was once a spoon

now bears the eternal weight

of Excalibur.

 

Dog Chasing Butterflies

His teeth snap the air

as he chases the shadow

of the butterfly.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Future Reflections

The mirror echoed, “who?”

When my voice caught in my throat, the glass turned into a black corridor and swallowed me. I padded down the darkness to an old, decaying wood door.

And behind the door, I saw a feeble looking man. He pointed at me and called out, “you!”

Cat on the Table (and Other Haikus)

Table Outside

Gliding through the dust,

my fingers draw a smile

in the table dirt.

 

Morning Coffee

So much depends on

the small, yellow coffee mug

perched on the counter.

 

Boy with a Hose

The boy with the hose

spots me walking by his house,

smiles, then sprays me.

 

Packing Bags

My life would seem lame

were it not for the novel

peeking from the bag.

 

Cat on the Table

A leap to the chair

then one more to the table

just to say hello.

MUSIC SERIES – Dream Halls

Happy Monday! This poem was inspired by Led Zeppelin’s “No Quarter.” Is there a song you’d like me to write about? Let me know in the comments!

 

Dream Halls

 

The candle wax swallowed the fire hours ago

and Nótt swayed our little flame hours before.

She sent him back to his sleeping quarters

to dream about your slight chance of survival.

 

It’s good to let him dream, isn’t it Mother?

Even as the nightmares ride down the mountain,

it’s good to let him dream of a place in the sky

where he can march with you to your new halls.

LOVE POEM #95 – Gluttony

Gluttony

 

In the mouthful of your sweet kiss

I reveled in sapidity,

swelling with a primal hunger

and forgetting to savor you.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Black Heart / No More Tears

I saw myself in the mirror, teary eyed, and swelled with disgust. I rinsed my face, stood up straight, and plunged my right arm into my left breast. I tore the heart out, spurting blood on the countertop, and injected it with black dye. There would be no more tears.

Dog Food Bowls (and Other Haikus)

Closer to Heaven

Sitting on the roof,

hands resting on the shingles;

legs hanging freely.

 

Telling Her

Typing the message

was like riding a new bike;

sending was crashing.

 

A Poem About You

A child at heart,

skipping through the sentences

like they were a stream.

 

Reminded in Nature

I picked the pink rose,

thinking that its smooth petals

smelled like your perfume.

 

Dog Food Bowls

I hear them bouncing

against the rigid cement

while the boys run by.

Drinking in the Moonlight

Taking a short break from the Music Series this week. We’ll be back at it next week. Happy Memorial Day

 

Drinking in the Moonlight

 

That’s really all I have to say.

Sitting under this umbrella

in a simply woven, brown chair

looking up at the summer stars

 

wondering about my whiskey;

how the ice cubes clink the edges

of the shimmering crystal glass

and how warm the wind’s caress is.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Morning Anxiety

It feels late. I can see the sunshine on the dusty floors. The stress enters my lungs like a thick fog, choking me from my sleep. I rush from the sheets, glance at the body laying next to me, and check the time. Six o’clock. I still have an hour.
