Poem: Apples

http://plants4presents.co.uk/images/people/AppleGreenandRed.jpg

you offer
openly to me
round firm
tempting orbs
dangling free
waiting wanting
to be touched
red blush on
smooth skin
wafting smell
of paradise

I can see
why Adam
yielded to Eve
inevitably
joyfully
this once again
shall lead to sin.

 


Haiku: Show (HH Prompt)

Haiku 1:
show me yours and i’ll
show you mine she said grinning.
We’re still comparing.

Haiku 2
the secret she said
is to show and never tell.
She turned out the light

Haiku 3
The show must go on
spring summer winter or fall
to stop is to die.

Inspired by the theme word “SHOW” at
Haiku Horizons

Poem: Snail Trails

we pale ashes of ashes
dashing from fitful dreams
clock startled reluctant
awake by dawn’s eerie light
falling from warm bed into
chill relentless Ouroboros
of being acceptably alive

habitual morning minutia
of ritual archaeological
daily defoliation seppuku
scrapping on razor’s edge
drawing out thin patterns
of quick gliding cuts
shedding time and skin
losing hair and memory
like a snake
renewing
refreshing
re-birthing my charms

these daily sacrificial
exculpatory offerings
leaving neatly behind
tiny flecks of me
everywhere I’ve been
spiral helix markings
proclaiming my passing
from silver reflection’s
daily inner retrospection
meditation
medication
mediocrity
I am what I was
and still cannot see
the slow oozing mark
we each leave trailing behind
in the gathering dusty
detritus of we.


Poem: Declined

hopeful
i awake
find no change
or coffee in my cup

another
day begins
the way the other
quietly met its demise

why am i not surprised?


Poem: Ever Fading Traces

icy
solid
black
crackled throughout
tendrils of white
firefly glistens
sparkles of light
giving me focus
lending me hope

cold
irresistible
darkness
layered like leaves
slow rotting away
pinprick starlight
enticing my eyes
guiding my way
leading me home

frozen
concrete
obsidian
splitting in shards
hard-edged splinters
fragile as night
your warm kisses
pulling me in
loving my heart
