Poem: February 17th

clack of ivory
roll of dice
on polished teak
dram of scotch
hold the ice
single malt neat
fate is cruel
never nice
take what is given
hope for the best
once twice
never a third.

It is a February challenge to myself – to write novel poetry: One-a-day.

Haiku: Brass

molten copper and
zinc poured into sand mold
shiny brass buttons

Poem: February 16th

my dog would often wait
end of the dirt driveway
for our yellow school bus
to bring me back home

he always seemed as happy
for me to be home as I was.

Haiku: Stones

worn smooth by ocean
waves long forgotten in time
these stones are silent

Poem: February 15th

yesterday’s come and crashed
recycled like those days before
same old times
same old ways
sampled trampled gone again

tomorrow’s just a dream away
salvation waiting up ahead
better times
better ways
splendor yonder over there

today remains the barrier
impediment around my neck
there is no time
there is no way
swamped tromped by my mind
