April fool

A wise man never says
#look at the fool.

Wisdom always overrules
the need, or right
to judge….

Laugh, if you must
but the joke
is on you.

Untitled

Hear the pin drop
as it #breaks the silence
splitting words
in perfect points

muted murmurs
loud as laughter
fill the void
with empty thoughts

#micropoetry

poem by the stove

Soup, served in Winter,
to capture all the warmth;
a glove for frozen fingers;
a scarf to wrap around –
we found our shelter
in the kitchen.

Tuned out

no static on the radio
no song to make me blue
no lyrical lament to You
and there was #music

Autumn

September #sky.
The birds are quiet
and sunlight hides
behind the sleeping trees.
A gentle rustle in the breeze –
the subtle hush of whispering leaves.

Winter

brittle branches
clinging to the #sky
like cracks on pavement ice
and everything was grey
as Autumn faded
day by day

Swerve ball

I #fade away
again
again
the King has deemed it so
it’s only baseball, don’tcha know
watch him pitch and toss and throw
another life away

Sandstorm in the sandbox

crocodile tears and waterworks
tantrums flattening building blocks
turrets toppling in the sandbox
games that children play
in preparation….

Water

Fluidity in motion
Cohesion in confusion
Falls in formless symmetry
Perfect in proximity
The flood of all our years
Raining down, like tears
