Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Recycling Energy

A little brown box
Arrived at my door smiling
Oh goodie! it’s here

Got scissors unwrapped
The new book that I ordered
I’ll have a good read

But first a duty
For healthy environment
I must recycle

Cutting with scissors
Dismembering brown cardboard
Workout for muscles

Haiku: Ostrich No More

Poet in me slept
Escaping circumstances
Of a world gone mad

High time to awake
Stir my juices, let words flow
With my mighty pen

Haiku: Morning After

Silence. I hear it
After wind’s fury calming
Beginning new day

Haiku: Pulse of the Times

News is disturbing
Hate and meanness unrivaled
Vile anger spreading

Fearful yeast rising
Malicious lies ore’ taking
Strained arc of justice

Tanka Challenge #23 – Help and Smile: Belle Vs. Rehab

Arduous rehab
Sparring partner for life force.
Belle won and came home.
Foreboding thoughts turned to smiles
Shuffle, play cards for this day

Haiku: Perspective

Raindrops on window
Appear strung on dark tree limb
Like diamond necklace

Modern Immortality

Today as I went out the door
A friend of mine was coming in.
She pushed a cart filled with lush plants
And plush throw-pillow rainbow-hued.
She told me a friend who died left word
For her to choose some things
To keep as cherished memories.

The green house plants would live for years
The pillow soft would comfort her
But one more thing, my friend told me,
Will indeed outlive us both.
I have the emails that we shared.
There is new immortality
Promised us by cyber space.

Thanks to Enid for inspiration

Haiku: Different Strokes

Some poets breathe fire
I regard changing dawn sky
Beauty fuels me.

Tanka – Door and Friends: Uneasy Comfort

Friend left ICU
We arrived to play word games
Hospital or no.
Underneath unspoken words
When will I go through this door?

With thanks to Colleen Chesebro for inspiration

Haiku: Tomorrow

Pink horizon peace
Pale half-moon lights graying sky
I await new day
