Stormy Weather and Halloween

anguished poems
languish in tandem
with life halted
in shelters, hangars
ready to resume, fly free~

Drenching myself in pure
Streams of morning mantra
Chants – I allow myself to let go
Long held vigilant stance ~

Expressing emotions
Writhing in belly
Never comes easy
Better to leave be
As is , uneasily~

-Impromptu words
Form, surface
As day’s events
churned ink blots
In stupefied face-

wide eyed, awake
at this ungodly hour
sinfully dark treats
afford pleasure
in full measure ~

Not cowering under cheerful quilt during these gloomy times
Uncomfortably aware of meltdowns and overflowing cisterns
I visualize the sorry states of soggy ghouls and jack-o-lanterns

Witches brew concocted in monstrous seas and skies
Temper tantrums of wrathful winds with terrible mood swings
Screech in banshee whistles as they zoom in fly by~

Stuck out my tongue

no the cat did not get my tongue
I stuck it out
at monster storm Sandy
and he bore it away !
waiting for it …

to boomerang
into own
to recuperate
stay, say, yay !
