Transience

Summer had a makeover

With palette Technicolor

Fall unpuffed its cheeks 

 

Leaves swarthy garbed colorfully

Danced their final square jig

Winter sniggered a slighting dig 

 

Winter dampened spirits

Robbing color from tanned cheeks

Melting snowman jeered cheekily

 

 

Feelings

Feelings

Wavelike feelings
Surreal undulating
Fronds in ocean depths
Of my eely mind

A few spiky alarms
Some dreamy ferns
Curlicue creepers
Wandering coleus

Wafting aroma
Fragrance of cherished
Rose in yellowing
Thumbed book of mind

Cozy lap’s lilting lullaby
Cascading gentle streams
Love shower a mere dream
Cresting waves frothy cream

Drenching self in sprays
Diving to revive
Plumbing depths
In fathomless seas of mind

 

Frozen Music

fissured earth’s frail green flag

 

chopped stump’s octopus limbs

 

war ravaged bodies, a heart beating

 

browbeating dominance, spirit unwilling

 

a lark in my garden singing

 

nature’s breathtaking vista, returning breath

 

truth is that virus, no gun can kill

 

beholding nature’s handiwork, frozen music

Flight

An obscure landscape

Nondescript place

Extraordinary sight

Flightless bird in flight

Icarus on the waterway

Fish flying on airway

Piranha regurgitating bits

Bits coming together

Forming joey rabbits

Stars stretching arms

Gently touching petals

Petals pecking starry cheeks

Sun, moon gliding hand in hand

Day and night getting out of hand

Topsy turvy world sleeping waking

Seated on a dinosaur back

Magic wand my hand waving

When a 3D reptile converged

Recoiling I jumped, fell

Thud woke me, pell mell

A fanciful dream, I could tell

Painful back

Out of shape gait

Was my fate

Falling Apart

Personal world
Exploding
Implodes
Innards
Silently
Tsunami laments
Fallout dirges
Ripple
Interminably

Limpet grief
Clings, being
Unwelcome
Leech sangfroid
Blood letting
Fat frau
Ticket less
Hopping ride
To nowhere

Falling apart
Is liberating
Grief stricken
Pander personal
Idiosyncrasies
Such behavior
Condoned, you
Being out of
body and mind!
