head in the clouds

head in the clouds

the clouds fell to earth tonight
millions of water droplets swirled
around me as i walked, my flashlight
capturing their frenzied fluttering
white noise against a starless,
moonless sky, so this is how it
feels to have one’s head in the
clouds, dreamlike, catching tiny
water daubs on my skin and
the tips of my hair and eyelashes,
damp, chill, just me and the trees,
the crunch of gravel under my feet
and the peepers, awake from their
winter slumber, singing of spring

in a fog

in a fog

while people mourn the sick and dead
trump proclaims ‘we’re rounding the turn’
there’s no end to the lies he churns
he fills his sycophants with dread
‘it’s all a hoax, trust me instead…
masks? wear them or not…you choose
stop testing, silence the fake news!’

we’ll all soon have a choice to make
we have a voice in what’s at stake
this time we can’t afford to lose

clouds drench the hollow
blooms of opaque gray matter
obscure perception

May Day 8

in the fog

things
are not
what they seem
but memories
inform our steps to guide us through the haze

Gone – a Cleave Poem

PicsArt

Gone

imagining you gone  | as fogs hovers
i still hear your whispers  | dripping with dew
your breath | a gentle breeze
warming my neck | infused by fragrance
the brush of your lips  | sweetness blossoming
against my skin | spring on the wind
imagining you gone | sun muted by the gray
pierces my heart  | remnants of night
rendering me inconsolable | causing the doves to mourn

As promised, my second rendering of this interesting poetry form…the Cleave Poem. One should be able to read the left column, right column and each line across as a combined thought giving you three distinct poems. An interesting challenge indeed.

To learn more about the Cleave poem or to give it a try yourself, click HERE to Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge.
