November Naani #23

she glows ever bright
on this cloudy night
crystalline frosted
framed in black lattice


Florescence Day 28

days to full, the pink moon,
but already tides swoon
sucking sand from the dunes, swept away


For Jane’s Daily Florescence Challenge. This month’s moon isn’t full until tomorrow, but I’m feeling its effects already…or maybe it’s just me…though my dog Winston is feeling it too…he told me so…and the tides, well, need I say more? They’re swooning. I’m sure of it. 😉

Florette #2

full-faced moon, lucent dreams
clouds race on tempest streams


A blustery nor’easter raged into town last night under the light of March’s first Full Worm Moon. The howling noise kept my dogs alert and close by on this sleepless night. This is Day 2 of this challenging poetry form inspired by Jane Dougherty, who I am convinced is a sadist or masochist, or both, for having suggested this two-lined beast. 🙂 Just kidding…all in fun Jane…you know I am always up for a challenge. 🙂

Blue Moon

pie-faced moon

blushed rouge, earth shadowed
and blue sometimes, oh so blue

chasing stars away
owning the night


A Cherita (a linked poetry form of one-, two-, and three-line stanzas. Cherita is the Malay word for “story” or “tale”. Read more about the Cherita HERE.) My friend Jane Dougherty gave this form a whirl today and I thought I’d give it a spin too.  Thanks Jane for introducing me to the Cherita! 🙂

harvest ode

harvest ode

mirror mirror in the sky
truth’s reflection burning bright
stars align, emotions swell
some find comfort, others, hell

ours is not to run and hide
mirror mirror in the sky
call forth authenticity
shed the dross to set us free

mend our cold uncaring hearts
light our path when days grow dark
mirror mirror in the sky
tame our tongues when curses fly

heal our broken disconnects
all’s not lost; oh no, not yet
there’s still time to set things right
mirror mirror in the sky
