Calling on (Better) Angels

my dears
to all things
good, lovely, true,
averse to the lies
of gutless fools intent
on arousing fear, stoking hate,
for their disdain and self loathing
belongs in the boneyard forever
quiet, silenced by our better angels


An Etheree this week for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge, Synonyms Only, Prompt words: Afraid: gutless, aroused, averse, and Grave, boneyard, cleave, quiet.

Slow Down – A Haiku

If you don’t slow down
You’ll likely arrive too soon
To an early grave!

This Haiku is inspired by Haiku Horizon’s prompt this week: Slow. To read other Haiku or enter your own click HERE
