dark days

dark days

darkness enshrouded
moon fading slowly to black
bodes fury at dawn

As if we needed more heartbreak…
two hundred thousand souls now gone
a stalwart prophetess moves on
now when there is so much at stake
with riots in the streets, earthquakes,
fires, floods, hurricanes…can’t look!
The year god looked away, forsook
our selfish prayers, our hateful ways,
our sins exposed on full display,
our end assured by hook or crook.

no trace

no trace

the light slipped away
hope is dead, go quietly
a dream leaves no trace

Today’ Blackout Poem worked perfectly as a haiku style poem. It was inspired by the poem by Courtee Cullen below:

If You Should Go
Countee Cullen – 1903-1946

Love, leave me like the light,
The gently passing day;
We would not know, but for the night,
When it has slipped away

So many hopes have fled,
Have left me but the name
Of what they were. When love is dead,
Go thou, beloved, the same.

Go quietly; a dream
When done, should leave no trace
That it has lived, except a gleam
Across the dreamer’s face.

between raindrops – a Haiku

rain hovers in gray
‘midst brief bursts, sunlit blue
breeze tossed leaves patter

wet – a haiku

wet

air, cool misty, damp
tiny rain drops pelt my cheek
sharp, breezy kisses

weeds

to the seeker’s eye
diminutive perfection
Gaia’s masterpiece
