Quick Slip -A Haiku

life is a mere blip
slipping away dawn to death
quicker than a wink


For Ronovan Writes Haiku Poetry Challenge, prompt words: quick & slip.



it takes empathy
the kindness of bleeding hearts
freaks who care too much
to restore our dignity
and grace, our reputation


A Tanka for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge using synonyms only for the words:

affection: kindness, grace, empathy

character: reputation, freak, dignity


there’s a green cheese moon
high above a flat earth…cows
and cats with fiddles


For Haiku Horizons Weekly Challenge, Prompt Word Moon.

Grappling with fate

grappling with fate

nothing thrills me more,
not fortune, nor happenstance…
rouses my soul to believe
in kismet, in providence

felicitous flukes
that bind us intrinsically
you know…pure magic


For Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge inspired by these words and their synonyms:

Destiny: fortune, serendipity, happenstance, kismet, fate

Challenge: rouse, thrill, grapple.

Chipped Away

trust is tenuous
chipped away by betrayal
‘til there is nothing


For Haiku Horizons Challenge, prompt word, Chip.
