poem a day challenge

Sorry, Not Sorry

It could have been so different.

In a different life, perhaps, on

a different planet where love

flourishes and never dies, where

youthful indiscretions are merely

Spring

gone is the winter sister

with disgruntled scowl,

foul-smelling mouth,

draped in angel white wings,

Lazarus' shroud.

 

we welcome gladly

 

Leave a Message

old fashioned telephoneHello, you've reached me

Distracted

He was killed instantly last Thursday

though the father, blacksmith's bellows,

worked tirelessly ten minutes or more

blowing air into tiny lungs that would not

If I Only

Shucked husks stuff

burlap bags;

Without Me

Without me

gravity keeps the earth

in orbit around the sun;

waves break on Oregon's shores,

a million or more wildebeest

migrate across the Serengeti,

Here Is My Promise

I will take you out for coffee

serve you ginger lemon honey tea

pull chocolate bonbons out of rocks

feed them to you by hand

 

When it rains or when it hails
