Selected Micropoetry

One of the many different forms of writing poetry is an outgrowth from Twitter’s limit of 140 characters per post. That is a challenge for writers to get a complete thought and create a poem in 140 characters. The following selections have been posted on my twitter account in the past couple of weeks.

I~

hand on one hip

fingers beckoning

from the other

A skirt swish…

and the dance begins

 

II~

 

A simple girl…

Shy at first

But…

Once she learned

his dance there

was no turning back

 

III~

 

… I dreamed of sweet

love in the afternoon

you were alive and

warm and delicious

 

… Reality was the

cold light of morning

 

IV~

 

… his hands

the touch of his

fingers

 

stained her memory

leaving fingerprints

on her soul

 

things were

never the same

 

V~

 

Shadows on the wall

tell me you are leaving

no need to look…

there are no goodbyes

there never are…

never will be

 

VI~

 

… those were the days

drinking wine at midnight

having a toke or two as

you read to me from

Kerouac’s On The Road

 

VII~

 

…early evening

blue velvet sky

memories…

her heart broke

all over again

 

VIII~

 

… LOVE

 

we all need it

women…

men…

to make us

giggle like children

in its wonder

 

instead…

all I can do is sigh…

 

IX~

 

Mama always told me,

“One day you will know

the fine line between

love and hate.”

 

I am finally there.

The Wind …

Leave a comment

The Wind …

… the neighbor’s dog
barked incessantly all day

fraying her already
fragile nerves

early spring but she
sees a long summer
ahead

she didn’t know which
was worse …
that damned dog
or the howling wind

the dog she could almost
ignore … eventually …
there was a rhythm

but …

the wind …
that devil in the air
howling…
gusting…
driving her slowly
INSANE

this time of year
when it starts
the wind never
stops …
day and night
going on forever
and …
the dog seems
an almost
welcomed relief

Baby Steps…

Leave a comment

Baby Steps

I have two new and

different things in my

life that are additions

in retirement

 

Both are bringing me a

certain amount of

recognition…

But…

Each are moving

slow and easy

In their own time…

 

Like anything good

things of greatness

come to those who

wait and those who

remain humble

in the waiting

 

Baby Steps…

Moving slow and steady

Just the way I like it…

Gone…

Leave a comment

Gone…

Once again I lose

Once again someone

leaves me with no

reason, no explanation,

no goodbye…

Just GONE

 

My heart can no

longer break

because…

there is nothing

left to break

 

My soul has

been destroyed

yet again…

leaving me with

darkness and

pain

 

All I say is

Enough…

Random Shuffle

Leave a comment

Random Shuffle

Life is a

Random Shuffle

in a deck of cards

 

You never know what

will happen with the deck

And…

Cards like life must be

played as they are dealt

 

We never know how

life will be …

Good or Bad

But…

Like random cards

win or lose

it goes on or runs

over us in the process

The Edge of Time

Leave a comment

The Edge of Time

Hanging onto the

Edge of Time

 

Mourning what never

was and what will

never be

 

Death of a friendship

in ways is much harder

to accept than the

death of an actual person

 

The  pain never ends

so true mourning

can actually begin

Misfit…

Misfit…

Always the fifth wheel

Ignored…

Unwanted…

 

Looking from the

outside in she no

longer wants to

be a part of

what she sees

 

Realization that not

fitting in any longer

is to her advantage

 

Those are not the

people who will

be good for her

SOUL…
