Haiku, Poetry

spiracle retreat

one single impression: trembling

deciding to decide
there was little else to do
rebirth rebel ramble

turning twirling twice
surface seeking surveillance
passage way eyewitness

remember this
forget that
metamorphose fresh

emerging mindless
shivering inquietude
bringing no baggage

blindfolded bother
farm girl fantasy
sleeping in till 10

pink paint polish brush
toenails and fingernails
a full body massage

wrapped in reality
this tiny twittering escape
mimosa lavender descent

  1. The 4th verse speaks volumes. Emerging mindless, as we all do… without baggage. When do we begin to lose that?

  2. wonderfully written. love the use of alliteration in the haiku stanzas. it’s always great when one can forget everything and emerge refreshed. hope all is well. have a great day.

  3. And we retreat into ourselves. Well, your sleeping farm girl does.
    Did you know that crickets have spiracle valve? 🙂
    I get the Willies following your verse here, it just doesn’t ever come to a pleasant ending!
    Teach, did I do okay?

writing is everything...
