27.starlight

lingering on the lanai in the late evening hours the sounds of the sea are ever present. as the moon rises and falls the hours pass in quietude recalling the morning’s dawn and daylight’s ending sunset. all too soon tomorrow lifts her sleepy eyes as nocturnal shadows begin to fade.

traveling sea breeze

roams the great oceans

26.imaginary.trouble

it’s a good cause
abstract and bearable
keeps the cursing far away
shifting from here to there
it matters not the dawn

hidden behind a wall
trap door deceit
living the lie
freedom fighter
every single day

feline female
purring and pretty
beyond blemish
smart and sensual
fictional figurine

without one worry
her glittered life of leisure
five living children
three nannies strong
she’s a shrouded sphinx

book reading excursion
far from land across the sea
another drop will do
this troublesome trouble
perceive her quixotic reflection

napowrimo day 26. MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt Define Insanity, Reasons for Admission

poet’s note: found this intriguing how a woman who was troublesome and did not follow the rules of engagement were treated as insane and locked up. if not locked up they sipped from a bottle that cured the vapors. how often have we found ourselves in a situation of our own making thinking it was a better world than it really was.

24.stunned

car cutting highway late and last
off to belfast
turn left not right
it’s quite a hike

single line silence drifts away
there’s dues to pay
no guns no soap
it’s a tightrope

dusk divine across the blue sky
can’t help but sigh
gab with the ghosts
at the lamppost
