3WW, Poetry

3w_uz.captured

hearing the clatter of colors falling
the rebel rainbow ran
there by the window refuge whispered
that gritty grief that so entangles

sneaking past sincerity
the jingle so jarring
wrapped in a recent revolution
whitewashed brown sorrow’s separation

saffron sandy itchy secret shift
manifest mourning marrow
virus vindicate viaticum
percolating pink flight flamingoes

bursting massive blushing blooms
charmed cast of characters crocus crowded
the scent of lavender lingers alight along the lane
skips and scatters surreptitiously

cloaked her hips entwined in sunshine
suggest something so simple and divine
one sting of a subtle smile submerged

haiku my heart.living

1.
12 words of wonder
shifting back and forth knowing
tombstone mumblings

2.
catching quiet wind
grasping loosely never told
sand slipping stories

3.
coyote calm coo
he clearly saw the remains
heartfelt howl hiss

4.
i’m trying you know
leaving it all behind me
dead dry roses cry

sunday scribblings: no 290 my backyard

in my own backyard
there is an ocean of plentitude
tides slow surge
streams of alluvion drench delight
season to season suffuse

just inside the physical fence
boundary bubble bounce
the ebb and sweeping sound
incognito serenity halcyon
swaying flowers chattering chimes
the pleasure is purely mine

enticing escape bountiful beauty
never not once the same
underneath the canopy tree
the sight of silence soothes

spark and stare

rebecca’s friday recuerda mi corazon [haiku my heart]
one single impression sunday prompt no 149: calmed
photo: i was distracted…., penwren, flickr

I was distracted by an agapanthus

1. spark
humble
love evolves strong
spoken in creamy calm
near the edge of each expression
canto*

2. stare
alone
unexpected
pacified pantomime
mimic the others who perceive
christmas

*A canto is a division of narrative poem, usually epic in nature, that is traditionally lyrical. … Unlike short poems, a canto poem is long form and contains a story. … i see this short poem as part of canto in that there is a much bigger story behind this love that could possibly be expressed in a canto

small swim

one single impression this week’s prompt overt
photo: Yellow Lilies, Rebecca G., flickr

morning light revealed
bright yellow swaying strong
lilies weaving way

tall leaning presence
full blooms sketch a sunrise view
startling sight

walking further
beneath a fertile flower
exists another new

coffee in hand
morning summer ritual
greet a glorious garden
