Worries

at daybreak
worries drowned in wine
come back to life

rising
with the sun,
morning glory –
regrets on hold

Over at dVerse poets are 4 photos taken by Hubble and we’re asked to choose 1 for your inspiration and write a poem.
What leap out of the photo you choose; or leap into it. How does it make you feel, think, believe?

An open eye
Amidst the big picture
If only we could
see what you see

Christmas Quadrille

20171106_16193388776501.jpg

De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo), is our host this week on Quadrille Monday over at dVerse Poem. The challenge is to make sure the poem is precisely 44 words long, and literally contains some form of the word kick.

So here is mine, my first Quadrille

 

New curtains, throw pillows new spreads for the beds

Fruits been soaking
With this there’s no joking

In bath of red wine spiked for kick with
other kinds

Digging out Christmas Carols

job for brother Darryl

Meats highly seasoned

we’re set for Christmas Season

Haibun Monday – Kindness

It’s Monday over at dVerse poets. Haibun Monday. This week the topic is “kindness”. Pop over, have a read and join in from here.This is my entry.

I’m in the Victorian House enclave of Brooklyn. They’re filming a movie. So this usually means no parking spaces for mere mortals. I find a spot. I’m backing in and the guy behind me is opening his hood. I park and go about my business.
I come back to my car and there’s a ticket on it. I’m irritated. I don’t remember a parking meter. Damn!

This guy is where I left him. Only this time he has booster cables attached to his battery. Traffic is slow, yet no one stops I pullout and back up next to his car. I pop the hood of my car to the sound of blaring horns behind me. He turns the key in his ignition, the car starts. He gave me the biggest smile, thanking me perfusely. Then I noticed his small grand daughter in the car. Suddenly, I was no longer irritated.

mournful notes
waft through autumn sky
soul searching on tenor sax
