family gathering –
lurking among the spirits
of ancestors
hint of madness

Juke Box Quadrille

Hellish day ends. At the neighborhood haunt, friends are there, relaxing –
The juke box’s playing Nina Simone’s classic
…”spell on you”…
Raphael and Arabella are
dancing in a lazy sway, like strands on a
willow tree – for now.
Theirs – a throw down, dirty love!

Christmas Spirit

After welcoming the first fluffy snow
The spirit of Christmas has got me in its throes
I dig up the lights, put up the tree
wrapped gifts are out for all to see
Then I go through the vinyls,
to find the ones with the carols
Side tracked with Sinatra, Dean, Nat Cole
Threw on some Miles and Coletrane too
Before I knew it I’m rummaging through time
But then, all in all, it was a good night

Monsters

Over at dVerse Poets, Björn is talking monsters. We should come up with a poem with voice of the monster that scare us the most.

In my case, I can’t put a name on it because:-

I don’t believe in monsters
Never did
I don’t watch scary movies
Never did
They seep into my consciousness
Always did
They run around in my dreams
The monsters do
I don’t believe in monsters
Never did?
