Connections: April 21

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Tuck this in your docket

a poem for your pocket

a sonnet for your vest

or line of anapest

today in bits of paper

in literary caper

we raise a silent cry

against the plain and dry

and summon muses hence

with their accoutrements

metaphor and simile

rhythm light and nimble-y

poetry’s declaration

of determined preservation.

Happy Poem-In-Your-Pocket Day, dear reader!

Change of life

paper petals
ochre dust
yesterday’s tokens
faded troth
but troth still:
change is not
promise broken

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

stems crack
leaves crumble
into tingly wind —
Puritan greys
one Hester scarlet
swirled into whispered whistle
a sly din
restive air
crowded with dry voices

knavery!
softly pliant
summer bloom
into leaf crackle
twig snap
hollow wind moan

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

scuttling city
racing
mid-air
underfoot —
burrowed
denned
tree’d —
wait for me
