defiant

yellow flower blooms

from beneath dead brown leaves

defiant beauty

want

head down

crying

at the why

chanting

screaming

moaning

black drunk

on the when

still

singing

the

sordid

symphony

of want.

rose

fiddled with her petals

like a little girl in a frilly dress

dew drops glistening as jewels

as she swayed to the whispers of the wind

and waited for the sun

As the sun started to go down, and the baby chicklets had to be herded back to their nursery, it was time for The Halloween Poetry Slam…

So honored to have my poetry shared at such a special Halloween party! The chicklets are the best 😀

Rethinking Life

Everyone lined up to read their poems.  Excitement was high and the poetry was wonderful.  There was a lot of peeping and wing flapping throughout, and everyone had a very good time.  Melanie, read her poems last, because she was the star.

Below are a smattering of poems that were read on stage.

CHICKLETS
by Rita

I don’t understand
why humans are always fighting
everyone at The Coop
including our guests
come in all colors
shapes and sizes
we all love each other
what’s wrong with humans

HALLOWEEN
by Jimi

Halloween can be scary
but it’s okay if you want to
close your eyes sometimes
because when you open them later
the scary stuff is usually gone
and if it’s not
you can always go and stand
next to your sister

HEALING BUNNIES
by Margo

I love the Healing Bunnies
because they make everyone feel better
and they are warm…

Autumn

Autumn has moved in

in my neck of the woods

she brought all her brushes

and she’s playing with her paints again

and wow is her artistry good
