long legged recluse (haiku)

I am caught up in

your sticky threaded prison;

your reluctant prey.

·

I’m firmly ensnared.

Your silky, sweet sounding lies

have woven a web.

·

A gauze-like blindfold

distorts my vision of you,

but I still see you.

·

Hairs raise, skin tingles

as I await your venom

poisonous or not.

alone (2 ways)- haiku

as a phantom limb

I can only imagine

the warmth of your love

finally alone

dancing beneath the moonlight

she is free, to be

love (haiku)

all-encompassing

absolute, true and boundless

is Mother Earth’s love

she nurtures all in

a universal embrace

will you love her back?

of course

floors freshly mopped

no leaves and mud strewn about

rain falls heavily

writing ~ a haiku

writer’s melody

fingers dancing across keys

letters birthing words

Do you see the birds? (a series of haiku)

 

Picture taken right outside my writing room. Do you see the birds?

Picture taken right outside my writing room.
Do you see the birds?

green leaves in shadow

birds perched on slender branches

outside my window

blue birds do fly bys

chirping gossip out of tune

they sing no response

flitting in the breeze

that warns of the coming rain

they seek no shelter

content to just be

little green leafy birds stay

to inspire me

Purrfect ~Haiku

purring cat in lap

fragrant candle lighting room

peaceful, purrfect night

Oasis~Haiku

punctured clouds spilling
May flowers drink greedily


verdant oasis
