parallel

I’m pleased to know that in this parallel reality

I no longer tend to fade into your background

in fact I am a strongly desired commodity

you may think its all smoke and mirrors

but i tell you people are downright awestruck

you are too if you were to tell the truth

though you don’t have the nerve to spill it

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?

softly silent

narcissus-287300_1920

daffodils

silently trumpet

the new moon

that crept in

softly and unseen as a

cat on padded feet

vanity (a tanka)

 

Chiara Fersinis

Prideful reflection;

dreading beauty’s brevity,

cursed by Vanity,

her own face is all she sees

a mirror’s introspection

Perspective ~(Shadorma)

Rock Garden by Bastet

Rock Garden by Bastet

 

hard, grey rocks 
unforgiving path
or is it 
perspective 
unanticipated joy 
blooms amid the grey

Purrfect ~Haiku

purring cat in lap

fragrant candle lighting room

peaceful, purrfect night

punctured clouds spilling
May flowers drink greedily


verdant oasis

treasures? (Shadorma- 2 attempts)

 

Take 1

estate sale:

everything must go

priced to move

9 to 5

find your recycled treasures

their loss is your gain

© g.s.koch

Take 2

at first glance

the nude is the find

well placed

distraction

pirate’s trunk: gold and jewels

eye on wrong booty
