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)

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

purring cat in lap

fragrant candle lighting room

peaceful, purrfect night

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

gastropod (for Photo prompt Mollusk)

art by Tomoki Hayasaka

art by Tomoki Hayasaka

this

predatory mollusk

leads

a very different life

than a simple garden snail

it comes out

only after dusk

in its shell

it holds a knife

and it hunts

for your trail

unwhetted

by leaf and husk

it needs human blood to stay alive

it will kill us all

without fail

~Melanie Blackwell

April showers ( 2 Haiku – Free Writing To Nature)

§

grey-green April moon

illuminates wet pavement

from promised showers

bumbling beetles

flying without direction

after the Spring rain
