Sunday- haiku

another Sunday

bringing beauty at daybreak

outside my window

lizards scampering

squirrels chattering great truths

the yard is alive

sipping my coffee

i prepare to start the day,

already begun

possibilities…

what will you bring to the day

it is up to you

indigo

tonight i’m feeling indigo

kinda blue but naturally so

no real reason for sadness

nothing newsworthy, no new madness

just gonna give myself permission

to simmer in this somber disposition

maybe tomorrow will be a magenta kind of day

but tonight i’m feeling indigo

patchwork girl (haiku)

sins of her father
black swatches and blue ribbons
of mother’s neglect
she’s a patchwork girl
pieces stitched together by
vivid crimson thread

Blue and partly broken

Blue and partly broken

man has taken her flower 

made a poison of sex

before she ever had a chance

to bloom

on the vine

in the sun

but no worries,

“her injuries are minor”

she’s gone

the luscious sun shines

still, dark shadows paint

a picture of death’s arrival

sad music rose as a whisper sweet symphony

as we watched him whisk her away on the wind

Once more

She was swimming

in a sea of languages

words crashed over her

in waves

yet she couldn’t understand them

she only spoke in one tongue

These expressions were foreign to her

they swirled around her deafeningly

She just wanted them to stop, to shut up

for more than just a fleeting moment

so that she could her herself think

This surging, swelling tide of Words

rolled over her, leaving her struggling

for breath

and to remain afloat

Just as she was sure she would be swept away

and pulled under

There was a lull

and she could hear his voice on the wind,

softly singing “You are My Sunshine”

and she found the strength

to swim back to shore

once more

Sweet Dreams of Spring

she, as the flower

deep in a honeyed slumber-

awaits the sun’s love

overfull

her head is overfull

with thoughts of him

she can feel them pushing out through her hair follicles

seeping out of her pores

thoughts she could once contain, contract

now expand and explode until they fill the room

thoughts of him push aside the bedside table

there is no space left for anything

or anyone

else
