precarious

pedestals are precarious places

and I never asked to be up here

I’m scared of heights, I don’t belong

and I know all too well the pain

that follows the inevitable fall

winter’s perfect scene

snow falls on an evergreen-

natural flocking

adieu to you and you and you…

She had come to a decision

It was time for a fresh start

With only promise in her heart

she bid farewell to them all

in celebration of herself

AllIWant/BlueChristmas/PleaseComeHome

This is for all those whose only wish for wrapping this Christmas Day

is to feel the arms of lost loved ones wrapped around them.

 

playing on the radio yet again is, “All I Want for Christmas is You”

and all she can think is “Yeah, right…

and I believe you too”

 

and then she hears “I’ll have a Blue Christmas without you…”

and sighs, because what does he know

about this kind of blue

 

“Please Come Home for Christmas”, never will come true

when your love has gone and left this world

forever, without you.

sleep

being

broken and weary

seeking eternal slumber

she curled beneath it’s canopy

the winter tree laid down it’s leaves

blanketing her in serendipity

once white~ haiku

freshly fallen snow

turns grey under careless feet-

as a broken heart

Merry

her skin is infused with peppermint

hints of sweet vanilla underneath

and in her hair of sparkling tinsel

she wears a fir and cranberry wreath

everything she touches glitters

dew drops freeze and crystallize

she creates a wintry wonderland

as she dances, flits and flies

when the forest is freshly blanketed

in snow of purest white

it is Merry, the Christmas faerie

adding magic to the night

5 haiku

Haiku prompted by the following quote:

[…] “We have lost contact with reality, the simplicity of life”. […] Paulo Coelho

These are separate…and in no particular order.

 

1.

illumination

of every street light and house

obscure the moonlight

 

2.

social networking

facebook friends and followers

don’t replace friendship

 

3.

live your own real life

there is no reality

on television

 

4.

don’t follow blindly

choose to see reality

knowledge empowers

 

5.

be here with me now

take off your shoes, stay awhile

enjoy the moments

 

~Melanie Thomason
