chocolate bunny

sits atop a basket of brightly hued plastic grass

surrounded by a sprinkling of jelly beans

and colorfully dyed hard boiled eggs

an Easter basket


*though for me its all about the chocolate!

Easter Bunny~ haiku

oh, you do not hop

your ears, they do not listen

poor Easter bunny

your nose does not twitch

sadly you are not fuzzy

poor Easter bunny

when all hope is gone

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay

the pain in your heart

seeps out of your eyes

and while you still long for freedom

you’ve long ago lost the will to fight

slowly, you’ve succumbed to your demons

now, into the abyss you take flight

with wings far too tattered to fly

you knowingly, willingly depart

and as you fall to your enviable death

only the stillness

bears witness

as you take your last breath.

come here, boy

again and again I speak

yet my words fall on deaf ears

or at least ones with selective hearing

come here, boy

I want to kiss you with my mouth full

of words, of sentences

that way you will have to consume them

once swallowed and digested

will you finally comprehend?

everlasting love


when poet meets muse

their kisses are poetry;

everlasting love

The full moon peeped through partial clouds

desperately trying to get a look at the couple below

wanting to bask in their light as they bask in the moon’s light

for the moon is no fool and she knows true love when she sees it

shadow of what once was

Image by bruce lam from Pixabay

in fleeting kisses

our breaths mingle

hands once held tightly

have lost their grasp

still our lives are entwined

our love is still true

just a shadow

of what once was

you say it is the sunshine you crave
it is shining
you just can’t see it from your dark cave
you say you need the warmth, the light
it is shining
you just don’t give yourself the right
you’re not willing to go outside,
outside yourself, outside the “comfort”
of what you already know is no good for you
you say it is the sunshine you crave
and it is shining
as brightly for you as it ever was
if only you’d open your eyes,
your heart,
your mind
