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?

“Spreading the love…”

Janey over at Cupid or Cats (if you have not met this very funny lady go check her out HERE ) put me on the spot  challenged me and I’m going to attempt to rise to the occasion :).

The challenge is to write ten lines, four words to each line, each containing the word love and nominate ten others to join the challenge.  Sounds pretty simple, right? Right?!


 

Always looking for love

Thought you found love

That love wasn’t True

You mourned love and

tried to “love” you

But what IS love?

What’s love to you?

To ever find love

you must define love

love may find you

~Melanie Thomason


Oh!  And as far as the nominations go…you know I’m a rule breaker soooo..

I nominate YOU!

That’s right, if you are reading this, right now…

you have been challenged to Spread the Love!! Get right on that, will ya?!

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

Purrfect ~Haiku

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
