NaPoWriMo Day 30 - Blizzard


Blizzard

Walk under snow weighted willows
sunk silence inside roaring winter storm
desperate birds, returned, food scarce
fight ferocious battles for  precious seeds
Know
Nature is a cruel unforgiving Madame.
Wait inside blizzard winds
dance with heavy snow flakes
blinding eye to hand,
carefully mind your feet, your heart
broken inside crushed dreams
Love is a cruel unforgiving Master
Know
Winter knows no end.

NaPoWriMo Day 29- Intersect


intersect
the lines through me
split apart  these pieces
evenly shared with her, love
joined

NaPoWriMo Day 28 - Decades


I scroll through decades
to find my age, only to learn
I lost it to time and decay,
 
Counting years
backwards
forwards
missing numbers still not found,
 
I scroll through decades
and found my fresh dug grave
instead of my age.

NaPoWriMo Day 27 - Suggestion


He suggested,
“violets are blue
roses are red
I want to fuck you”
I laughed at his boldness
Shying away
All the while climbing into his bed
In my mind.

NaPoWriMo Day 26

Unbidden
Heart
Constricts
I know this distance
Do you know this pain?
Love

NaPoWriMo Day 25 -

A silent
crash
with no BANG!
BOOM!
and we wait
to see
view
the Other place.

NaPoWriMo Day 24 - Religion


Religion

Left confused in gutters
we wander searching for God.
In trenches dug for the dead,
I dig with you. In your quest to be buried,
I thought climbing for fresh air
would be a better view of things
come and gone.
Even then, you dug further
revelling  in the shit that lives in the gutters.
I don’t think you’ll find God here.
But maybe, the Butterfly can tell us,
the details on the edges
of a blank map.
