15/30 - #NaPoWriMo - Untitled
Lips locked under tight key Quiet. Voice in the vault of a throat Caught. Night comes to wash the day away In silence. Thoughts, rest for now.
#NaPoWriMo - 15/30 Haiku
sushisaid: We discount the pain/ Of others because it looks/ So unfamiliar. This. Right. Here.
Sushi Said: #NaPoWriMo - 10/30 Poem →
sushisaid: When Fleetwood Deville said, “…and it can’t be no coonery if I mention Jesus…”, What I heard was, Jesus is a brand name. The Christian claim to be God. Like having an iPhone somehow gives you, The genius of Steve Jobs Even if Christ ain’t vaguely related. Hatred don’t sound like hatred, …
17/30 - #NaPoWriMo - Shower With Me
Meet me In the shower. Tonight. If a look can say it all Then your eyes wash me with sonnets. Unearthed magic that drips From beautiful irises Such that remind me of dreams And sunrises.. My skin is pressed against cool tile As words cascade down my curves.. The pockets of steam billow up Past the eyelashes you laced in haiku last night.. They flutter with residual shyness. Even as...
17/30 - #NaPoWriMo - Why So Serious?
There is no music more melodious than laughter. It goes quite fittingly along with Birds chirping happily in trees.. Natures flutes.. So carefree.. Skipping through the lawns of neighbors. The song of deep, true laughter.. Births lines of the proudest wrinkles over time And a youthful heart, Capable of producing infectious happiness. People should catch smiles like colds.. To live...
6-8/30 - #NaPoWriMo - My Hand at Haiku & Senryu
6/30 - Haiku - Trim Some Grass blades swinging free Mechanical hum comes close The fear is quite real 7/30 - Haiku - Philosophy 101 Today is today, Yesterday’s tomorrow. There is no reverse. 8/30 - Haiku - Other hands strum heart-strings Pluck along a song of loss Heart loaned till hers heals.
13/30 - #NaPoWriMo - "If Walls Could Talk.."
Lay against me Ease your troubles on down To carpeted comforts. Rest awhile. After all.. It has been your longest day And though I can’t pour you That drink… I can hold you. I may support you.. As others haven’t. This is how I show love. Hopefully, if just for now, It is enough.
14/30 - #NaPoWriMo - Urban Hunger Games
Wonder how many times she’s heard “You got a sexy voice..” already.. Wonder how many times it was Followed by a girlish giggle and Coy faux dismissal.. The girls look so good but Their brains are not ready… And they have no idea. “I’m mature for my age..” Is intended to describe brain activity But it really only expresses How milk does a body...
5/30 - #NaPoWriMo - Alpha & Omega
Held your hand tight to battle it’s twitch… But you were already gone. Involuntary movements present. Wished you’d voluntarily come back to me. There are still things I don’t know, Many things you never had a chance to teach me Though your spirit will forever Illuminate my moon.. Your essence lives in every single paint brush I will ever hold.. Like your hand.. I...
4/30 - #NaPoWriMo - The Art of Gardening
I like my hands dipped Inside flowers again.. Praise to the art of gardening.. Fingers laced in God’s earth.. I can touch the birth of a smile And slip over petals so grand Soft and strong enough To trap my will to do anything else.. I fell asleep in a flower bed once Happiest time anyone could ever have Best sleep since infancy The song she sang, I’d never heard...
3/30 #NaPoWriMo. - "Angels Try Too"
Walk on water Carefully. Perfection of angels on eggshells.. Heavily unbalanced wings Made for flying high.. Not deep sea diving. Can soar straight up like a rocket But might drown attempting To swim upstream.. Strength better used for Nudging miracles.. Sweat drips on brows when Moving mountains. If this iridescent being be the guardian Then who’s watching the watcher,...
Why don’t we get outta here… Anywhere I just wanna climb the St. Louis...– Drew Law (Snippet from “Why Don’t We Get Outta Here”)
We all have bullets beneath our skin we pray our lovers won’t flinch at when...– Andrea Gibson (via mariellexbby)
spindrift: morning love coiled in each other’s sleep you kiss my forehead i kiss your forehead your nose your cheek it’s dark the sun creeps in and we’re wrapped like presents for each other in each other arm, arm, leg, leg tangled like satisfied shoelaces knots of “i love you”s in whispers and sighs groans of delight nuzzles and cuddles you are my pleasure plight.
2/30 - Stay A While
• inspired by “Baby, Come to Me” by Patti Austin & James Ingram, which hit #1 the day I was born • Arms wrapped around tight Despite past fear trampling memories Just come to me. Fingers find each other to lock In pinky promises that last.. No crystal balls or fortune tellers To guide with supposed definite direction.. Hope, faith, trust… And pixie dust of...
(written while listening to Orange Moon by Erykah Badu) This womb was built to carry the dreams of a dreamer Heart of gold Strengthened by lives past A king or queen that has Surely known this world before.. Being of light and treasure. I see these bright brown eyes gleaming.. Unexplainable.. There’s no way to paint the pictures Housed in this mind Of a face I haven’t seen...
