Sending Waves

My feelings flounder
like a sky of dying stars
already snuffed out
yet still sending waves of light
to haunt my heart at midnight

Seeking Answers (for Jared's contest)

Wasted days
Wandering through life’s maze
Trying to sort the truth from the lies

I call out, but it seems nobody hears my cries
With each futile attempt, something inside me dies
Skies overhead are filled with thunder

What was my worst blunder?
I wonder

To heaven I gaze
Lord, help me find contentment
In hope my hands raise
Yes, I know I was once blessed
Raised well by loving parents

Is there no cure for this malaise?
How did these sad feelings arise?
I listen but hear no replies
My question I seek to rephrase

As much sorrow on my heart weighs 
Searching for words that will not rise
Is there no cure for this malaise?
How did these sad feelings arise?

Forgive me, Lord, I’ll change my ways
I’m humbled; I will compromise
Contrition you’ll find in my eyes
Must I be sad throughout my days?
Is there no cure for this malaise?


*Combination of Trois Par Huit, Tanka and Rondel for Jared’s contest.

Sweet Sanctuary

Come asylum's breath,
gossamer wings touch mine brow ~
Grant me refuge please;
then may my soul find comfort.
In your peace, my heart shall rest...

Why Does She Hate Me

Unconscionable She attacks my weak ego My sure existence I hurt with ultimate pain Crushing my very being She destroys my peace All which brings pleasure to me Sure does falter here I don’t know her reasoning For my love is hers alone

Her Breakable Heart

 A breakable heart
And the fragrance of a rose
 Some tears in her eyes
For an unknown destiny
And a cold night of city

nine-eleven

far across country
smoke drifts..cries reverberate
sitting  mesmerized
bewildered, mutely frightened
taste word...terrorist

No. 1 in Carolyn's contest.

Crafty cow

She stands there waiting
Chewing the cud and watching
for the dark rain clouds
Maybe I should lie down and
confuse the weather watchers    


Details | Tanka |

the boredom

staring blankly 
the sights are too odd to take. 
creepy dull moments,
tick tock of the clock absurds 
they're killing my sanity.
