Sealing eyes of sky,
       Descend upon straps of light,
Dusk…now dreams the night...

HAIKU VERSUS RHYTHM AND RHYME

My favourite pastime:
crafting poetry in rhyme
but not so this time

Ordered by Debbie:
from your comfy box break free
haiku it will be

Debbie, what's with you
to rhythm and rhyme I'm true
I loathe haiku

I'll stay in my sphere
sans rhythm poetry's queer
Oops! I rhymed in here

A Delicate Balance

Breathless and beguiled
 Nature blankets my lone dreams
   Swallowing me whole

her eyelashes' flicker


before melting---
her eyelashes' flicker
with my every breath
