Goodbye

goodbye
the final word
thoughts of never again
prompt emotional expression
teardrops
fall upon the earth like spring rain
awakening new growth
reach for the sun
evolve


This poem is not a true cinquain, but loosely follows the cinquain format.  The fifth line is used as a transition or mirror for the two parts of the poem.

Truck Wreck

This busted broken body-
is not me alying here.
I’ve gone quickly on to Exodus.
You need not shed a tear

Past wrinkled steel and busted glass;
past smoke and pain and fire,
Myself left quickly in the night.
Our Lord did lead me higher.

The ground will hold my broken shell,
but just like my old suit.
It fit me well and good awhile.
Then I outgrew it by a foot!

I need not that used suit.
I need no body now.
My spirit soars amid the stars
with a soft and sparkling glow.

Defenestrate Begone

riddance flung, begone done, when blight cast out window with careless stray abandonment, called 'fore'
