Five Short Kid’s Poems

October 14, 2017

Pipes shake and groan when
Mom turns on the faucet.
The child hears it and says
Squeaky water!

Splish, splash!
Splish, splash!
find some cover
or we’ll all get wet!

“That low star
rests on the mountain,”
said the child
tired from walking.

the Unicorn and Pegasus
fought to determine
which was the best
mythological horse!

if every child
was good as gold
we’d long for silver.

September Here …

October 7, 2017

September here is beautiful.
Heat is gone and winter’s at bay.
The leaves turn and twirl through the air.
Frost in the morning. There’s work to do.
Smoke from the chimneys. Children at play.

Poems of Love

August 19, 2017

You’re mad at me
but your eyes falter
there’s still enough love
to get us through

words stuck
in her throat
she hesitated …
he is lost.

I would look out the tower window
and smile at the handsome young men
who crossing by would wave to me.
(Inspired by Tsang Chih , 6th c.)

Her touch
like a painter’s brush
swept across my arm.

why is your head
bowed?
There are no stars
on the ground.

now each step
we take together
makes our bound
that much stronger

Hope is a Wall ….

More Quatros (the 4+ word poems)

June 25, 2017

QUATROS

What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words.
Most quatros have a comparison of two things, and behind that comparison is a 2nd deeper meaning. – Tom Hendricks

black – gray – white – ?

in a world
of constant strangers…

the girl’s
got bounce!

happiness
that is attached to nothing

good writing,
bad reading!

a thief
in the darkness …

white fog,
black rock

Can plants be enlightened
or are they already?
… and if so
why aren’t we?

Kansas is
next to Oz.

lighting one candle
with another
as the Moon rises
in the sky
