More Quatros (the 4+ word poems)

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

Novel (two poems)

June 15, 2017

novels meander
with excess fat
short stories are lean
and all is taut.

a novel is
spilled paint
a short story is
a single line.

Three Bird Poems

THREE BIRD POEMS

They made a bird park
with a high fence
and a sign
at the gate
“Must be able
to fly this high…”

The crow
was lit
on the
Moon side.

Birds lined up
on the top of the wall
watching the wingless
down below.

Quatros – A new sampling

May 7, 2017

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. There is usually a very real comparison between two things, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning. – Tom Hendricks

===============

more like lightning
than a lit candle.

the Big Bang
is a clown car.

there are stars
above the clouds.

Blue girl or
just the light.

Now
soup

snowflake
in the sun

Above our heads
a crown of stars

in the wake
of the Moon

The parents braced,
“Release the children!”

Crop of Lightning
