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!”

Kids at Work (poem)

Kids at Work

My dad says I’m lazy.
there’s work to do.
No more lollygagging!”
But I’m just two!

“I started late.
When I was one
everything was outlawed
especially fun.”

“I worked from sun up
till it went down
and then 10 chores
when I got home.”

“I washed and cleaned
before I could walk.
I worked in the fields
before I could talk.”

“You think you can sponge
off your mother and me
and just lounge around
until you’re three?!?”

3 Poems of Wonder

April 8, 2017

The master turned
and said to us
“The road of enlightenment
is like walking on
a giant sheet of
shattered glass
and each path starts
at your bare feet.

On the wall
was written this,
“The meaning of life?
See within.”
But the wall
stood alone!

I climbed to the top
of the mountain to see
clouds in the sky
high above me
