Quatros 1/2018

January 27, 2018

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

the sun crosses
my shadow lengthens

orange
orange

lack of want
lack of wanting

it’s snowing
obstacles.

love songs
star dust.

spring is in
the garden.

hold my hand, shadow
and never let go

white snow fields
black river

makeup,
thin ice

star dusted
eyes

blue sea
blue sky

blank book
full of pressed leaves.

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

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

QUATROS

beyond the bow
nothing but sea

a plinth
in the desert

a caged bird
for the bedridden child

more footprints
than waves

one foot here
one foot there

same track
different trains

I’m here
You’re there

men – women
earthquakes – waves

Quatros (7/14)

QUATROS

Door lit
from within

when you leave the Earth
the stars stop twinkling

star maps
voyage paths

white out stars
black ink space
