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

Quatros – A new sampling

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

QUATROS
(See end for “What is a Quatro?”)

sky
in the ceiling

to wax
or wane ….

umbrellas up
bell curve

walking
my shadow

the wave
of sleep

when winter is
the only season

candle
goes
out

1 bird
1 cloud

the door
closes behind me

follow the
invisible North Star

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

windows look out
windows look in

lighting strikes!
all is lit!

traveler’s tensions change
local ideas broaden

gnat around a light bulb
electron round a proton

sound
echo
no sound

blinking stars
corks in water

crescent Moon
billowing sails!

We sing
with wings!
