Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #138

Whispers in the dark

Can hold the softest secret

But burn the air black

Reclining Buddha
Meditation cast in bronze
Nirvana on view?

A Restless Sunday Night

Running on leaves
In the woods.
Tripped.
Hit my head on a tree.
Is my forehead bleeding?
Woke up at 1:03 a.m.

Wednesdays
Labrador Retreivers
Jumping midweek

Spring rain
4 a.m.
The dog pees

This last one, I think I have been reading too much Kerouac.

Early Flight

Something comfortable
About
Old friends in a long marriage

Stay
You say
We can do anything

There is nothing
In that anything
I want

Everything turns
To no-thing
When your plane leaves at 6 am

Haiku/Prompt: Slur

Early Spring arrives
Buds on the maple tree swell
A slur to Winter

Slur

Acrostic/Glitter

October Sunday morning

Gorgeous
Lovely
Impressive
Tactile
Transitory
Expansive
Rhythmic

 

 

Glitter

Acrostic: Squat

Spiny spheres
Quietly squat
Under the light
A pin cushion of barbs
That has the nickname “horse crippler”

Echinocactus
Buffalo Botanic Garden
Also called Barrel Cactus

Squat

Chirping at the Galleria

 

There’s a sparrow in Walden Galleria.
A black throat with a cheerful song
Smiling at shoppers on a winter afternoon.

Sound

Atlanta to Buffalo

What did people do
before they bought an iPhone?
Write a little po’m

At C fifty-five
Atlanta to Buffalo
MD eighty-eight

 

Outer Space above
Smoky Mountains below
Purgatory seat

Swirling clouds muffle
a frenetic Earth below
Horizon holds fast

At Kroger

The store was full of shiny balloons, decadent chocolates and lush bouquets in advance of Valentine’s Day.                           

My pocketbook was flush enough that I bought a plane ticket to visit my crush…of 29 years.

Honestly, it never gets old.


Love is all around
Under the helium
Standing resolutely in a pot
Hoping, expecting, to be chosen
