Acrostic: Doubt

Hesitate on 3/1 and Doubt on 3/2.  Seems that someone at WordPress is having an existential crisis.  Or is March simply the month of uncertainty and ambivalence?

Does the moon scud across the sky
Or is it the clouds
Under some lusty spell
Belaying horizontally
Through my fanciful universe?
Doubt

Speeding Tickets

 

 

At 4, she would bolt across the street.
“Look both ways!”  I called.

First day of school, watching that blonde head,
She never looked back.

Basketball, cross country
Always striving.

Half marathon,
A metaphor, of course she placed.

We bought her a car.
Speeding tickets.

Job during college.
Got promoted.

She never hesitated.
Not that I could see.

“Fly, be free!” I used to say.
She enlisted.

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

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”

Also called Barrel Cactus

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.
