From poetry

Shine

Don’t apologize
For shining too bright — we all
Have sunglasses.

What Mercury Doesn’t Know

March Madness. Day 5. Haiku challenge. Humble nod to my friend Amy Ferris for inspiring me & this by going all retrograde right back on Mercury every damn time. #WCW

What Mercury Doesn’t Know

Mercury may be
In retrograde but me too
Bringing #goodjoujou.

Waning Crescent

[Interestingly, after I penned, or rather chalked, this haiku for Day 2 of March Marchness, I dreamed of eating a cheese pizza with pepperoni & sausage. Although I didn’t just eat a crescent mooned shape piece. Guess my subconscious was on overdrive, putting in overtime, stressing out over my recent cholesterol issues, cuz I woke up with the inside of my cheeks a little raw from clenching them in my teeth, even though I have a mouth-guard that’s supposed to protect them from me working out my stress in my sleep. Stranger than fiction. But I figure that dream can be spun two ways: pizza heaven or hell. All I know is a waning crescent moon slice of pizza sure sounds good to me. So I’m gonna work overtime on that spin.] 

Waning Crescent

I feel you moon. Me
Too. The shadow grows. Glow on
Like the shadow dreams.

March Marchness

My writers group & I are doing a 31-day haiku-a-day challenge for the month of March. We’re calling it “March Marchness”. Said merry band of poets will make much ado about the best haikus by publishing a spring haiku fling edition anthology. Because the world needs more poetry. Haiku very much.

Meanwhile, I’ll be dropping mine here. If you feel like you wanna play along, haiku me in the comments. And if you use #marchmarchness, we will be choosing a few to include, even if you’re not in the band.

Haiku Challenge. Day 1.

More Alice

Rabbit rabbit–Time
To chase the white rabbit–Time
To eat cake–springtime.
