Easter morning. NaPoWriMo # 20

Brisk Easter Morning
Robin sings her nesting song.
Rabbit springs to woods.

Ode to a cluttered table. NaPoWriMo #19

Ode to a cluttered table

O' cluttered table;
You soothe my soul,
Lift my spirit.
I find comfort in your

A florid runner, rosy
And lacy-- lays
Buried beneath the potpourri
Of words, tools,  synapses
Connecting thoughts, ideas,images.

This jambalaya seems random
Until the inked paper comes
Alive. Meaningful messages caress
The page; breathing life,
Newborn, alive?

Whimsical gallimaufry sates my libido.
Whether scented candle, Korean inscense,
I am free to amuse myself
With silent meditation,or
Smile, in the mirror?

First draft.......

The List NaPoWriMo # 18

The List
Books, always books; poetry books, how to,
lessons to follow.   Dog-eared, bookmarked.
Magazines read and unread, reread.
Brass holder to keep pages open.
Candle lantern, crossword calendar
Puzzle-- Note calendar
Moleskins, Kindle, scattered reminders;
grocery list, todo, opening lines.
Pens; fancy, plain. #2 pencils
Coasters, place mat, assorted bill receipts.
Cough drops and crumbs;
Crumbs of last night's repast.

A proverbial adage. NaPoWriMo # 17

Birds on a cliff flock together
Better late than in the river.
Black berries in your hand are worth more than on the bush.
Haste is the mother of all waste;
A little learning is a good start for
Those who live in glass houses; should wear clothes.
It's better to lick honey covered flies than
To catch a curious cat or
Kill a book with a clouded cover. So
Don't write your proverbs by the batch.

Liars, lies and confabulation. NaPoWriMo #16

The planet earth is a fictitious plan
dreamt by a scientist from cosmos' black hole.
She was Isaac Asimov's daughter, Hera.
Her crowning achievement; planetarium--
Into which she placed a petri dish
Inside a crystalline terrarium
Populated with cartoon characters
Called lawyers; principled entities
Entrusted to facilitate justice,
Equality, liberty for themselves.

Blood Moon. NaPoWriMo # 15

CNN photo

Hiding behind a gauzy negligee
   Of filmy clouds,
There you were
   As predicted,
In your scarlet glory
For all who care to stare.

Yet it was I, alone,
Who ventured out of my
   Cozy loft
      To witness your display.

You rewarded me,
   Displaying your beauty
For my private viewing.

early riser NaPoWriMo # 14

Before the sun could reach
 horizon's rim--
I was out of sleep's clutch
 yet again.
