“ninja”

 

my mom’s a secret ninja

she’s trained~yes, that’s a fact

in ancient arts of sabotage

(it’s cooking skills she lacks)

she’s stealthy and she’s deadly

~real domestic arson hack~

our kitchen sink is piled high

with pots that she burned black!

 

 

 


Just for fun…you didn’t assume it was (auto)biographical, did you?!

 

thank you, friends!

 

I’m happy to receive 500 “follows”…thank YOU for reading my blog!

hope surprises

Keeping hope alive with dVerse Poets in a “quadrille” of exactly 44 words…

 

hope dangles around courage’s neck,

name etched on soldier’s dog tag.

hope throbs within young love’s heart,

hands held in first awkward clasp.

 

hope gazes into future’s eyes,

grandchildren carry family name.

 

hope laughs in fear’s masked face,

dove flies home after violent storm.

This is what I call “experimental haiku” … it tells the story with a minimum of words and that’s what I challenge you with.  (see Carpe Diem Haiku Kai family)

Class leaves art table in chaos

after origami orgy of one thousand folds.

Now paper cranes, and students, take flight!

 

 

headlight fright

 

arrive after dark

campground on old gravel pit

sign warns:  DEEP WATER

 

 

Linking to Ramblings of a Writer and haiku challenge: deep & water

animal crackers

 

review cunning calliope of creatures

observe running menagerie of animalia

stare at stunning kaleidoscope of wild kingdom

gaze on sunning rainbow of critter chaos

admire funning mosaic of my zootopia

Gotta love this colorful fabric pattern featured at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads where Margaret invites us to quilt a poem!

 

reunion

 

beers after long hike

friends converse on cabin deck

cool evening breezes

view of shadow mountain lake

sunset watercolors sky

twilight: diffuse & defused

 

light fades to darkness

flashes of peaceful fireflies

keep vampires at bay
