maleficent (II)

she’s maleficent
so magnificent
black cat
huntress proficient
mercy deficient
poor rat
acting diffident
looking innocent
hiss…spat!

quiet contrast

 

white sky is falling

stars of perfect symmetry

snowflake on black scarf

 

mid-winter settles

temps dive under sun’s cold glare

icicles shiver

 

blue shadows stretch long

diamonds blanket our deep sleep

home fire’s sweet slow burn

color / blind side (the movie)

 
black & white

piano keys strike

dissonance / harmony

depending on whose

muse-ic we choose,

both hands best

fingers caress.

 

moo-ve the blinds

watch the light with

shadows dance / JOY

sway rhythm in room

june bride & groom,

swirl of cream in

a coffee dream.

 

flavor-ful families

diverse by design

see adoption’s option

mix & matchin’ all

shades /// hues

rainbow of one

human race.

huntress

eye of the panther

marble half-moon luminous

on black night’s soft fur
