Haiku

Undefined Shadows,
subtle reds, vivid purples
a flaming sunset

Veroinca McMullen


The moon on the sea,
Where it rests 'til the morrow,
Fish nibble the cheese.

Tiffany Isham


Out blossoms beauty
Drawn apart by his untrue words
Confusions of love.

Janei Nacapuy


Planted with my thoughts
Roses like tulips and you
My Secret Garden

Ana Lemos


The cat lay twitching
as he watches his small prey
jump from worm to worm

Trish Whittaker


Bill returning home
the deep footprints in the ground
a wet hunting trip

Larry Lairson


Feet in the forest,
Walking through the wilderness,
Stepping on tree feet.


Growing slowly, but,
tempted, "peak above the sky"
with time, and with care.


Crisp, Burnt leaves falling
Wind swept; Wooden skeletons
Cool breeze brings Autumn.

Phillip Minnick

Standing tall and green
Reaching skyward at darkness
Stars are Christmas lights

Yvonne McClelland


The swift river flows
Through the mist filled Meadows
The early morning

Darkness fills defeat
As moonlight reflects the sun
On a lonely world

Terry Beair


sitting lazily
in the middle of meadows
unwillingly milked

Jineen Hassen


Blue, green, yellow, red
A happy smile upside down
Soon after the rain

Kari Dunagen


A blue wandering
Moves slowly into the night
White caps when rowdy

Richie Hall


Leaves float to the ground
Slowly swaying to and fro
Does it hurt when they land?

Lyn Meier

 

Acrostics


Hearty fools
Orging over a
Cymbolic object,
Keenly dodging and driving
Each other to keep up and give
You your enjoyment with terror.

A gentle sweet scent
Lovely, soft, ruby kisses
Harmful thorns show through

Angie Shiroma

Oceans splash of blue
Jungles tangle all colors
Why, it's a rainbow

Vanessa Carrillo

The world is hungry
Reagan buys another bomb
Simple solution

Kari Dunagen


Metallic mountains
An endless sea of cement
Man's nature, city

Scoot Goolsby


Masked child roams the streets
Carrying bags of saccharine
Glowing pumpkins smile.

Phillip Minnick


Makeup in disguise
Rows of rabbits in cages
Mascara in eyes

Laisha Richardson


dark silence broken
hiding, moving in darkness
dripping water line

Neal Jones


Running alone down hill
Feet moving fast as they can
Being beat at the tape

Terry Beair


He carries the ball
Indulges in broken bones
Then finally scores

Rusty O'Donnell


Lingering Lineman
Lunging toward the launching ball
Swat. Down it goes.

Jeff Manildi


Mirror's reflections
Produce a simple image-
Only the outside

Kelly Champoux


Darkness with intent
words and, well all sorts of things,
turned around and bent...


Mind matched against mind
Little souls move where you will
Rule your Chess Kingdom


Propelled to the sky
Feel like you could fly
Stupid Gravity

Beth Hall


Perfume on her neck,
Like poison awaiting her
next loving victim

C.J. BoyD


Petals, falling slow
Fading, wilting, dying
Slowly, like their love.

Janelle Agayoffe


Unforgetable
Eyes glazed over in stillness
Stare of perished man

Heather McGray


Knocking people down
trying to get to black puk
A bloody battle

SINKING

We decided to go on a trip,
Take a cruise on a really big ship.
Yet when we got on the boat,
The thing didn't float,
And we sank like a chip in some dip.

Vanessa Grossman


BLACKOUT

All the lights went out in my house.
A cup of water spilled on my blouse.
I ran to get matches,
But tripped on a mattress,
And came face to face with a mouse.
