Some More #NaPoWriMo Poem Offerings...

I'm really enjoying the #NaPoWriMo poem a day challenge! Here are a few more of my daily efforts... (posting in the name of National Poetry Writing Month...)

Any one else out there doing it? How's it going?


Pit-Stop (A Giver’s Remorse)

Some days
her heart feels
like a one-stop pit stop,
the kind

with chewing gum
pock-marked all over,
a careless spit blitz
of use and misuse,
relics of waste

from those who have
loaded up,
and went on their way,

Some days
she watches their tail-lights
dilate in the distance
and regrets
how (conveniently) empty
she's become.

Meet-Cute (Haiku)

It was cute alright;
you and me and the gold light,
haloes all around.



Saturday is like
a patch of green grass rest
in the week’s towering


Why I Like Writing Poetry

When the right words
fit into the right place
on the page,
the world fits too.

And everything opens up
like a wide-eyed smile,
not the frown it
sometimes pretends to be. 

No Poem Day

I can’t write a poem today
my mind is stuck
in first gear

and anyway

there’s a traffic jam of thoughts
a mile long
honking horns
all blare and flare
to get through

and the red light
hurts my eyes.
