Poetry 101 Rehab: Roots

In response to Andy Townend’s Poetry 101 Rehab.

Uprooted

Rejected

By what you loved

Crushed to the ground

With no resources

No roots to take

Poetry 101 Rehab: Wrapping

In response to Andy Townend’s Poetry 101 Rehab.

Everyone is wrapped

In covers

Of false faces

For others

To choose

From

Writing 101: Farewell

In response to Writing 101, Day 10: Farewell.

By and far

Farewell

Far and large

Goodbye then

Writing 101: Freedom

In response to Writing 101, Day 5: Freedom.

Free from fear

It stands solid

Free from thoughts

It holds its stand

The rock remains

Free

From all

Writing 101: Seconds

In response to Writing 101, Day 4: Seconds.

Four seconds

to impact

Free fall

from top floor

A change of heart

Now

Too bad

Too late

Impact

Writing 101: Sleep

In response to Writing 101, Day 3: Sleep.

Sleep

Comes lightly

To the kitty

Curled up

On the doormat

 

Staring quietly

At the lady

Of the house

Blinking slowly

Meaning

I hate you the least

Writing 101: Reflections

In response to Writing 101, Day 2: Reflections.

When mortals reflect

On how to deflect

Gods or fate—

Lights dance

In the clouds

And laugh

In cosmic irony

Writing 101: Magic

 

In response to Writing 101, Day 1: Magic.

A nervous tic

A worn trick

That doesn’t work

Magic

Poetry 101 Rehab: Talk

Talk not

Your neighbour could be

Secret Police

Drug Dealer

Child Trafficker

Trust none


In response to Andy Townend’s Poetry 101 Rehab.

Poetry 101 Rehab: Rain

The rain erases

Pedestrians’ faces

In motion blur
