Pair of Daisies

Pair of daisies lie on sand,
Plucked by lover’s lonely hands.
“Loves me or he loves me not… ”
Until by creeping waves they’re caught
To end their beauty’s fleeting span.
True love or infatuation?
Or just flowers in saturation.

End Ripple

More than a ripple,
When I broke postprandial wind.
It stippled my end.

Entry to the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge. This particular challenge is to write a haiku that includes the words ripple and wind.

Bar-Spangled Banter

I say, who’d believe you could fit dress so tight,
Mounds of bounteous rapture pressing at every seam?
How about you and I make more fireworks tonight?
Let’s burn out the night in our own living dream.
Bombed and bursting with flair,
Grabbing your derriere.
If you’ll check out my shorts,
The flagpole is still there.
Say, do you still have some virtue to save?
Or would you spend some time, with this star-spangled knave?

Entry to a poetry challenge: write a poem on the theme of fireworks, in only 7 minutes:

Privileged Repose

Aside a dusty carriageway
She waits in soft ennui,
New kicks on casual display,
Her legs at languorous ease.

The sounds of father redirecting men
Upon their enterprise
Commingles with the hot industrious din;
The princess shuts her eyes.
Upon their back-bent labor workers creep,
Soon lulling her to sleep.

The entry is for two of the prompts: the picture itself, and the emotion of schadenfreude.

Somewhere

Somewhere, stark in lunar light
A werewolf wakens from a wight,
And creeps throughout the sleepy night
To give his fellow creatures fright.
Somewhere, hapless sot alone
Through forest stumbles toward home,
Types panicked text on shaking phone.
Somewhere, werewolf gnaws on flesh-ripped bone.
