The silent scream, (inspired by language of the heart)

She could not hide it

a tell-tale tear moved slowly

to her downturned lips

unsaid I read the meaning

of one sad, simple gesture

portents, the storm is coming #Write photo



Looking to the East

the world waits expectantly

in preparation

dark clouds extinguish the light

borne by the dancing dragon

A glimpse of the future

September morning

once more trees begin to don

a copper mantle

watching as the year unfolds

regret the passing of time

Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge #49 #Haibun, Soar and wait

Overhead she waits

soaring on her silent wings

while below life fades

I was once the King of the mountain. My voice echoed down the glens and valleys. My brides eagerly awaited my caresses. Now I am alone, a usurper has taken my throne. My strength flows to the ground in a crimson stream. I am weak and all I wish to do is rest. Yet I  cannot, I am old and tired. Betrayed by my own four, once sure, feet. The voice of a new champion rings out, incessant, challenging, mocking. It will soon be time.

A meal is waiting

this story can only end

in a lonely death

all the waiting is over

up to the heavens

Checking  the pressurised suit

ready for freefall descent

Short stuff

Streaks across the sky

ahead of the crimson tide

a race against time
