#MicropoetryMonday - January 2 - 8, 2017



Here's all of the micropoems I've written this past week! Some were previously shared on Twitter & others are brand new! Enjoy!


****

Ack! I feel panicked,
all the static,
unnecessary. 

It's falling off the edge
into the unknown that's so scary.
New Year. Same me. Wild.
Nomadic.


****

The younger generation
would rather fight
with the older one. Us
tweeners (in-betweeners)
sit here in disbelief.  We're
strengthening our vision
muscles with all the
eyerolling.


****


"Statue"

It was too still. 
I wished you a good sleep & 
you listened. 
For once, you heard me. 
Do voices reach you now, statue? 
Cold as stone.


****


"New Beginnings"

Through the door
we spoke of fresh starts,
our new beginnings
What of old beginnings?
What about the walls we put up
to get here?


****


"Caress"

Constellations
form
on the small of your back
to me

I reach out
barely
touching you

A starry eyed,
cold shoulder caress


****


Tiptoe the delicate thread
 of life 
Where
leaning too far either way
throws you off
 Balance
despite & in spite of the chaos


****


Fall in formation
with the dear, darling drones
Commonplace captives,
Slaves to phones
Swapping screens for skin,
Tones for bones


****

Your presence-
the top of your eyelids
behind the newspaper-
makes time between stops
more bearable & I'm a long way from home


****


"Games"

Sharper wit, broken claws,
 -a cold & empty cage
A full bellied feline-
the only evidence left behind
of these cat & mouse games


****


Haiku:

I was smitten by
her sparkling eyes and
the stories they could tell me


****

Haunted enchantment--
that glimmer in your eye was
terribly soothing


****


It was the breath of
his first kiss that awakened
her soul's native tongue


****


VSS (Very Short Stories):


The planchette covered wall confused him.
"It's the eye that matters, the window,"
Seer says.
"They let us glimpse them. Don't forget."


****


"Eyes"

Miraculously, I glimpsed the beast's eyes before they devoured me.


****
