Day 22 – Between Seasons | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

b+w leaves on snow


in-between weather
too warm to wear the snow boots…
too cold for slippers

Day 9 – Wardrobe Salvage | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

Prompt: article of clothing

kibbles…then dessert
threads tangled in teeth and paws
my sock in his mouth

Day 8 – Cupcake Winter | Poem a Day (NaNoWriMo)

Running on Snow

 

more than a dusting
but not a second layer…
frosting on the path

Day 27 Late-Season Snow #NaPoWriMo

Late-season Snow Storm

Prompt: “Take one of your poems and, in three places, insert a parenthetical comment…” I used only this much of the prompt found at Cuyahoga County Public Library website. Only three more days to go!

late-spring storm
{by now, I shouldn’t feel surprise}
snow on puppy legs…face…tail
{how did he get snow plastered THERE?}
don’t sit in my lap!
{ah, well! there’s towels}

Day 15: Two Poems #NaPoWriMo

leaf and late-day shadow on concrete

To a dead leaf, lost on concrete

I found myself considering the sadness of leaves and seeds that fall where they can neither decompose nor have the opportunity to germinate and grow. And so, on a (serious) whimsy, I promised the residue on the garage floor that when I was finished with taking their photographs, there, I would gather up them all and return them to the outdoors, where they may decay, or sprout, and live again.

I cry for the leaves on the garage floor
thrown out in new plastic bags
not renewing the soil

Hey, tone it down, there!
Pitch-and-Toss ain’t meant to be
no blame shoutin’ match.

“Pitch-and-Toss” is a game of chance.
