Crow

Waa~! Sandpapery eyes and headache from hell and back. Ah well. So, in the spirit of sleeplessness, I decided to oneword. This entry is called “Crow”, obviously.

Deep set stone steps flicker with the light
Of swaying tree branches and city swept
Leaves.

Brown and red, sticking in crannies and gutters and
Slick from the morning mist, these autumn fingers and hands
Find their grip against closed shop doors.

Those little scratching feet leave their mark
Like animal-shaped shadows
As their voices lift and shriek into the air.

Geometric

Another oneword entry. There’s a theme happening here -_- Although, honestly, I think all my “poetry” sounds the same-ish. Ha. Anyway, have fun!

Trailing fingertips
Find fine lines and smooth shapes
Against warming skin.
Slow breaths punctuate the air
Until a curve is struck,
Releasing a gasp
And a mouthful of words
And teeth and
Sound and
Silence.

Welfare

I haven’t been writing lately. Mostly because I just haven’t found the time or inspiration to do so. So, here’s today’s entry for oneword. The entry is the same as this title – “Welfare”.

Tendrils and spinning webs
find their home in crooks
and crevices
In the hard rock
And crushed sea shells.
You reach out your hand –
I find your fingers, navigating the
Ground below.

"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
