Roses [Friday My Town Shoot Out]
 
 
   rosemary gabe

   



Donald Nalsty Hall has a warless wallet
he presses hard on Barron magazine,
tossing silver coins everywhere,
seeking tiny old gaze from clover techcrunch dinner meals
melting snow
parching Robin bills
driftswood raise geese height from milkweeds
monthly touring OLD FAITHFUL from Ann Mountain
what a sweet note
to peacewirer Virginia Hargis and Susan Ruschner,
giggling 
janet napoleons
flared tires give in to hard concerete
our inner body says "sleep well, strayed feather baby"
while Quartz Mountain resort orchestrs
Ballet, Fine Writing, Photography, Modern Dance
and Yo Yo Ma orchestra


 
 

THIS WEEK'S WORDS come from "Old Roses" by Donald Hall: tiny, old, flare, gaze, month, clover, thick, milkweed, drifts, melt, parch, perishes

poetry fitness, Haibun



Today’s special early-bird prompt is to write a haibun!  I am neither familiar nor ever heard of the style. This poem is inspired by the wilting tulips next to my writing screen.

 


It was on that fateful day, when he grabbed his pencil
drawing a picture of a withered peony,  signing
Blissful Thomas, passing dark tunnels and thin air
reaching South Pole and meeting Saint Clause
of Christopher's childhood mercy, he could not
or may never find her of his expectation, not even
under the soft moon shadow, too sad that layers of
year rings are encraved in Oakwood tree trunk
poetry and stories are typed into chapters of art memory
while he intends to reshape his world with advent
Jesus Christ asks Matt Mead to quit swimming,
