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,

poetry rally week 84, and napowrimo day one



Thursday Poets Rally Week 84 speical, 30 poems in 30 days April nutrition/Wellness/freedom/openheart/illistration March (read, post, share and laugh)

Today, Maureen Thorson has her first day poetry post out,

"our featured participant for Day One is Gloria Gonsalves. Gloria is a longtime NaPoWriMo participant, and her early-bird haibun has a wonderfully dreamlike quality, and a lovely punctuating haiku.
Today’s interview is with Kay Ryan, whose spare, tightly-rhymed work makes each poem a small, witty, philosophical puzzle. You can find more background on Ryan’s life and work here, and read one of her poems here.
And finally, our (optional) prompt. In honor of today’s interviewee, I’d like to challenge you to write a Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout, maybe an animal or two, and, if you can manage to stuff it in, a sharp little philosophical conclusion."

 None of my business

 knowing a rose thorn
may not change
your love for corn
or a sharp word
can not charge
and yet
we think it over:
we have sword
of imagery. a big
amount of bouyancy
does not lead to
giving up of hope.
there were red face
moments, maybe
during thunder storm
lightening confuses
our eyes with flashes
no matter what
you choose, or
who you are with,
agree that it is
your personal tie,
a breakthrough 
or an airbag applyment
will always be--
none of my bunsiness

short story slam week 60, american airline and dallas, beijing, and tulsa birds

people travel
feeling great
they say awesome
to their clans
and they pay
for their fee
and we do enjoy
looking sideway
and preserve ourfreedom
of living, speech,
and writing
via multiple space
if you feel proud of yourself
so do we
please let all be themselves
and let Dewey and G. T. Gyunum
by a lovely guy
regardless what happens
we all say
