A Haiku, The Moon

I recently did a haiku on the sun, so I figured it was only right to do one on the moon as well. I snapped this picture last night of the moon shining so brightly. It was as if it were trying to remind us all of its purpose and existence. IlluminationGravitating tug of warTemperContinue reading “A Haiku, The Moon”

A Poem, The Albatross

It isn’t The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, but I sure had fun putting it together. The thought of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner came to mind last night, and then I dug in a bit revisiting the whole superstition on the bad luck of killing an albatross. Needless to say, I wrote aContinue reading “A Poem, The Albatross”

A Haiku, The Deer

This morning I was looking out the front windows of my house, watching the deer pass through. It is always something interesting to watch. The doe looks around and remains ever vigilant when the fawns break out into playful fits. When their hooves hit the dirt road that borders my property, their interest changed. TheyContinue reading “A Haiku, The Deer”

A Haiku, The Critters

I was creek fishing a few years ago, and I cast my line upstream and noticed what looked like a skinny log coming towards me. I stepped to the side to let it pass by and saw it slither in the stream. It was a snake. I said to myself, “hmm, that was interesting,” andContinue reading “A Haiku, The Critters”

A poem, The Angel’s Wings

Dramatis Personae: Two entities face unique precarious positions. One is a man who is both figuratively and physically at the summit of his life. The mountain of failures of his life is tall, and he is standing on the very edge of his existence. The second is an angel tasked with helping a man similarContinue reading “A poem, The Angel’s Wings”
