An Inspirational Poem, The Graveyard of Hopes

I recently came up with this poem out of thin air. I got all situated to start a new chapter in a novel I am working on and got entirely sidetracked with creating a poem.

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, Pluck These Strings

A Haiku, The Earthquake

I figured I did a tornado haiku, so why not do an earthquake haiku, haha! The 2nd line of this has a double meaning when you think of it. The Earth has faults, as do we, and sometimes they collide. Plates shift, the ground quakesThe faults of the Earth collideMankind plays its part Let meContinue reading “A Haiku, The Earthquake”

A Haiku, The Cold

I let my dog outside this morning and stood on the porch looking over the frozen yard. The sun was poking through onto some parts of the yard melting the frozen dew. The melting happened so quick.
