Like Breath

A subtle rhythm
Like breath: felt as much as heard
A true mark of time


Arrogant Delusions

Putting emotions on the
Line by pretending, or more
Accurately, deluding yourself (a
Need all too common) – its falsehood
Slowly revealed by time.


Six Word Short Story: No

Can you stay conscious that long?


Defying Mind

In a mad dance,
She leaps and twirls
From foothold to foothold,
From task to task:
Speed and continuity
Defying gravity,
Defying mind.
A sudden wall,
An enforced pause –
A simple change
(The grace to sit)
As dramatic as a spell:
Turned to stone or
Glued in place
While the will to dance whirls
A handspan past her fingertips.


A Dilemma of Hopes

Like a young child surrounded by brightly wrapped presents,
Visual promises of future glory, an excitement
Heightened by greed’s imagination –
A dilemma of hopes, of dreams –
When opening one means turning your back
On all those delicious possibilities


Drama Lives

Drama lives
In the slightest slight
Verified or imagined:
A cycle of absurdity


The First Day

The first day
Unnoticed
A season starting
Long overdone
A holiday anticipated
Months ago
A tradition
Lost
