Flowetry In Motion

These words seep out of the thin midnight and early morning cracks of time in my life. Every day these words release me. Hopefully they do something exciting for you as well.

Wintermare

Awake started
from slumber
the ice caked
coffin lid
laden lake
lifted spirits
from my
sickled bones.

Fell into frozen
slow confusion
being
bionic man
without the bionic
part.

Waking to warm
sheets shrug
fall back
to astral
playground
again.

Protest

The Present
Dent
should be straitened
Out
with a Sledge-hammer.

Do or Do Not

Destiny cuffs
Should
in ear.

Curiousity kicks
Should
in balls.

Contrary holds
Should's
arms as Rebel
pounds ribs
and stomach.

Doubled over
a boot in rump
from Alcohol puts
Should
away for night.

3 Year Old Ties it Together

Tea party
with
Spiderman
bride has a
web for
a veil
Velma solves
the mystery of
the sleeping babies
as Elasta-Girl rustles
cattle and Elmo
milks a cow for
Minnie who fell off
of a horse and
calls Mickey
to tell him
she is
ok
just having a
nice
tea party
with
Spiderman.

Playing Contractor

Remember
making a
fort.

Took a day
to build biggest
in universe,
entire castles
erected and torn
down in
blink of
mind.

But
building a house
sucks.

Contractors, plumbers
and electricians
not needed
for fort.

Imagination
an afternoon
whatever
you can get your hands on
-and god help
the parents if
you find
the shovel
again.

Today's Spotlight is Brighter

There once were thousands of eyes
focused on this person that was
me but is not
me anymore.

My children's eyes are
more intense than that
the stare of alcoholics
hungry for a laugh.

It is morning
it is still dark
outside
I am vibrating with
an anxious excitement.

There is nothing to run from
or new town to escape to
tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be like today
only closer
tighter.

Freshly Made

You and me
give and take.
I write
you read.

Back and forth
push pull
in out
left right.

I spread these
sheets out for you
nice and smooth
crisp
clean
tucked in
at the
bottom.

Lay down
and have a new
dream.

Wrinkle

Devours large print
prunes under artificial rain
cheerily spoons O's,
groans gravel to smooth
naps on naugahyde
sweat sits to ecstasy flush.

Remembers forgottens
listens to feelings
as wrinkles cycle her
historic face.

Smooth
Wrinkle
smooth
wrinkle...

Wrinkle is but a blink
like all of us.
