Starting Small

I have been called out on the mat by She who Tap Dances to post some of my poetry out here in blog land. Well, I went digging through old journals with the best intentions of pulling out my 20 year old angst ridden- unrequited love filled poetry to subject you to. I read it all and Oh the Horrors it was AWFUL! Bad beyond bad. Bad like Debbie Gibson and Stevie Nicks got together and had a love child,and that child wrote poetry bad! I'm telling you people, it was stinkaroo.

So I wrote a couple of new ones. Little ones. Haiku(s)specifically. I figured I would start small, and maybe revisit those stinky poems later. While these bits of poetic sushi are far from being good , at least they don't sound like a bad country western song.

Here they are


#1
friend revisited
charming and recalcitrant
can never return



#2
Burger of my dreams
clings to my thighs looming large
awaken to fruit

Poetic sushi...I love it! Haikus always make me think of Robin Williams:

"Red sand between my toes
summer vacation
in outer space-
That was a Martian Haiku!"

See? I can't write haikus- I get claustrophobic in such small confines.
