Freedom Sky (Haiku)

 

A bird soared freely

Above the sunflower fields

Until the gun fired

WANDSWORTH WUFFIAN

Five years and nine months

Can you tell what it is yet?

It's not long enough

 

So whilst on 'A' Wing

Bend down to pick up your soap

Whilst in the shower

 

No 'Two Little Boys'

Just 'Jake the Peg's middle leg

Summary justice

 

A didgery-doo

Try your Kangaroo court sport

Not exactly an exam.
Simply a word fest.

Seven syllables
Neatly sandwiched between five?
Great, my pen can rest.

Passchendaele (Autumn 1917)

Blind, wide open, eyes.
Dripping poppy petal tears.
Crimson rivers flow.

Fields transformed to mud.
Deep cut trenches scar the earth.
Wounds that will not heal.

Gas clouds drift from hell.
Death exhaled in fetid breath.
Lost boys fall like flies.

Ghosts haunt no mans land
searching for their bitter souls
in butchered bodies.

Finding empty shells,
...

Framed

entry picture

 

Snap shot narratives

consumed and represented;

sights for story eyes.

 

Imprint augmented

in minted vermilion,

reposing in gold.

 

Rubied reflection,

framing her identity;

remains of her day.

 

Painting Cupid blind,

exposing expectations;

binary ideals.

 

Bruised aspirations,

extinguished and abandoned,

bleed in solitude.

Well, tomorrow is
The only day in a year
Without mistakes.
