Blueberry Pie

There are certain things

that remain storybook art.

I have yet to taste.

Through Layers

Where is my voice now?

Buried in the yard, howling

through layers of dirt.

Memories of Dirt

The woods became cars.

I no longer hear the birds

outside my window.

 

Should I smile more now

or less because of progress?

Summer burns my feet

 

as I walk barefoot

on asphalt, trying to live

memories of dirt.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #104 Dazzle&Sky

 

Dream of nightfall

“Why bother to rise?”

I asked the sun, still smiling, 

drenched by summer’s heat.

 

I wander mind-fields,

pick thought-petals, have lunch, sleep

under the old oak

 

tree without worry,

with the sky protecting me,

I dream of nightfall.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #103 Summer&Fun

To the Sea,

I watch anime,

pack, travel by mind (then feet), 

wear sunscreen, and smile,

 

knowing these days end–

often too quickly–I rush,

 thirsty and happy,

 

to the sea, then stop

because I can’t swim–still

I make time to learn.

Fragile Brevity: RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #102 Birth & Cheer

Fragile Brevity

Come down now, embrace

the sky-less ground, breathless clouds,

without reason. Cry

 

the moment light breaks

safety of shadow, recall

nothing without pain.

 

In this commonplace,

fragile brevity exists

joyful misery.

 

Why do we bother

naming seasons? Or a self?

Possessiveness breeds

 

many sorrows called

jealousy, misguided love

that create children.

 

 

In kindergarten,

a bird sang daily until

a classmate killed it.

 

Many winters passed

since then, I wondered often

how cruelty starts.

 

At what age do clouds

lose magic and we forget

that the sky exists?

 

Why not celebrate, 

soon to be forgotten? Live, 

now, embrace what is.

Happy Birthday, Ronovan! 🙂
