drummed at the water #micropoetry

I drummed at the water

among watching trees

geese honking

crisp cold air

calling on the ancestors

giving thanks

praying for our world

may myriad stars #micropoetry

~

may myriad stars

kiss troubled brow

humming soothing lullabies

of night skies

assuring the sun will rise akin

new year’s coyotes #micropoetry

~

tonight I spoke with coyotes
in yelps and yips
up into crisp starred night sky
they felt my wild heart
mirroring theirs
and helped me let bygones go bye
#micropoetry

exquisite honesty #micropoetry

~

exquisite honesty

births cacophony

of childless truths

across glowing screen

of internet stream

contrasting the sea of lies

and smarmy tries

indelible kisses #micropoetry

~

your indelible kisses

designed a decisive path

thirsty water

seeking satiety

over verdant mountains

hungry valleys

to rest in limpid pools of love

necromancing nebula #micropoetry

~

necromancing nebula

philosophers flow

arching archetype

escaping undertow

reality glitters

all is not gold

forgive them

they do not know

skulls of stones #micropoetry

~

skulls of stones

lay barren

strewn about

in winnowing winds

and wandering waters

asking forgiveness

longing to be loved
