Just Peachy

Puppeteer
starting out
becomes known for
pulling strings

Flaunts frog who teaches
the alphabet, sings songs,
acts in movies, avoids the pig,
rakes in the bacon

On the street
where imagination blooms
and the guest stars
who enjoy the spotlight.

Young and old
love the lime
colored Kermit
do you?

plain pair

1.
planes
spread wings
inflexible yet fly
lift, drag, loft over
plains

2.
storm
for us
thunder, lightning, rain
celebratory weather…am I
dreaming

Note: for me two weeks, for my hubby almost a month without
seeing rain from the sky. Though there was a slight spritz
on the way to the airport – not even enough to put the rental
car wipers on. While waiting for the shuttle to take us back
to the car in long term parking… the sky let loose!

OK not quite to prompt. But so glad to be home –
now comes the fun part catching up on house chores. 🙂

Tuesday Tryouts: a single image

http://margoroby.com/2014/06/17/poem-tryouts-a-single-image/
tau ku, pi ku, haiku; line/syllable

a short series or individuals based on
the view of the neighborhood carving out its
space on an otherwise barren mountain.

tau ku: 1/6, 2/2, 3/8

picturesque; very small
they sit
houses nestled in the mountain

pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4

built on stone
homes
their foundations laid

haiku 1/5, 2/7, 3/5

constellation like;
windows shine – miles away
fade with morning light

c JP/davh
gems 6.17,14

Note: sometimes as the crow flies is the shortest point
from here to there. Out my window I see perched on the
mountain a neighborhood carving out its golden claim.
