Shades: More Than Blue
(in three forms)
I
(Septolet)

Sky, sea,
Eggshell
of a Robin

Or a
Newborn’s eyes
That window
of ‘soul’
~

III
(Cherita)

Beyond the dream

Vague and opaque
That vision of success

When she transfers the
Sheets that dried by the sun
Onto the bed in her home

~
III
(pi-ku)

broken heart
awe
at the repair

invITation
(pi ku, tau ku, haiku, Septolet, Shadorma)

there, something –
‘it’
lurks in shadow
~
moon casts silver on ‘it’ –
red fox
sniffing the night air for rodents
~
While little kits rest
Vixens from the same skulk hunt
‘It’ is their duty
~
Where has the
Reynard gone?

‘It’ goes to
The village
Becoming a
Familiar spirit
~
Seasonal
Changes envelope
‘It’…the mood
Emotions
Looking and longing for more
Or less of magic…

“it”

Male foxes are known as dogs, tods or reynards, females as vixens, and young as cubs, pups, or kits. A group of foxes is referred to as a skulk, leash, or earth.

Play Right
(Shadorma, Septolet, pi ku)

Son of Son
Found some of Dad’s toy
Building bricks
Interlock –
Making boats, planes and other
Things he imagines
~
A short break
To refuel

And to
Color some
Pages
And a
Postal card
~
first autumn
day –
free from schedules

The Emerald Swallowtail is a very beautiful butterfly. The shimmering emerald color that often literally sparkles on the wings of this butterfly are simply stunning. When the light shines on the wings just right, you can see the emerald color sparkling like jewels. The Emerald Swallowtail goes by some other names, like Papilo palinurus, Burmese Banded Peacock, Moss Peacock, Green Moss Peacock and Princeps palinurus.

The Banded Peacock is a South Asian native, seen mostly throughout parts of India, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan. The lime green and dark black colors easily distinguish them from other species.

Crosscurrents
(Cherita, pi ku, tau ku, Collom Lune, Shadorma, Septolet.
American one sentence haiku, Reverse Cherita)

Turbulence

Wicked fast
Force unleashed

Uncontrollable tide
Ripping emotions from
the illusions of safety

rolling dice
seemed
the way to go

to make the unvoiced choice
to mend
or to completely severe ties

Opinions wavering, quivering
Like all that spilt milk
None cry for

Just get the
Mop there propped in the
Corner and
The bucket
Maybe some ‘Downy Flakes’ soap
To restore order

Remember
Grandmotherly
Advice and love

Especially
When there
Wasn’t the
Need for any
Words

…once again to revel in that envelope…

The illusions of safety
Ripping emotions from
Uncontrollable tide

Force unleashed
Wicked fast

Turbulence

September 14: Flash Fiction Challenge
September 14, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a riptide. How can it be used to move a story? It could be a stretch of turbulent water or a pull of another kind. Go where the prompt leads even if you find it unexpected.

I have used several short poetic forms in this piece. The instructions can all be found on the page called “Poetry Forms Old and New’ on my Gems blog where this piece is posted. Except for the one sentence American haiku (as stated), and the reverse Cherita, which I just made up today and is pretty self explanatory, I like how it works ending the piece.

While generally reveling is with music and drink, I think when a grandparent tickles you…
the feelings can be similar. Even without breath, hick-coughing, we are happy and at ease –
then as a child… 😉

seventeen years ago…
(Kelly Lune, Collom Lune, pi ku, tau ku, Shadorma)

for you I light flame
one candle
to remember you

for the parent
that I want to remember –
everyone else’s gift

all the time
you
gave of yourself

selflessly to those in
dire
need – though you often forgot…me

Tell me please
Am I that selfish
For wanting
To have had
Just a little more of you
To recognize me?

Shout out and thank you
To those states away helping…
Several phone calls later
the distance narrowed –
That all was mostly well there
Where a relative resides

While I’m not a fan
Of some social media
The information relayed
Showed a happy bunch
After lunch, survived Irma –
And for that, I am grateful

Thanks go to
A gent named Robert
Who at the
Hotline phone
Called me back with good news too,
Regarding ‘Irma’

hurricane
caused
people to link

hands clasp via airwaves
thank you
for bringing comfort and relief
