Pull Up the Turnips: Micropoems from February Week 2-3

Each week I harvest a few small poems and haikus I wrote inspired by writing prompts (such as @microprompt on Twitter). This week’s are mostly haikus, because it’s National Haiku Writing Month! #NaHaiWriMo

turnips 2016.jpgbruised peach sunset with
magnolias in full bloom
commuter train howls


pull up the turnips
rap the brassica rapa
roast with rosemary


quiet clouds drift with
egret under mauve sunset
flow and stillness dance


life in the office
a clickety clackety
I can’t find the trees


if only you would
speak the language of silence
I’d understand you


literate turtle
knows many languages, but
not my native tongue


a strange sensation
I can’t feel her anymore
she went to china


darting to and fro
my curious colibri
might have A.D.D.


hello waxing crescent:

a sly sliver moon
cheshire gato grinning
what is your secret?


Primary season
winter of our discontent
love and fear wrestle
