Leftovers

LEFTOVERS

Trying to use up
These bits and pieces
She never finished

Cornflour
Paper tissues
(Bless you)

I don’t use much of either
See, me, I prefer cotton
Prefer wholemeal

It’s eighteen months
And there’s plenty left yet
She doesn’t need them now

Let Me Explain: Senryu

LET ME EXPLAIN

He says not a word
He offers her a flower
Nods his head, smiles

Social distancing? Not a problem. ❤️ 🙂

One Hundred : Four By Six

A Valentine’s Day poem?

Certainly. (Who needs clichés)

ONE HUNDRED

He was seventy-two
While she was twenty-eight.
A round number – Perfect!
Though only they thought that.

Attached: Senryu

ATTACHED

Miss you every day
Though my glass is half full
It is half empty

Three Steps To Love

THREE STEPS TO LOVE

One: I think
I love you.

Two: I learn
to love myself.

Three: I know
we are one.

Opposites

OPPOSITES

The opposite of love
Is not hatred but fear
Hatred is simply
An armour for fear

Darkness is not
The opposite of light
It is simply
An absence of light

Novitiate

NOVITIATE

I ask myself
Do I love you?

Is grass green?
Is the sky blue?

Look deep
Do I love you?

Is grass grass green?
Is the sky sky blue?

Look deeper
Do I love you?

Is grass just green?
Is the sky just blue?

Do I love you?
Look deeper yet

Sweet Permeations: Shadorma

SWEET PERMEATIONS

Love just is
In all directions
At all times
Whenever
We choose to stop blocking it
Simply let it be

To Show A True Face: Senryu

TO SHOW A TRUE FACE

May courage find me
Or at least a safe harbour
While I give the same

Pride And Prejudice: Tanka

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

They said not a word
For not a word need be said
A cloud of silence
Always accompanied them
Others looked on bathed in awe
