The Miracle Of Birth: Shadorma

THE MIRACLE OF BIRTH

If I may
I beg to announce
A healthy
Shadorma
No congratulations please
Simply played midwife

A Letter Away: Senryu

A LETTER AWAY

Beware and be alert
Posting: so close to posing
That they can switch rôle

Thwarting The Gloom: Senryu

THWARTING THE GLOOM

Lights switched on midday
Not shameless exorbitance
… Poetic licence

On The Job (Fuck Me): Shadorma

ON THE JOB (FUCK ME)

Poet’s job
To spark and nurture
Both free thought
And open
Emotion, even open
Doors to other realms

Poets Out Loud: Four By Six

POETS OUT LOUD

Let’s share our poetry
For without that I fear
It might quickly descend
Into onanism

Unfinished Love Poem

UNFINISHED LOVE POEM

Lay it aside for a while
Maybe days or weeks
Sometimes even years

Till all falls into place
A significant poem will
Always find its moment

And in that moment
Their writer will also
Find a completeness

Those not significant
Reveal themselves as such
And are easily thrown away

Poet As In A Mirror: Tanka

POET AS IN A MIRROR

Inspire me please
Saying the unexpected
Revealing your deeps
Encouraged by your courage
To write something worth reading

Poet Recalled: Shadorma

POET RECALLED

The bladder
Grabs the microphone
And cries out,
“Come back here.
Bugger creativity.
Prioritise, son!”

À La Mcluhan: Cinqku

À LA McLUHAN

Writing
In white ink
On white paper
Made what she had to say
Quite clear

Treading Water

TREADING WATER

Busy all day long
Reading, thinking, replying
Inbox remains full
