April 2014 – National Poetry Month



April 8 – Haiku

Oh how darkness loves
Both happy sighs and sorrow
And hides both from view.

April 9 – Free verse

When hand hits flesh
Soul burns and shrivels.
When hand caresses
Heart and mind soars.
Proof that we still have
God’s gift to us, of creation
How should we use such power?

April 10 – Haiku

The whiteness stands out
Bright against those shades of brown
Oh no! A gray hair!

April 11 – An Ogden Nash-esque

Instead of being neutral,
Saying something positive
Is much better than being negative
Ion to say.

April 12

Knock Knock
Who’s There?
Crazy Cat Lady who hums showtunes.
Mom! Your sister’s here! 

April 13 – Twitter poem (less than 140 characters)

My comforter croons warmly in my ear
As I lie in its dark embrace.
My bladder tugs the coat of my consciousness
Like a five-year old begging for sweets.

April 14 – Haiku

The howling winds blow
Giving rise to a deep need
To snuggle and nap

This week’s picture is from a trip to Assisi, Italy, in December 2009. I have no idea where they put the prisoner.

About Shukmeister

I have a great fondness for chocolate chip cookie dough, 80's science fiction movies, and thunderstorms.
