#MicropoetryMonday – January 2 – 8, 2017

Here’s all of the micropoems I’ve written this past week! Some were previously shared on Twitter & others are brand new! Enjoy!

****
Ack! I feel panicked,
all the static,
unnecessary. 
It’s falling off the edge
into the unknown that’s so scary.
New Year. Same me. Wild.
Nomadic.
****
The younger generation
would rather fight
with the older one. Us
tweeners (in-betweeners)
sit here in disbelief.  We’re
strengthening our vision
muscles with all the
eyerolling.
****
“Statue”

It was too still. 
I wished you a good sleep & 
you listened. 
For once, you heard me. 
Do voices reach you now, statue? 
Cold as stone.
****
“New Beginnings”
Through the door
we spoke of fresh starts,
our new beginnings
What of old beginnings?
What about the walls we put up
to get here?
****
“Caress”
Constellations
form
on the small of your back
to me
I reach out
barely
touching you
A starry eyed,
cold shoulder caress
****
Tiptoe the delicate thread
 of life 
Where
leaning too far either way
throws you off
 Balance
despite & in spite of the chaos
****
Fall in formation
with the dear, darling drones
Commonplace captives,
Slaves to phones
Swapping screens for skin,
Tones for bones
****
Your presence-
the top of your eyelids
behind the newspaper-
makes time between stops
more bearable & I’m a long way from home
****
“Games”
Sharper wit, broken claws,
 -a cold & empty cage
A full bellied feline-
the only evidence left behind
of these cat & mouse games
****
Haiku:
I was smitten by
her sparkling eyes and
the stories they could tell me
****
Haunted enchantment–
that glimmer in your eye was
terribly soothing
****
It was the breath of
his first kiss that awakened
her soul’s native tongue
****
VSS (Very Short Stories):
The planchette covered wall confused him.
“It’s the eye that matters, the window,”
Seer says.
“They let us glimpse them. Don’t forget.”
****
“Eyes”
Miraculously, I glimpsed the beast’s eyes before they devoured me.
****
