Poem A Day Challenge: April 13-15


Tired of poetry, yet? I hope not! Here are my latest for the 2015 April Poem A Day Challenge:

April 13, 2015
Prompt: confession

Venus in the sky
your arm around my waist
a crescent moon hangs

there are no stars
when you say you love me
cloudy midnight sky

stars fade to dawn
your confessions break me
morning sun rises

– – –

April 14, 2015
Prompt: honest/dishonest

I. True
cool spring day
purple mountains
cut through the sky

II. Mirage
summer heat
bends the air
mountains flicker

– – –

April 15, 2015
Prompt: adjective (choose one and make it the title)

I. Pale
the air turns pale
as light dwindles
fading sunset

II. Windy
evening gales
push through the pines
with whistling speed

  1. Tired of your poetry? You must be joking. 🙂

    By the way, I told my students a little bit about your research into real traditional haikus today. I think it went over their heads (they are, after all, 7th and 8th grade), but as soon as I found out it was Haiku Day, I couldn’t stop thinking about you and your awesome poetry. 🙂
