Embers

scattered in sand
embers of a saltwood fire
face to face with stars
her shimmering eyes spill
yards of velvet stained lust

This is a Tan Renga that I learned about from Carpe diem.  after a long time , some poetry interested me so tried my hand at linking my lines to the original haiku by Jane Reichhold.

This is also inspired by words from wordle 112 @ The Sunday Whirl

Sensible Art & Verse

Flying Down, 2006, by David Salle

“A for airplane
B for bums
C for colors
D for duck”
so goes the little rhyme
from the kid trapped in me
his giggles echo in my heart,
and the day sooms to smile free.

Please forgive me for this verse. I don’t know why I thought this way as soon as I noticed the airplane.

And now a haiku :

“a sensible art”
he said,showcasing this work,
“perhaps to the blind”
