a lover’s kiss
soft as a plum blossom
sweet dreams

Collaboration for Peace – 6

It’s Sunday (actually it’s Saturday but I’m traveling all day Sunday and won’t be able to post) which means another Collaboration For Peace! Mishand I are happy to share our creations and hope that they can inspire you in some small way.

Peace Comes

peace comes not from inky
words on paper
or notes sung by choirs of angels
it comes instead when two souls
reach across the gap of
their differences
to find commonality

Wipers

long black arms
keeping rhythm

squeak,flop
squeak, flop
squeak, flop

trying vainly to
wipe away the
falling raindrops
on our windshield

as we count the miles to home

Victoria has challenged us to write a poem in the style of imagism

Word Weary

this poem is a little
stained
strained and
stretched
across the page
it’s been reworked
reformed
reimagined
rolled up
ironed out
let out – taken in
unravelled
stitched to
gether
crinkled in my pocket
erased and re-
scribbled
in crayon
this poem is
just
worn-
out

Eloquent Liar

she had a gift
that something special
all who heard her
speak believed
and seemed un-
able to think for
themselves
she was smooth like
polished copper
her smile was
genuine, her touch
warm and welcoming
oh, yes –
you were sure you
were her best friend
her confidante
she was the person-
ification of
mendaciloquent
I would have
fallen for her lies
too – if she were not
me
