Magician

~

It’s time again for a Quadrille over at the Pub . The theme is ‘leaves’

The Magician
chewing on leaves
until show time –
hanging upside down,curling
your body into a J, wrapping
yourself in a gold studded shell
no cheap parlor trick – this
is the real thing –
you emerge
wearing a black and orange
cloak and
fly away

path

Carpe Diem #1030 “path”

inspiration for today is from a very talented haiku poet

[…] “Ah…and then there’s the path, always the path, there, to concentrate on.. ” […] Hamish Managua Gunn

crumbled stones along the path
only weeds remain
