Fall’s Fingers

by Caddo

Long fingers of fall
Reach, curling—coppered, gilt-edged,
Weathered verdigris—
Chilly grip mocks sun’s pert rays.
Winter’s spirit—muffled glee;
Azure breaths, he blows my way….

Red Raspberries

by Caddo

Tart red raspberries–
Intoxicating as wine
To this autumn heart.
“Gone-Summer” lingers in juice,
Keeps poet’s blood running rich.

Sweet Saturday…

by Caddo

Rich dark cocoa night
With early snowflakes, shaken
Down; confectioner’s
Sugar, sweet powder drifting…..
Melt-in-your-mouth, piece of cake.

Happy Birthday to Me!

by Caddo

Yes,
One
More year
Buried neat
Beneath wisdom’s blooms—
Blue forget-me-nots, tiny jest.
No longer Natalie Wood, but creative bones still
Bend, move with limber poetic verve; ever more youthful spirit than in time swept by.

Plush Peril (Limerick)

by Caddo

You know it’s a bad, arrful day
When, e’er sober—no substance holds sway—
Yet your world gives a tug,
Sends you toppling off rug—
Glad the floor’s just a half-inch away.

Overcast Heart

by Caddo

(Fibonacci poem form)

Shroud
Lost sun
September
Weekend, sans colors
Overcast heart, thoughts floundering
Speaking of him in past tense—no facts, but fading faith.

Leaves drape, silver-green—
Pale painted postcard pretty;
Cool apparition
This sticky September day—
Indian summer come fey.

Guarding the night for men’s dreams
Which can’t breathe by day

Diamante– Grace

by Caddo

Poetry challenge:  Diamante. 

 

Grace
Sacrificial, generous
Saving, transforming, inspiring
More than love, amazing—Most simple eloquence
Sobbing, murmuring, singing
Desperate, grateful
Prayer

Diamante– Love, Loss

by Caddo

Love

Fiery, breathless

Waiting, writing, whispering

Joyfulness of heart—Full heart of empty ache

Mourning, writing, sleeping

Breathless, endless

Loss

Poetry Challenge–Diamante

“Pain and Wind Chimes”

Pain
Relentless demon
Roaring, raging, pummeling
Rampant grinding of gears—Deft drawing breeze
Jangling, dancing, still
Copper piping
Chimes

Weight of Passions

by Caddo

Incarnadine sun,
Heavy with full weight of Day’s
Passions, still burning—
Nonetheless falls gracefully,
Bleeding into cobalt waves.

I can hear my love, calling
From blush-dusted clouds
On the cheeks of our old sky.
Says he’s lonely for my touch—

Chimes of August

by Caddo

Hear the chimes, they ring:
“Listen! Listen to the cries—
A mother, heart-torn;
Anguish-splintered, insulted
By justice a-grieved, forlorn”.

Violation

by Caddo

A child of fourteen—
And he was her school teacher;
More, a reprobate.
Not one occurrence, but months—
Betrayed, she ended her life.

Fourteen years, all gone—
He received mere thirty days.
Judge indicted her—
Said she was beyond her years,
Multiplied atrocity.

Limerick– “Cook and Baker”

by Caddo

I know a round cook and baker–
She’s good of heart, no mere faker.
What she makes, she gives away–
Loves to bless people’s day
(Else, she’d be huge as a half-acre).

Leaving Moon

Sheepish, Leaving Moon—
You cast a half-smile to me,
Over your shoulder.
How flirtatious you’ve become—
Now that compromise we’ve won!

Predicts she’ll make a name in
The field of fashion.
She strikes a chic, fetching pose–
I muffle laugh with coughing.

August Full Moon Fibonacci

Veiled
In blue
Suspicion,
Beauty rises—pearled
Perfection, silver sphere; floats up,
Balloon-like, above froth-spiked waves, clouds on cobalt sea.

Limerick for Our Benefactor

by Caddo

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

There’s a fine Belfast gent, name of Harry,

Whose grand invite, at first, made me wary–

But I conquered my dribbles,

Put ink to paper, penned scribbles–

Now I’m named with his Corner, legendary.

Limerick– “The Temptress”

by Caddo

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

The Temptress, a bit of a loon,

Was stunning and made strong men swoon.

They all kept close eye

On gold orb in night sky–

Lest she turn monster-y by Full Moon.

Limerick Challenge

by Caddo

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

There once was a poet so stoked

And not from a substance she smoked.

No, it was prayer power–

She sought God each hour,

Lest she find her talent revoked.
