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

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”.

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

by Caddo

 

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

Fortune’s Fashion Statement

by Caddo

Wife’s fortune cookie
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

by Caddo

I~

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.

Love Unquenchable

by Caddo

Water
Falling
On water—
Droplet by drop
Rain turns
The color of the pool—
It is the same water.

Wife’s total recall
Of things imaginary
Proves entertaining—
Till I slip up, forget her
Most urgent realities.

Clanging wind chimes–

Once were lullabies.

Anguished Heart

by Caddo

(A Villanelle)

She was ne’er ablaze, neither mere flash of prism’s light—
Within her depths, burned darkest smoldering fire.
Anguished heart—pure love and passion would endless fight.

She’d dance for all to watch throughout the night—
And the soldiers, sabers resting, offered coin to hire.
She was ne’er ablaze, neither mere flash of prism’s light.
