Beyond the Gate #haiku #photography

“Of all languages, Japanese is by far the richest in onomatopoeic elements, especially of the simpler variety, in which the sound of the word is directly an imitation of the thing. I had never heard of onomatopoeia until I discovered haiku in the late eighties, but I learned through the years that haiku are made, written,Continue reading “Beyond the Gate #haiku #photography”

Rabbit Hole #poetry #photography

Scampering off toward life’s forest wily fox in hot pursuit  I, more than casual onlooker as your steps affect lasting fate * innocence may be your destruction nibbling away at fresh grass darkness lurks in the shadows you look aware much too late * what I watch from the screen door  hopes of holding back theContinue reading “Rabbit Hole #poetry #photography”

Gateway to Death #poetry #photography

Bolted twice and once padlocked Hairs rose on my back as I passed “what can fools fear here” the crows mocked death’s never taken its last * Boney fingers in a long, far reach striving against iron grate “warm healthy blood I offer one taste  no fear there’s the strong, sturdy gate “ * bloodContinue reading “Gateway to Death #poetry #photography”

Weekly Photo Challenge “In The Background” #photography #B&W #poetry

Lurking in the background just beyond my sight is a shadowy presence  evokes in me much fright * will darkness creep still slowly? passing through the gate what is it dark is holding? I gasp at what’s at stake ** Please bar the door – protect us do not unleash the beast can’t you hear itContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge “In The Background” #photography #B&W #poetry”

Complicated #poetry #photography #poetsunited

Always at cross angles like waves against me crash wind whipped standard * your eyes flash multiple thoughts converging life never to be the same * Blocking my way shadowing my step muddying my resolution * your eyes flash multiple thoughts converging my life never to be the same * Sandpaper like friction seabirds fightContinue reading “Complicated #poetry #photography #poetsunited”

A Gateway to the Damned #PEN #flashfiction

The knob creaked as I gave it a twist. I’d been able to breathe last time I’d been here. Imprisoned behind an unlocked gate of decorative iron, I watch the world carry on without me. Shadows beckon; so soon shall I dance. I am plummeted to the world beyond my fears. My mind bleeds for whatContinue reading “A Gateway to the Damned #PEN #flashfiction”
