4 short poems



I started a few poems in my notebook, then waited for further inspiration. It didnt come so I thought well maybe these are just four little pieces in and of themselves.


A cacophony of birds, lawn mower,
airplane, bullfrog, fan
here in this cabin
usually engulfed in silence.



June--before the cabin becomes
unbearable in the heat
windows open
loneliness dissolves in spring.






This wet summer passes
and I have made no decision
as to my fate.
In my chair I stare
out the window
fall asleep like a narcoleptic
my dizzy self staggers
and curls into cat curves.

The green tree frogs
call in the dusk
back and forth an echo
of friendship.

Ah, Suki, all four of these vignettes are stunning...I feel that now I am beginning to know you so well, I can *read* behind the lines and feel what you feel...

I have one more week of "Rings"....and my life will
S-L-o-W down....let's talk soon!

I hope the sun is shining, the Frogs are croaking and all the banners are wafting in the wind up in the Cloutie Glen.

Love to you and Bibs,

♥ Robin ♥

Suki I agree that they are poems unto themselves. Wonderful. I like them all but I just love the last one. I can just hear the party of friends going strong.

Perfect reflections and descriptions of your Spring...poignant and true.

Your poetry is very beautiful. They have a haiku feel to them. Moments in time captured with just a few words. You transport us into your space ....

P.s. I will take you up on mending a few holes in jeans :)
I would love to stitch some love and friendship into them ...

Suki,
I also think these short poems are whole unto themselves. No need to add anything more! They are evocative.
