puffed clouds
like inverted
saucers, snowy white
blue sky, slightly blurred around the
edges;
what if they are not just a sky-
scape formation but that
aliens are
watching?

lurking
in a rotting pile
feeding on snakes and voles,
wrapped in wreaths of grass and garland
I drink
plant life and soul, ooze out bitter
blood, scratch at wooden walls;
dark ghoul of your
compost

butterfly cinquains flit away…

8 September, 2016
Thank you for following me through my journey with Butterfly Cinquains. I hope you enjoyed them and were inspired to write your own! A couple more of these cinquains may find their way into my blog posts in the future…
I will be continuing to blog here, but with some ch-ch-changes…
I will also be blogging at Pure Haiku where my guests and I will be exploring the meaning of LEAF. I hope you can join us there on 16th September 2016.
I am taking a very short break from this blog, but will be back here once more on Monday, 19th September 2016… See you all then!

earthern
mysteries are
dark but not always as
deathly as they seem; fragrant soil
alive
with potential for life as worms
bring oxygen into
darkness – seeds live
again

leeks just
on the turn with
manky scallions and
potatoes and celery; what
a good
soup can be made from old food if
you take the time to chop
out the bad bits –
frugal

blind worm
writhes, knots himself
into a pink and red
cat’s cradle, I slice the earth clod
and he
tumbles into utter darkness
as the brown soil crumbles,
no tomb for him –
he’s home

seedlings
burgeon as
year waxes, I transplant
nine young sunflowers into pots,
pressing
rich compost firmly with gloved hands
and watering them in.
Looking forward –
summer
