Butterfly Cinquain 10

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

Butterfly Cinquain 8

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

Butterfly Cinquain 4

10 August, 2016
beads of
moisture on blade
of grass, scent of dampness
permeates the misty air, rain –
drops fall,
soft and mild on earth and leaf, as
these April showers drift
in on the south-
west wind.

tanka 12

10 September, 2015
disconnected mind
I need earth on my fingers
and breeze to feel “me”
isolated and inside
I cannot connect at all
I wrote this tanka while I was recovering from chemo earlier this year…

Moisture – 3

11 March, 2014
cold rain smell, wetness seeping, soaking through grass into earth, drenching, chilling sun; where is summer’s warmth?
