Tideing Up

In senryu on 23/08/2015 at 9:19 am

There will come a time
I’ll lift up the sea’s carpet
sweep myself under.

It’s when you twist me
in the tightest knots that I’m
finally unleashed

NaPoWriMo (19) – Wrap

To be—————————————–
wrapped around and inside you
————————————–Is that too much to ask?

NaPoWriMo (8) – The Lie of Skin

In NaPoWriMo, senryu on 08/04/2013 at 3:36 pm

Grandfather’s skin lied.
Clear and clean and hiding a
mind broken by time.

Grandmother’s skin lied.
Wizened trojan horse hiding
God’s own whirlwind.

And my own skin lies.
You can’t see the spines and barbs
hidden underneath.

I’ve no trust of skin
So, my pretty, pretty thing,
Show me what’s beneath.

NaPoWriMo (2) – Waking Up

In NaPoWriMo, senryu, showerpoetry on 02/04/2013 at 8:03 am

Kitchen counter, the
taste of coffee on your lips
Morning’s not so bad.

Your little smile
as you look up at me
and lick your lips clean.


The Old Library

Leather and vellum
remember millennia
of Imperium.

Lovely obscenities
told only on the promise
that you will use them.

I am partial
to wines
that taste like you



In senryu on 07/11/2012 at 9:00 am

I have found
the certainty of dreams
in your arms.
