Pet Roar

There is no roar

like the roar of a roar

if you could trap it

confine it

release it at will

let it out

when you need to

then call it back

your roar

is a good pet

and what good companions

are for

________________

dVerse prompt on the word roar

Pet Roar

Crack

you thought it was whole

now there is a space

that can’t be filled or glued

you don’t know how it got there

it has left you trembling

you puzzle over

how such a perfect thing

has now a crack

because you smoked it

dVerse prompt to write a quadrille using the word “crack”.  Felt like this prompt opened up to a look at addiction.

Crack

Eruption

Plumes of ash

hot rocks under foot

we climb up to Mt Etna

no earthquake today

the air quivers with sound

of explosions underground

vent and spew on your own time

change can come quickly

expect the expectable

in a world of the predictable

Cloth

I gave my sewing machines away. Now there is only cloth here; corduroy, tweeds, raw silks and purple satin. Someday the needle will rise and fall again, guiding thread into fabric, connecting pieces together with looping threads.

creating stitches 
holding tight this creation
magnificent cloth
