Let the mermaids in my teacup distract us for a while


Ruthie Rose


She paused at the door and turned to take one last look at the place she had called home for so many years. Though every last detail had already been packed into boxes and taken away, all she could see was everything she had finally learned to leave behind.

Haiku – Grey Whispers


Rolling mists sweep in

With the dawn, filling the air

With untold secrets.

Unspoken Truth

Hiding the tears in her eyes, she smiled and looked away.

And in that smile, for the very first time, all that he could see were the walls he had once hoped she would never need to put up, and wondered how long they had actually been there without being noticed.

Haiku – Turns

As tides rise and fall,

Surely as the seasons change,

Chapters of my life.

Haiku – A New Chapter

A journey begins

Sailing away from what’s known

On the Winds of Change.

Haiku – Siren

She sang out sweetly

And in her song I could hear
My own heart breaking

Poem – Dawn Chorus

In darkness, we surrender as if by choice

To muted slumbers, in safe delight.

But it’s the tiny blackbird that finds his voice

There in the daunting dead of night.

His song cuts the silence, filling the sky

And from it, a spreading symphony is born.

Indeed, it’s the fire in your spirit which must never die,

Let it sing, like the blackbird, at each new dawn.

Haiku – Insomnia

Qualms rise like the tide,
Disrupting peaceful waters.
Sleepless ebb and flow.

Haiku – Wavelength

Two people talking.

A universe opening.

Time disappearing.
