He’d always been her golden child, born after years of sorrow.
He’d always been her precious jewel, the promise of tomorrow.
He’s gone to take the saffron robes, been hers only to borrow.
“You are too late,” Sea lion said to Polar bear, “the ice is gone, the fish moved on.”
Polar bear’s heart sank but he stretched a smile over the hunger pangs.
“I know,” he managed. “Berries are moving in. Good thing I’ve gone vegetarian.”
As they rode through the smoke, through the night, to the light
Amidst trees, atop hooves, in the saddle upright
Sun kissed heads, offered heart, till homecoming delight.
The house snored and stomachs sighed content
But pots and pans and ladle, towel, bowl and plate
Slept not a wink awaiting dawn inside the kitchen sink …
She faced the sea’s relentless roil, the churning, fuming foam.
She found a quiet in the space
Between the breath of waves, a home.
For Three Line Tales
Bathed in light
Wreathed in night
May your spirit gain height.
They rush down flights of stairs to the rumble of trains
Weave through masses of people again and again
Take the B, take the D, take the F, take the N.
The stage is set to hushed repose
Incipient characters rush forth
Turn simmering muse to full on prose.
