5 Line Poetry

torn boat
in dry dock
on the shelf
origami propeller
hanging

man
runs late
for a appointment
checks time
stroking his beard

heavy crows
on a cable
watching cars
honking
traffic lights

cat
climbs
a cork board
push pins
hissing

car waits
at a stop sign
for a signal
revs motor
drinking coffee

a dog
growls
at strangers
barking
in the yard

smoke
wafts the room
circling
an ashtray
scorching cigarettes

the fog
obscures
a moth
grey sweater
lying in repose

a spotted owl
wind chime
strains its neck
turning
with the wind

daybreak
a sunflower
bends over
greeting
the lawn

weather balloon
floating
in an ocean
of forgiving
tears

rag doll
in the attic
sharing space
memories
covered in dust

wagon wheel
on its side
in the field
spreading wildflowers
in splinters

the sun
slowly climbs
a treehouse
flapping birds
on stilts

  5. So many lovely verses! Very well done. I think the rag doll really got to me having a rag doll that my mother made for me when I was five. I still sleep with her every night.

  7. Like little pictures at an exhibition.. I look carefully at each.. but it’s only in completeness I see the world.
