Must I leave the earth that I love,
Transit the most dangerous place…

Whittled Words – Catena Rondo Poem

He took the name from ‘catena’, which means chain, and connected it with ‘rondo’, which means circle. And the poem is a bit of a ‘chain circle’, because of its intense repetition within stanzas and within the poem as a whole.

A Hidden Family

We thought our childhood unique,
A dysfunction so truly rare,
Taught to listen not to speak,
The secrets we cannot share.

Silent Words

They are unspoken in every wanting glance,
Adoration and longing…

Take a Breath

From darkened rooms and little troll holes,
The intolerant are given roles,
And speak their lines of displeasured rage,
From behind thick curtains just off stage.

Love Light

This is not how we were made,
To cast others in our shade,
Treatment based on some earned grade,
Regardless of dues they paid.

A Fairy Tale

Oh, to be that silly Jack,
Hand in hand with lovely Jill…

The Losing of You

It is a disconnect,
A sinister flaw,
So hard to detect,
Invisible to all.

Whittled Words – Magic 9 Poem

The Magic 9 is a newer form and relatively unknown. In fact, I couldn’t find a creator of the form, though it appears to have been inspired by a poet misspelling the word ‘abracadabra’.

The Death of Me

Your hands soft as kitten’s paws,
Hide the sharp and killing claws.

Flannel with Faith

Embracing imperfection with faith, flannel, & fresh air
