April’s PAD — Day Eight

April 8, 2014

Two for Tuesday PAD prompt: write a violent poem. write a peaceful poem.


The Demolition

Your voice slams into my face
and I brace for the full-force wrecking ball
that I know will come next
You crash into me
again and again and again
’til I am in manageable pieces
’til you can remove my esteem
one brick at a time
And all the while, you are building me anew
Forcing me into new molds and crevices
until I barely exist
just the exterior looks familiar
Shaking and alone, I await your voice
and the demolition begins
over and over and over
until I am dust beneath your feet


“Peaceful” Haiku Series

Spring, early morning
the dew drips from daffodils
I mindfully watch

the sun scurries up
tree branches raised in honor
praise for a new day

a calm and a hush
descends upon park benches
squirrels quietly play

a moment of peace
before humans awaken
springing forth blinded
