April PAD Challenge — Day Twenty-One

April 21, 2015

Prompt: Write a “what you are” poem, or… Write a “what you are not” poem.

The Bitter Truth
(Senryu/Haiku series)

I am…

a rollercoaster
careening out of control
jumping well-worn tracks

a steamship cruising
near iceberg-laden waters
no hope, Titanic

a well-beaten wound
festering beneath the skin
no time for healing

I am not…

a respected robin
hunting breakfast for its chicks
renewal of life

an adored penguin
seeking forever her mate
faithful until death

a treasured garden
harvested with tender care
nourishing the heart
