oblivious — poem

The 4th in Chicago, over 100 degrees. When I ride to the prairie park it always astounds me how much cooler it is to be off of the highway. As I cycle, I see one thousand miracles and smile secretly at a young couple and their Iphone. How strange are they young, or maybe, how strange am I.

in the wild — friday fictioneers — unsubmitted

100 words, written for the Madison Woods Friday Fictioneers, constructive criticism welcomed.

I really struggled here, and didn’t link it back, instead starting over with brambles. If you like one over the other, I would be interested in your thoughts of why – bw

Adventure kept you young — you always laughed
secrets undiscovered, hands held delighted seeking
we two so full of youth it barely mattered

Traversing woods near river’s lazy banks
cross mossy paths, silent footsteps, ancient shady trees
where mosquitoes buzzed our only witness

Brilliant sunlight, secret grove, an Eden
Where abundant berries awaited
Unplundered by the wild and ravenous birds

Sun warmed, we feast and feed each other,
as shadows slowly lengthen
words cease and other hungers stir awake

Eyes sparkling blue, so deep inviting
taste of lips so sweet, delighting
I gently move to share the secrets of your heart


brambles –

wild rasberies — we called them brambles, picture here

Sometimes, there isn’t ever a good time to say goodbye.

nymph

100 words, inspired by: Madison Woods

Nymph
alluring, I think of you
in field and stream, beneath Wyoming sunset
flowing water, cold, glacier fed
where pools seem quiet and unmoving

Motionless
I wait for you
bring them out from hiding here to feed
a lure this hidden hook where taste
is pain and death for you, but sustenance to me

Anticipating
I know he’s there
I know the hunger coursing through his heart
but hooks and line, this world
full with danger filled

waiting
we drift along through time and current
linked forever by monofilament line
until rejected I return by moonlight
canned food, restless night
