Remember Matt Forrest Essenwine’s delicious apple poem from our Fall Treats trio? He’s back with 4 more little gems.
Beauty of Cataclysm
their planetary children;
a massive radioactive flood
of hydrogen & flames, screams
death in millions
I like how they twinkle.
Upon Setting Down the Pen
I crafted a poem
the finest penned;
speaking to souls
of lovers & life,
broken hearts & death.
upon my work
My creativity had run dry, never to return.
The next day, I wrote something else.
The tide rolls in, the tide rolls out;
the ocean’s mighty fingers reach
toward the sandy shelter of
a home upon the bending beach.
As starlight shimmers, stirred about
beneath the breakers, could it be…
the lone, unending shoreline longs
to find its home amidst the sea?
Abandonment (a haiku)
Sparrow sweetly sings
her mate, on the ground.
