And falls, fails

PAD DAY 27 – A Mechanical Poem

Writing By The Book

She writes looking
at the book
breaking the words
into syllables
according to teacher
instructions

PAD DAY 26  - A Casting Poem

Casting for immortality

She saw somewhere once
A scene
That stuck
At the edge of sunset
Golden
An old grandfather
A very small boy
A lake shimmering
The little boy smiles
Up sparkling
Love
The grandfather
slaps the child’s face
Hard
Tears spring
Grandfather
Strokes the soft
Silky six year old cheek
And says
“Because my boy
I never wanted you
to forget this day
or me”


PAD DAY 25 An “Everyone (blank) poem

Everyone can end war

Everyone can end war
If every everyone everywhere
Simply wears a blind fold and
No clothes except perhaps some underwear
Everyone can end war






PAD DAY 24 – Auto Poem

Candy Apple

His first love
Was candy-apple red
And had a big engine
Under “her” hood
And was the only beauty
That Never let him down

~


auto-words
I wake
as a petulant child
stirring with sand
papered unease
irritated toes hanging
on the cusp of
irritating others
the sun too bright
the birds annoying
cackle grate
until
words coalesce
from the sharp shards
falling gently together
over tense shoulders
I am embraced in
the golden shimmer
the warble and wiggle
of a new day reconfigured
by automatic grace
gratefully savored
as a sigh releases
a smile and from
whirling head to
clenched toes
words springing
flow, tickle
rework
awakening

PAD DAY 23 Love and Anti-Love Poem


Love & Anti-Love - A Run 

Sparkling eyes
Fixed on Daddy
Nearing the finish
Line

Glittering eyes
Beyond the bag in hand
Nearing the finish
Line

Boston Marathon
2013

  1. Terrific finish, Pearl. Short, sweet, memorable; each a small gem in a necklace worn at the end of the month for spring. Great job.
