pumpkin haiku - Nov PAD day 30



Pumpkin’s on back porch
making space for new d├ęcor.
Lights and tinsel reign.

It’s Catching (On) - - Nov PAD day 29



It’s Catching (On)

Stop this cough, sneeze, sniffle,
wheeze, snuffle, spew
of cold words over everyone.
Cease the spread of heated hearsay,
transmission of infectious fever,
epidemic of vitriol over all
within reach of your virulent,
virtual voice.

Rather, offer up a muffler
to keep the wintry chill at bay,
umbrella, raincoat and rubbers
against the frigid, bitter squalls.
Let’s infect everyone instead, 
with a contagious case of
the most communicable
kindness.

I Want a Mulligan - Nov PAD day 28



I Want a Mulligan

I don’t care what you “winners” say.
It’s not supposed to end
this way.
The “villain” shouldn’t
get away
with everything
(he surely will).
It made you sing.
(It makes me ill.)

I want a do-over.
Let’s take two.
(I’m sure that that’s alright
with you?)
Just one more chance
to get it right,
before we say,
“That’s all,
good night!”

Dis(Re)membered - Nov PAD day 27



Dis(Re)membered

Maybe you don’t recall
but we’ve been here before.

Separation. Fragmentation.
Shattered, scattered,
into distinct bits –
shivers, splinters, slivers,
chips.

The aftermath’s an ache –
a break – bone deep
and all too real
laden with the hope
that some fractures
must (first) be fully broken
in order to wholly
heal.
