Not All That Glitters

icicles,iced over wood,

  Not All That Glitters

the ground sparkles

as if fairies visited

in the night

that glitter is not gold, but ice

you will take a fall

if you do not look closely


I wrote this on January 15, 2017, for prompt 169 from #poemtheme on Twitter. This will be my last post for National Poetry Month as I am not feeling well. It’s been a tough week but I have prevailed and life goes on.


I Doodle, You ‘Ku 2014 – 06

At first this image gave me the feeling of spring, but the more I looked at it the more I thought of Fall.

prepare the meadow
for autumn’s arrival

Yay Words!


The concept is simple: Here’s a doodle. Now write a poem to accompany it!

Secrets of the Forest

While the ink is pouring out of the pen
I will write.
I will write while the river of
inspiration babbles in my ear.
As long as the fairies will whisper
the secrets of the forest
I will write them down.
because tomorrow’s dawn
might bring a wildfire
and sweep away the beauty
before I have time to
make a monument to it.
I will scribble and try to immortalize
the thing that caught my eye,
because even fairies die.
Then who will tell you
the secrets of the forest?


Do you try to write when the mood hits you?
