More Small Wonders

Monday 47 photo wordle-47-feb-9_zps2d4890d9.png
 
 


 
~~ 1 ~~
 
banks of the canal
littered with Styrofoam cups—
last night’s wild party
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
a broken paddle—
her only means for forcing
the canoe upstream
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
A dent in the door—
the madman throws his hammer
at his hapless wife.
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
Even the maple syrup
drenching my morning pancakes
cannot still the storm.
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
improvised scripture
scribbled beneath a picture
in a children’s book
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
the old woman’s shawl
unraveling thread by thread
along with her dreams
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
ripples on the pond
where old Basho’s frog jumped in
following the crowd
 
~~ 8 ~~
 
elegance
of deserts waiting
for spring rain
 
~~ 9 ~~
 
languishing
in the oubliette
a traitor
 
~~ 10 ~~
 
her excess baggage—
hoping no one will notice
the overhead bin
 
~~ 11 ~~
 
the redwing blackbirds
petitioning the frog pond
for a midday snack
