Gaia’s Memoirs No.25

April showers fall.
Romantic earthworms surface.
Little Stints have lunch.

Haiku

Listen

From behind the face,
Instances impact between
Eternity’s drips.

 

Caledonia

Volcanic titans
Flain by Gaia’s elements,
Land of sheep and bards.

 

Pigeons

One white and one black,
Against a grey, cloudy sky:
Monochrome moment.

 

Don’t be Silly

For a billion years
This earth has recycled life;
It belongs to us.

 

Golden Kill

Rabbit watches hawk
Swooping down to catch a mouse…
Alas! poor rabbit.

 

More coming soon…

Dragon

A claw to gouge the craggy feldspar face,
A fang that’s meet to chew the brittlest flint,
A scale to thwart the cleaving cutlass trace,
Through sparks and brume your fiery eyes a-glint.
Behind hooked-claw, a jealous rage serrating,
Behind sharp-tooth a taste for mortal flesh,
Behind bronze scale a thrown-down gage awaiting,
In scathing eye a hungry look of death;
And looming on the threshold of your parlour,
Intent to raid and steal your hoarded treasure,
Two-score and ten of juicy men in armour,
To satisfy and stay your hunger’s pleasure;
For thirty-days you’ll dine on manly grub,
But where to put the bones—now there’s the rub!
