AlieNation

Sometimes we think 
Perhaps we are not 
Of this world and more 
 
Often than not, we 
Actually believe it— 
Until we look 
 
In the mirror and 
In that proverbial blink 
Of an eye can’t 
 
Unbelieve it.

Lux Sit Found Not Wanting

The first thing 
Each dawn gives you remains 
 
The last thing you wish 
To give up.

Orientations: Ways And Means

Left to its own means, 
The world will follow 
Your meanderings 
 
To the ends of the Earth 
And back if you let it, 
Or leave you forever 
 
Facing true north 
If you won’t.

Betcha Haven't Heard This One

In reply 
To the butcher’s 
Question about how 
 
Much lamb to cut, 
The village 
Priest raised his 
 
Pudgy right 
Hand high, as if getting 
Ready to bring an imaginary 
 
Cleaver down 
To halve that fantastic 
Looking carcass hanging up- 
 
Side down 
In front of him, 
When he was cut 
 
Short at the apex 
By the first peal 
Of lugubrious church 
 
Bells prompting him 
To blurt out—“Oops, 
In that case, let’s go 
 
Whole hog with it,” 
As he followed through with his 
Stroke of good luck
 
In one deliciously executed 
Priceless swoop.

Starstruck And Fanciful Fairytale Spinster Muse

Impetuous and prone to become
Smitten with every hack-acting 
Syrupy Tom, Dick, and Harry 
Who threw you the slightest 
Askance glance, thank 
Your lucky stars you managed 
To come this far and never 
Once fell head-over-heels 
For that cheesy, pock-marked 
Man in the moon or even worse, 
Ended up wart-bespangled 
And hitched to a croaking, 
Ludicrous toad in drag.

Haiku: Thistles

Waves of silver mauve 
Rippling in the slightest wind— 
Itch to go elsewhere.

Your head above troubled waters 
In a sea flush with sharks? Why not

Take the plunge, we’ll have you 
 
High and dry, head over heels 
And walking on water straight 
To the Promised Land no
Strings attached.

Haiku: Don't Look Now But

A well’s planted here 
Between two thin cypresses— 
It’s full of eels' eyes.

Poem Of Your Life

Finding the right 
Words for it should not be 
 
Your sole concern,
But if it is, learn how 
 
To make the best of it.
