Manor Ave.

For one summer
I was invincible,
Flying underneath
the trees.

A pink bicycle
was my wings,
three friends
sharing one joyride.

Learned how to fly
thanks to my ducks
Melissa & Kim

One block
in a one square mile
town
seemed like the world.

Tracks
encapsulated
by wet cement,
flanked by fireflies
held close by August nights

Days of smiling and shrieking
bellies full of slushies.

I never rode again.

Saturday Haikus

At the stop, waiting

People coming and going

Envying the cars

 

 

 

********************************************

In the heights of life

City viewing paradise

Diversity park

Hump Day

Jersey jungle drive

Dodging tractor trailershots

Crazy morning rides

 

 

Scar, cat scratched

pink fade

Look down, all I see

is him

Now faithfully his

 

 

Answers deep within

A voice waiting to erupt

Listening to  truth

 

 

 

 

 

Weekend

Freedom, mustang run

Exploring under the sun

Weightless

unbound

air

 

 

Jersey honking wars

Anger contests. blaring

horns

on each avenue

 

 

Whisker wet kisses

Purring perfection

perched paws

Pretty coat, eyes glow
