idle waters
the riverbank blinks
its crocodile eyes

 

Happy to have the above haiku published in Season 3 Episode 2 of the Haiku Pea Podcast. It’s the first podcast of 2020 and the theme was “animals”.

Poetry: Anger

anger
boiling
into the clouds

the red heat
of this waking dream
and the monster inside,
one eye open
one eye open
waiting
