No doorways, no windows, no walls
No shelter here on the ground
No standing and no safe place to fall
Just the promise of this distant sound
Bells are ringing all over the world

Haiku for the day (Reposted from Camille's comments)

Here's a little thing I composed for Camille's (littlebird blue) blog in her comments. Sometimes I just wacked upside the head in a poetic fashion (the muse isn't always nice).

Flower drunk bees lilt
Sated from sex down the street
The bicycle waits

And here is Camille's picture that inspired it:


Thanks, Camille.

No worries Camille. thanks for letting me repost over here. I've been giving some thought (again) to writing straight poetry. It's not what I really want for my full writing career, but I used to be pretty good at it (maybe publishable), but I never really thought of using poetry as a "reader building" exercise.

Aimee, thanks and welcome (as long as you're not the new comment spam).
