window haiku

Blue bricks surround me
if I had a window here
I’d watch life evolve

seasons shifting soon
fallen leaves covered in snow
white blanket hides all

then, I’m suspecting
the bitter cold will subside
as sprouting buds break

suddenly, color
inviting escape outside
enticing climate

heat quickly becomes
pervasive, yet so welcome
lazy freedom days

NaNoWriMo #10 (ending near)

NaNoWriMo#6 (Fleeing notice)

He stumbles into the classroom, arms and legs flailing. I search for his pursuer, as surely no one would be so flamboyant in entrance without being chased. But there is no one seeking to capture him. No one, it seems, even notices he is here. He sits hunched over a notebook at his desk. A […]

NaNoWriMo #5 (Celebrity)

Zooming down the street, it’s hard to believe he’d even noticed the  25 MPH sign every few blocks. Big ol garbage truck swings side to side as it navigates the neighborhood searching for forest green trash bins. Dangerously, he switches between lanes, oblivious to the direction of traffic. The two collectors jump from opposite sides […]
