Off They Went – Looking for Mo & Jo


, , , , , ,

Hi friends,

Still looking for my mojo, but Mo said no and Jo had to go, so here I am, my words, now my foe. 😩

I’ve been ill for two weeks now, some days are spent in bed. I’m hoping to kick this crap soon and get back to writing. Right now, I have no desire to do so. If you happen to see them, please send Mo & Jo back this way. I have cookies. 🍪

Hope you’re all well. Have a great weekend.

The storm fits my mood

As thunder rumbles above

Dark clouds wander by

Much like me, this dreary day

Looks are deceiving

Autumn’s Feast – #Haiku – #RonovanWrites

Apples, sweetly plump

Give way to an autumn feast

With luscious cider

Finders Keepers – #dark #poetry – #AugustWriting


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Cluttered, empty spaces, found, but left unkempt

Emotion thrown, strewn about, in moral contempt

Answers, unquestioned, doubt exuded, within

Why on Earth am I? And where shall I begin?

To put the broken pieces, puzzled, back together

No help, those, who only dwell in fairest weather

White clouds follow, over me, pours down the rain

Why is it, no matter what, praise becomes disdain?

Received, but never sent, animosity finds its space

However small, to penetrate, a sacred inner place

To smash the dreams, so broken, and overrun

Now I see where I am. And why I have begun.

Unraveling Threads – #poetry – #Tanka – #AugustWriting


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Haphazardly strung

A twisted barb penetrates

Unraveling threads

Inside, the core of despair

Tis humanity’s weakness
