dreamtime kangaroos
waltzing walruses and toads
asking you to dance
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

Asking you to dance,
pinprick slips of dragonflies
diving through the air.
    Here for the in-betweens and the left-behinds, the unconsidered,
    the out-of-this-world.

  • Pronouns? Any, to be honest!
  • I spend a sizeable chunk of my time in Poem a Week and the Worst Poem thread.
  • You can also come yell at me in WFPs.

diving through the air,
rain becomes river water,
a drop; an ocean.

A drop, an ocean;
the small raindrop explodes and
submerges my mind.
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.

Leaves of summer drop
Into the cold stream water
That has stolen my voice.

(@Gravitem for this thread you have to use a version of the last line of the last haiku, for the first line of your own haiku)

that stolen voice heard,
echoing long afterwards
what have I just said?

What have I just said -
the words fly from my mouth like
jays, soaring away.
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.

jaybirds soar away,
lost in clouds, they touch spring sky,
the sun grows new wings.

The sun grows new wings,
Feathers reflect their own light
This is what dawn means
It's too easy knowing nothing
And going off the rest

This is what dawn means,
To gaze at the sunrise,
Imaging the warmth upon your skin,
If I could have anything I could ever want... It would be having Spotify Premium ;-;

Imaging the warmth upon my skin,
My sanguine eyes brim
With light from the past.

(a haiku has 5 syllables in the first line, then 7, then 5 -> syllable counter) :)

with light from the past,
the future stumbles forward
ready for today.
