Perfect Poet Award Week 46


Thank you Jingle and Company and all those who nominated me for this award!

As part of my acceptance, I nominate Liveonimpulse for next week’s award and offer a lighthearted haiku:

Feisty kitten leaps

attacking dog who turns and

growls her discontentment.

White trash

White trash sitting on the patio, flicking cigarettes into tall grass.
Junk strewn about the yard
A camper rests on cinder blocks, sending roots into the ground
slowly rotting into the littered landscape.

White trash collecting cans, every penny helps.
Old man throws back a beer as kids scour the roadside for aluminum.
Old man looking like a fool, trying to be cool
with a cowboy hat wrapped in snakeskin, skin dirty, clothes dirty.

White trash dumpster diving looking for a score.
Amazing what folks will throw away. Just wipe it off and eat it.
Dinners made from government cheese and church hand outs.
Those rich folks don’t know what they’re missing.

White trash I was born to but never was.
Reaching for the stars, brushing off the dirt, the grime.
Staying one step ahead of myself.
Spent a lifetime trashing that.

Mealtime

A feather blocks light.
The worm writhes in agony.
A bird chirps content.

Poet of 2010 Award


Check it out. I received the Poet of the Year Award for 2010. Congratulations to the other winners and runners-up. Thanks to all of you who voted for me. I feel really privileged. The recognition is nice. A special thanks as well to Jingle, who devotes hours of her time coordinating the Poets Rally and tallying votes. Jingle, you do a great job.

My prize: a gorgeous virtual car!


Perfect Poet Award for Week 34


Thanks Jingle for the award! In celebration, I offer a poem:

A Love Poem

Your softness sends shivers up my spine.

You promise me fulfillment

and sweet memories for days to come.

I anticipate you with every waking breath.

I ache with undying desire.

You are my love

and my dream,

oh coconut cream

pie.

Haha! What did you think I was talking about love between a man and a woman? Nah, I’m not that kind of poet. 🙂

For Week 35, I nominate Fyodor Lewis

Rally on!
