6 Poems by Michelle V. Pozar

 

 

 

 

Firestorm

 

runs through dirt

toward water

jumps ditch

 

picking up speed

nothing can stop

the inevitable

 

 

 

Groundwork

 

rock in dirt

hollows out its niche

a place to dwell

 

 

 

Waterline

 

water etches through dirt

leaves a trail

down the pane

taking me with it

 

 

 

Shadow Under The Bridge

 

floating on water

underneath wooden slats

covering the hidden places

where dreams swim free

to be caught

or released

rocks and sticks snag

pull into roiling waters

disturbed from convention

open to chance

 

 

 

Straw Hat

 

fourteen silk flowers

 

attached

 

circled

 

braided

 

twisted

 

turned

 

no leftovers

 

except

 

the last straw

 

 

 

Jade Coat

 

put on your jade coat

emerald green silicone

green glass repellant

 

protection from the elements

you cannot survive without it

 

it fits so neatly now

each pleat in place

as you move

 

revealing

the shape of things

 

 

 

Pg11
