    when desires, fail

    each yearning twists its ache, deep

    titillations, numb

    joys of expression

    sways in the throes of silence

    a Poet's passion

    ~ an EWK 5:7:5 Haiku Poe'em

    'A Stable Table'

    You sat there
    As I sit on my chair.
    A setting in place for two
    Served for us to dine, so debonair.

    The ambiance I find detracts
    From this canted sway I counteract.
    Jostling of such formalities
    Startling my senses as I react.

    This place is set
    Upon social etiquettes.
    An elbow upsets and dips
    Tilting the hems of your linen dress.

    Spilling of my wine
    Once more this time.
    It’s the little ways
    You are so inclined.

    I’m seeking some stability
    I must call the Maitre d’.
    You can’t keep me quiet, as I shout...
    “A stable table.” — “Please!”

    Guess what?

    This has all the essential energy to be a wonderful day.

    Dream with our eyes wide open now. Energy AWAKE!

    Just FEEL it.
    It is so familiar.
    It just comes along.

    And, you know if you don't hop all in and ride it...
    There it goes.
    It aches just to explore. Do more.

    How full is the moon?
    Solar flares, up there?
    Was it a good night's sleep?
    Or just your own restless, creative juices bubbling up, perking. perk. perk.
    Pour it out.
    Drink it in.
    And, BREATHE!

    Yes. This energy inside. Let it BE!

    This is so much of all these essential, potential chemistries contained in YOUR cup of... THIS DAY.
    Your cup of life. In your hands... TODAY. Overflowing the rim; stir it gently with a spoon of NOW; and a hope of TOMORROW,
    to sweeten its own desires.

    Wishing you a sweet day!

    create, share, appreciate

    Seeking Solutions

    Poetry is a notion.
    Written from emotion.

    Peace is a situation.
    War is a destruction.

    Love is a perception.
    Hate is a contamination.

    Passion is a sensation.
    Expression is an option.

    Perfection is an illusion.
    Imperfection is a realization.

    Life is an exploration.
    Death is a reflection.

    Hope is an anticipation.
    Despair is a reformation.

    Ignorance is a decision.
    Fear is a confusion.

    Thoughts often have no conclusion.
    Each Poet seeks a solution.

    Simmering in human infusions.
    Worded in intimate allusions.

    head raised
    to an attention
    peeking over edge
    of landing advancing
    heart-beating throbbing thump thump thump
    of an eminent climax
    fronted plowing tide
    rised and plunged
    rocks and plows
    closing toward
    as ramp
    down as
    a torrent
    rushed... ©ericwk (Photo from Pixabay)

    1st wave banners Fly
    advancing Troops wade ashore
    fresh Egg for breakfast
    strands of Strained encirclement
    entrenched and Tunneling in
