Happy Halloween, Please Join Our Poetry Picnic Week 39 and Humor Week 14 Today....All Mixed Event!

I'm red ink in a gel pen,
In a writer's hand I'm never chicken;
I'm juicy sugar in the cane,
Never confused with green-eyed monster!
I'm blue moon in Heaven,
My glow is gentle and faint,
I'm peanuts not yet toasted,
I'm corn flakes that aren't frosted.
I'm a tree not pruned,
I'm a poem yet to be fine tuned,
I'm a window without a blind,
I can always detect what's come behind.

Portraiture By Anita Scott Coleman (Mini Fiction Week 30)


Black men are the tall trees that remain
standing in a forest after a fire,
Flames strip their branches,
Flames sear their limbs,
Flames scorch their trunks,
Yet, stand these trees,
For their roots are thrust deep
In the heart of the earth.
Black men are the tall trees that remain
standing in a forest after a fire.

Haiku on Daisy

I'm a cat Daisy
who would drive my owner nuts,
ain't I crazy?
Daisy is my love,
She looks elegant and young,
Together we're dawn.
Blooming in spring time,
Yellow, white, red, and navy
blue, sweet daisy hue.

Whose Math doesn't Add Up? Haiku to Enjoy for Poets Rally Week 75!

 Jenny Matlock : Alphabe-Thursday Letter V   Victory

whose math doesn't add up?
Materials significance,
Quick reaction works.
Live, CNN, town hall show,
New York City, 2nd round,
Peach red bitter acts.
Private weapons grow,
Government may not know, so
freedom contradicts.

No fine line when it
comes to politics, so
no claiming victory.
