Rhyming November - 11



I ran upstairs
The mirror showed
A teenager awaiting me
I was no more a child
But now I find
My climbing style’s too slow and mirrors show
My future, not my mind.

Rhyming November - 10



Today I’ll hear the news, I’ll know
That you, inside of me, unknown, unknowing,
You might be
Someday, my son.
Today I’ll weep
Remembering the other unborn one
Who died before
So you could be.

Rhyming November - 9



The politics,
The rampant rough and tough of playground vows
Of “He said” “She said” and “He started it,”
The roundabout has teeter-tottered
Swung and slid
And slouched
To politics.

Rhyming November - 8



Susurrating sea-song sating silence with its longing
As the seasons turn to winter
As the swan-song slides from sight and still
Sweet memories of sunshine sleep
Till night.

Rhyming November - 7



When my brother was horrid
I’d simply refuse
To tell him a bed-time story.
Then I’d get the blues
From forehead to shoes
And whimper in silence “Poor me.”

Rhyming November - 6



Words like birds have twittered
Heard the thunder’s bitter fit
And in a snit
They’ve flittered south.
