When She Seeks A Knight In Shining Armor: Romantic IMprov Haiku

January 25, 2016

She seeks a knight in shining armorShe seeks a veiled prince,/

She seeks a veiled prince,/

Vulnerable Open: Romantic ImproVerse Free Verse Poem

December 1, 2014

She stood,
arms outstretched,
lungs deep breathing,
gasping for air,
to pull back into her
the truths revealed,
that he’d somehow
yanked from her,
opening her up
and examining every
without her tacit permission. /

And yet she welcomed it,
yearned for the understanding that/
incredible insight gave,
begged to know/
even as she was known,
and understood,
and covered,
and buttoned up,
like a trenchcoat
she’d once wore,
and only she knew
what was underneath,
or wasn’t.

And she wondered/
and how/
and if/
she’d ever let/
someone /
unbutton it/
and her.

And she knew/
that some day,/
some time,/
the London Fog/
would lift, /
and sun /
would shine/
deep in
the center field/
of her heart,
and she’d again/
get to run home.

Hidden Diamonds: Romantic IMprov Haiku

Yeah, It’s About You … Again: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

March 10, 2011

Yes, I sent you
a hidden haiku
late last night.
I hope it was alright.

You don’t have to wonder,
as I drifted off to slumber,
what it was about, or who.
The subject and object? Yeah, it’s you.

Not that you’re objectified
when I gaze at the inside
of my eyelids.
I felt inspired to write, so I did.

Why do I never send these to you directly?
Keeping them hidden leads to romantic subtlety.
