Waiting For The Face Plant: Romantic Blogging Free Verse Poem

May 6, 2015

You know that moment
when you trip
and begin to fall
and know you’re going
to crash and burn,
but haven’t hit yet?

The moment between
“Oh, crap!”
and “OUCH!”?

Asking someone out
on a date
via email
or instant message
or text,
and then hearing
only silence
is like that:

The moment
just before
the face plant.

Several Haiku On A Nautical Theme: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku(s)

February 27, 2013

As I wrote one haiku, several others followed, with deeper realization behind each.

What’s The Point?: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku Lament, 5:20 a.m.
If you wait for calm/
seas before you sail, you’ll n’er/
go anywhere fun.
If you wait for calm/
seas before you sail, you will/
always stay on shore.

If you wait for calm/
seas before you sail, you’ll stay/
moored, bored or becalmed.
Waiting for calm seas/
before you sail? Why even/
risk the adventure?

Why Wait To Sail? Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku 5:27 a.m.
If you leave harbor/
with no rudder or mast, your/
trip will be cut short.
If you leave harbor/
with no rudder and no mast,/
disaster awaits!

I Need A Crew: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku 5:46 a.m.
Life’s sail is better/
when you have a first mate and/
not just passengers.

There Is This Woman: Romantic IMprov Poetry

March 10, 2011

There is this woman
who has, from day one, intrigued me,
but who said from day two
there was no “we” that could ever be.

Does she now, at last,
let tender, caring words slip?
Let feelings escape her grasp,
just as I prepare for a trip?

The words and thoughts
I’d always waited in vain for,
now are finally brought
as I head out the door.

Yet though these words come at last as a surprise,
I take comfort knowing: Such a feeling never dies.
