What if

What if I wrote a poem that 
Only rhymed visually
A poem that would be a pain
To read out loud. Slowly now...
Cow, sow
Food, good
Slower, flower
Couch, touch
Colonial, colonel
Beard, heard
Leaf, deaf
Ear, bear
Finder, hinder
Foot, root
Lord, word
It'd be best poem I've even seen
And the worst
I ever heard.

Pet rock

If I had a pet rock ...
I could ignore it,
and pretend it was invisible.
I could give it the silent treatment,
even if it wanted to talk.
Think of all the things I couldn't do
if I didn't have that pet rock!

Night falls

Night falls, morning breaks
Water falls, waves break 
Tears fall, when bones break
My coffee mug falls,
Gimme a break

Sunflowers

Sunflowers face the sun
In the daytime and at noon
So at night are they moonflowers?
At night they face the moon


Dust

Just as fairy dust 
is a little sprinkle of miracles,
the dust on my desk 
is a little sprinkle of dirt, mould 
and dead skin particles.

The sky

Sometimes the sky is huge,
all sorts of colors, hues,
dramatic, it moves.

sometimes the sky is itty bitty
a tiny sliver in the city

sometimes the sky is so dark
there's nothing to see
and that's the coolest kind of sky
i wish you could see
