First Love, Lydia Sudall

A series of Haiku to my first love
by Lydia Sudall Hormonally born but still a social secret: Simple clarity. Stability in transition, stability when I didn't know... Shrouded memories, committing to together, while young love fell around us. From highschool outward, Different worlds, states and friendships. Forging ourselves apart. A teenage drama, Exploration and distance. Time whispered good bye. I, an erratic liberated bird in your. Stoic existence. Crazy first heartbreak echoes of a birthday lie. His eyes were elsewhere. I could have learned more. A young view of forever, daydreams in Summer. There was no good way; A sterile internet sentence. Farewell forever. The only one I Would never hear from again. Married now I say Goodbye Dong Hoon Kang. Doors of friendship never close Peace in, peace out.

100 Words, Linda Cerynik

100 Words

If I only had 100 words
To tell you how much I ...

They said don’t miss the train.
Frozen on the platform
Hands on head
Tailwind blasts my face.

They said don’t miss the plane.
Paralyzed on the tarmac
Sharp, pointed angle, 
Ascent,
And away to the clouds. 

If I only had 100 words 
To tell you how very much I ...

You sit across the worn oak 
Coffee steam swirling between
Us 
Wall clock ticks 
On tabletop I take your hand
Um
If I only had 100 words
I’d probably spill 97 
Trying to say
I love you.

Gathering, Deep Blue River Poetry

The Gathering // 2018 DBR 

In heaven they're having a meeting 
To discuss what the hell's going on 
And they've sent the 144k 
To help us finish this song 
somewhere there's a gathering of angels 
On a tarmac 
Headed to flight 
In a plane
In a train 
On a bus 
Bound for Vegas 
Tonight
