Three prompts, three poems.  Enjoy, Amy

FOR SENSATIONAL HAIKU WEDNESDAY (prompt: Home)

Our Big Transatlantic Move

In tropics too long…
Gazing at Autumn’s palette
we know we are home.

FOR ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION (prompt: Silence)

Silence

Deeply drowsy,
almost asleep,
I am awakened by
silence.

My silence possesses
a certain charisma.
Mood music melts my mind
in the key of D-flat.

As one’s eye might
perceive a heavy haze
on a lazy afternoon,
so I hear my silence.

Whispers, wishes.
Haunting harmonics
pitched aloft like angels, but
with a hint of humanity.

FOR POETS UNITED (prompt: Third letter of your first name. And no, my first name is not “Sharp”!)

Y Not?

Yawningly waking.
Yearning aching to make love.
Yanking off your T-shirt,
purring, giggling, yowling…

Yelling, “Yes! yes! yes!”
After all these years,
you and I are youngas our first “yowza”!
