Fuschia Blooms


Fuschia Blooms (Randyjw; May 10, 2019)


Fuschia brush my ears:

caresses near the soapdish

blushes cheeks and hair

Turquoise (Randyjw; May 10, 2019)


Sunlight pierces the branches of mangroves

the blue heron sailing a vast expanse for the other side

At the bank gleam shining pairs of faceted rainbows

partially submerging preying alligator eyes


Junebugs arrive early

and mayday beacons, like fireflies, bioluminesce in neon green

A striped mullet arcs and twists his agile body,

silvered underbody draped in pearlescent sheen


Sugar kisses coat the cypress swamp,

of which the water was filled and drained

And now sits the still glorious eagle

in its place where the plantation stands


The cypress canoes lay now silent

on the trails, filled with tears, which man tamed

A seminal tale for the Seminole,

at the time when the full moon waned.

Chamesh (Randyjw; May 9, 2019)


Chamesh is a five-fingered luck sign

of both Jewish and Arab design

To which I added further images

of symbolic peace doves of Israel, in mine



Two birds in the hand

and the world, as a pomegranate

solely… to wish each soul

A good year!

That’s all…

Love / Amor (Nine)


Love / Amor (Nine) (Randyjw; May 9, 2019)


Verses in reply

from seemingly simple lines

Layered depths to mine

No Contest


No Contest (Randyjw; May 9, 2019)


Of the bad I’ve done

No excused crimes of passion

emits from forked tongues


The judges human

don’t look at goodness in sums

but each act, as one


Opening statements,

intent, and motivation

Leave the jury hung


The courtroom drama

supporting evidence flung

considerations begun



the cross-examination

A gavel bangs down


So, put to the gun,

Not for, but because… of love,

I admit to none

Wingwoman (Randyjw; May 9, 2019)


Birds on a wire

at times don’t face each other

but love, together

Can’t Chew Gum


Can’t Chew Gum (Randyjw; May 9, 2019)


My heart skips its beats

Even while managing to

trip over my feet
