5-7-5 Contemplation

The eraser rubs,
and dark lines fade to nothing;
memory vanished.

***

Sound proof box holds tight;
Scream and shout but yet nothing.
Words fall to the ground.

***

Pieces on the board,
moved about quickly; costly.
A pawn moved aside.

***

Broom sweeps up the mess,
pieces and particles move;
nothing remains now.

***

The cord is pulled taut;
the bag is carried away.
No one knows to where.

***

recalibration.
compartmentalization.
depreciation.

***

Total attention.
One in a million: special.
Millions of one: common.

***

A mighty wave engulfs,
ensues, pursues, overtakes;
ebbing: abandons.

***

Terracotta pot
in hands sure and steady: safe;
in foolish: mere dust.

***

Tremors come first and
then the ground opens up and swallows.
Why did feet stand still?

***

Rocks misused and thrown–
smallest to biggest: brutal.
The collection grows.
