NoMaWriMo #6

"Draw me like
one of your French girls."
Bottles of merlot.


Poet's Note

This poem has a tongue in cheek reference to one of the famous scenes in the movie "Titanic"

NaNoWriMo #5

“Well?" Ron said finally,
looking up at Harry. "How was it?"
Harry considered it for a moment.
"Wet," he said truthfully.

Ron made a noise that
might have indicated jubilation or disgust,
it was hard to tell.
"Because she was crying,"
 Harry continued heavily.

"Oh," said Ron,
his smile faded slightly.
"Are you that bad at kissing?"

"Dunno," said Harry,
who hadn't considered this, and
immediately felt rather worried.
"Maybe I am.”

NaNoWriMo #4

Plain white office walls

leave much to be desired.
My eyes paint pictures.

Poet's Note

This poem was published in Vol.17 of 
Haiku Journal 

NaNoWriMo #3

It's 3am,
he is sitting there alone
with an empty coffee cup.

(The song "In McDonalds" by Burial served to be the inspiration for the poem.)

NaNoWriMo #2

Yellow journalism received a fresh coat of paint

Poet's Note
My fascination about the media's impact on society took root during my AP History class in high school when we learned about yellow journalism, which was rampant in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Upon receiving my political science degree at the University of Dayton, this fascination with media studies turned into an academic pursuit, particularly the societal impact of media effects.

This was my first attempt at a one line haiku!

NaNoWriMo #1

Crumbled newspapers
roll down Main Street-

(This poem was inspired by the prompt 'News' over at Haiku Nook on Google+)

I can't write novels or stories at all; however, in conjunction with National Novel Writing Month, I'll be posting (or at least try to) post at least one poem a day.

Hope all goes well!

The Wall [Prompt - Missing]


brick brick brick brick
brick brick          brick
brick brick brick brick


This was in response to today's prompt over at the Google+ group Haiku Nook.

This was inspired by Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall"
