Scarlett Letters

Posted in Poetry by Mandy Joy Poole on 27/01/2015

I’ve stopped thinking of you with fond appreciation
No expectations
You’re a dragon with no fire
Carrying on
I don’t have time for
Less than stone
A foundation
Sending my hope
Up with the birds
This quiet street
That empty seat
A minnow in a pond of loons
We hope for love but quit too soon
Burning my eternity of Scarlett letters
They drift into the night sky
plumes of goodbyes.

Crow Songs

Posted in Poetry by Mandy Joy Poole on 14/01/2015

The crows converse behind my house

beating their wings against the orange sky

a puff of breath

a trestle of twigs

they tell the truth

in humor, they sing.

My birthday. It’s tomorrow.

Here’s a few images from the past week.
