Paper, Time, and Clocks We Write Poems #96-Haibun party fun!

Ambitions frolic in the room, reason
coiled on magic marker trails, coloured pencils,
sharpeners — misplaced. He can’t find the page, or
pretends not to notice, engaging his time
Prismatic rainbows shine, caught in high-flying midstream.
Sun-dried voices echo off these walls. Time moves
backwards, falling sideways.

watching the fledgling
flutter, opening up
for flight, zeroed down

  1. ok a bit surreal…i like the progression…really love the line ‘time moves backward, falling sideways’

  2. There are a lot of things to do but the tools get misplaced. How often do we see this as an obstacle to smooth progress. Brilliant thinking, Pam!
