OCTOBER’S REALITY CHECK

(autumn 2012: the post-fall fall)

1

topaz tree tops flash

warning winter’s white expense

some greens yearn for spring

2

flaming forward fast

amidst lemon, crimson, rust

topaz tree tops flash

3

jeweled mums abound

albino pumpkins astound

topaz tree tops last

4

autumn breezes blow

topaz tree tops flash then fall

while October goes

A HAIKU DUO FOR 2012

Hard Times Encore

~a Café Loup haiku~

what a see-saw world

these turbulent trying times

no exit in sight

Good Times Ahead

~a New Year’s wish~

peace & love maybe

but please first fair play for all

then we’ll rock ’n’ roll

—Mary Folliet

POETSPACE – Mary Folliet – GAMING LIFE

GAMING LIFE
“the black idea of winning”
–Bertolt Brecht

there is no contest
no opponent
no side to take
no stakes to risk
no prize to win
no victory to hope
only moments to kill
& longing to live
