Prompted Limerick

I have never seen anything like it,
it will challenge all poets to spike it.
The rhyming is rough
and humor is tough.
In the end we will write and then strike it.

After the Storm

Tree falls,
power lines down
pasture fence crushed
The deer ate my roses..

Fires out,
smoke lingers,
ash and soot cling.
Now the cleanup.

i have left my home,
camping, out of fire zone.
Sleepless i sit and write
a homeless soliloquy.

Trick or Treat

Under Halloween's moon,
Bandersnatch come soon.
They're brutes who'll steal your loot,
so carry a big harpoon.

Allergic

Demon cats, he was known to eschew,
when they came near his eyes teared
and his dripping nose spewed, Ah Chew!

Parliament's febrile sessions
to set conditions
to exit the European Union
will soon end.

Dead Silence

Silent and deadly
the Water Moccasin's
wedge-shaped head
raised in mock
surprise to survey
for prey.

Shosagoto*

Dancing girl at the temple, with grace and control
in resonance with pitched chant, three-stringed shamisen*
accompanies the lyrics, tunes of the ancients
played out on Kabuki stage, hyoshigi* crack.
