Creature of the Night (Triolet)

All along the fence she’s prowling,
Feline creature of the night.
Listen to her softly growling.
All along the fence she’s prowling,
The volume now increased to yowling,
Putting trespassers to flight.
All along the fence she’s prowling —
Feline. Creature of the night.

Bright Berries (Triolet)

Bright berries on Cotoneaster
speak of harvest time to come.
Others soon will follow after
bright berries on Cotoneaster,
in shortened days they redden faster,
ripened by late summer sun.
Bright berries on Cotoneaster
speak that harvest time has come.

Mistletoe

Mistletoe sprig

I’m underneath the mistletoe
waiting to be kissed.
While people come and people go
I’m underneath the mistletoe
with puckered lips and heart aglow
unnoticed. How can I be missed?
I’m underneath the mistletoe
waiting to be kissed!
