Haiku, Cowgirl, & Micro Poetry





I.
Aphonia afflicted, I overcome –                                                              
Voice resonates finely
Articulated truth –
Silent, incendiary expression –
My written word.


II.
Smiling eyes conceal
Moiety of battle wounds.
Can you see the scars?


III.
Give yourself to me -
The good, bad, and the ugly –
Want the whole package.


IV.
Frenetic struggle
My canvas, blood soaked Pollock
Give way, Chagall dreams.



Cowgirl Poetry ~ Haiku

Artist: Lynda Lanker



















V.
Weathered and leathered –
Ranchers, cowgirls born with grit
Saddle up again.



VI.
Bruised and bones broken
Bloodied noses – bring it on –
Bull riders don’t quit.
