The Poet’s Corner – “Abbreviations”

By guest author: Eric Malooley



Clear-skied full moon calls

through open bedroom window-

tells me to leave my restless

dreams and join her in misty fields.


Heavy night snowfall.

This morning boys with shovels

over shoulders. Muffled laughter

moving down the street.


Icicles hanging

from an old watershed.

Sounds come from inside.


Dark. Buzzing, whirring

crackling. June bug crashes

into my window.


Two otters on a culvert

slipping in and out of my

back yard pond.


Birds spilling from tree

soaked up by ground. As I pass

they evaporate.


Dandelion fertile

blown out into blue-black sky.

A starry night.


March wind blowing hair

into brief sculptures. Sun

slips behind a cloud.
