Random Somethings

Poem By Kateh Shirk

Someone mentions a word,
which slows my mental blur
and causes my mind to stir.

The random something
starts the gears turning
and an idea starts forming.

But the motion halts
and the image fades and falters.
The process is adjusted and altered.

It comes back to me
and now I see
what the thought used to be.

I want to carry out the deed
and there's some object I need.
Alas, the subject feed

is cut off.
So now it becomes lost,
a longer remaining thought.

Soul Search

I walk through this world with many faces.
But they show only a small trace
Of the beautiful girl inside.
There's bits and pieces I hide.

A Collection Of Haikus

Frost covers the window
while snow buries the gray truck.
This is scraped off.

Caught Dead Center

Mom's on the phone
talking with this serious, demanding tone
about Dad, child support and how little he does.
It is much to my woes


The tension is strong...
The worries seem to carry on...
Anger is rising within you,
and depression is turning you blue...

Lonely Little Girl

There was a little fourth grade girl
Roaming aimlessly, alone, looking for a friend
when she had none, looking around...
She moved from the swings to the basket ball court to the jungle gym to the eagle's nest on the playground.
