Where Sea And Shoreline Meet

Poem By Cicero Grey

Where sea and shoreline meet
On long and lanky feet
A lonely bird, a hungry bird
In search for som’ to eat.

The salty stinging sea
In sympathy, said she
“A bit to bite, a mini mite
Is all I have for thee.'

So generous was she
The salty stinging sea
She pulled her silky sapphire skirts
So gently to her knees.

The grainy gravelly ground
Revealed for miles around
Was filled with holes of big and small
Comestibles abound.

The sun set in the west
The shore was put at rest
The bird went back, her skirts went slack
As left, with thanks, the guest.

Where sea and shoreline meet
On long and muddy streets
A lonely trace of lanky feet
In search for som’ to eat.

99 Flavors

There was a girl whose favorite treat
Was ice cream, that she'd eat and eat
Her favorite shop was 99 Flavors
She'd gobble up whatever they gave her


When a hand reaches out to shake another
The crowd draws in, bodies press against each other
Clawing fingers, scratching fingers, push the hands apart
In fear of change and losing what they hold dear to their heart

City Haiku

Smoky city night
Piercing yowl shatters the dark.
Nonchalant to the
Bloodshot glares from dark windows,

New Moon

the crescent glows so gently bright
a timid newborn, blushing white

Birthday Rhyme

who's coming? giggle and groan, to ask is a task
what about the cake? I'm sure I can bake
