Wednesday

Zip dive and the final drive


Zooming from A to Z

The challenge is sealed with a kiss,
Each writer’s mind now an abyss.
No letters remain
The brain so to drain.
Today, A to Z we dismiss.

Yikes and yow and nearly ciao



You reek-a

“You reek-a,” she said with a groan.
“But that’s nothing new. Hold the phone.
Please put on your shoes.
I won’t blow a fuse.
But stop with the noxious cyclone.

“I’m not sure how long I can cope
With terrors of this broad a scope.
You want me to stay?
Then stop the decay.
Why don’t you invest in some soap?”

Monday

Extortion in small portions



Without eXcuse

A publisher’s due for exam.
It’s time to shed light on his scam.
You ask, “Does he dare?”
He’s full of hot air.
Look out, or he’ll go on the lam.

The trouble began with a pop.
But soon, fellow writers talked shop.
His ship sprang a leak,
Inciting our pique,
And caused the best wordsmiths to stop.

We’re guessing his fortune’s reversed.
Perhaps he cannot be coerced.
But writers disdain
And experts retain,
Expecting to be reimbursed.

Sunday

Wrestling with Wonder




Wincing or convincing?

We wrestle wildly, watching winds.
We fluff our feathers, flap our fins,
And number woes –
God only knows
We fail to find when joy begins.

When wonder waits with every stride,
Why do we dare to be denied?
What vision vies
To catch our eyes,
While we whirl on, fit to be tied?

"And He said, 
'Let me go, for the day breaketh.'
and [Jacob] said, 
'I will not let Thee go, except Thou bless me.
(Genesis 32:26, KJV)

Friday

Vanishing ventures




Vertigo’s victim

He’s veering, vexed, into the void –
A journey not to be enjoyed.
The world revolves,
And nerve dissolves,
As vertigo leaves him annoyed.

Thus violated, does he stand,
A-trembling in either hand.
He knows the cause,
But still takes pause,
Preventing tumbles never planned.
