SPANGLED SKY
(a shadorma)

Midnight blues
brightened by red hues
when white stars
ignited
flash and dance in remembrance
of independence.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY
(a shadorma)

Old man Claus
takes time to pause and
celebrate.
Six months late.
To the beach he goes, cooler
in hand, sandy toes.

FALLEN FROM FAVOR
(a shadorma)

I was once
a pillar of strength.
Slowly, with
each passing
blow, my foundation weakened,
reduced to rubble.

DRY DOCKED
(a shadorma)

Weathered and
worn, yet she upholds
the soles of
all who tread
upon her boards to dangle
toes and lines seaside.
