Scattered So Early

A body in full rebellion

Stomach cramps
nausea
vertigo

A mind in disarray

Swirling thoughts
Songs
Mania rising, falling

Winds in full swirl

Chime singing,
Newly budding maples
swaying

 

A clock that ticks mercilessly on

 

morning sky
indifference to suffering
or relief

Frank J. Tassone

I fell in love with writing ever since I wrote my first short story at the age of 12 and my first poem in high school. My free-verse has appeared in the literary e-zine Pif. My haibun has been published in Cattails, Haibun Today, Contemporary Haibun Online (CHO) and Contemporary Haibun, CHO’s annual print anthology. My haiku has been published by the Haiku Foundation. My senryu has been published in Failed Haiku. I regularly perform haibun and other haikai with Rockland Poets. I am honored to be a part of the Image Curve community as a contributing poet.
