Fractal Myth

Cinquains

Enemy Within.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Acid
stomach burning
gut churning nausea
gnawing my flesh from inside out.
Just stress.


Benedictine.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Golden
sheen through crystal
glimpse of world upside down
savoured from first to last driplet,
glowing.


Winter Scene.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Snowflake
on my eyelash,
you and I are unique
chaotic fractal creations:
Earth's art.


Rain.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Raindrops
spilling from clouds,
pearls of precious water
seeping slowly into the earth.
Welcome.


Echidna.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Spiny
quilled anteater
invading sand castles,
a hungry, monotreme foe.
Feast, friend.


Rubber-necking.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Car-crash,
screech, smash, head-bash,
metal gashing, whip-lash,
see everybody turn to see
carnage.


Promise.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Springtime ~
felt in sun's kiss,
smelt in sweet violets,
when wintercold nightwinds blow you
are gone.


Currant Contemplation.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Today,
in my garden,
planting bare-rooted canes.
Next year ~ harvesting ~ luscious ripe
berries.


Wedgetail Eagle.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Eagle,
sky suspended
amulet on azure
inscribe wide pendulous circles
then drop.


The Merry Month.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Petals,
pale plum blossom,
scented snowflakes swirling,
whirling wildly in windy waves.
Spring fall.


Family Planning.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Bird's nest.
Frail feathered breast
in woven contours pressed.
Dart back and forth, no time to rest.
Hope chest.


Storm.

[Michelle Chapman ©2001]
Fractured
by bright lightning,
dark night comes flooding back;
counting silent seconds before
thunder.
