Waiting for Relief

Published September 8, 2014 by Libby

ocellus
everywhere, trills
of the monsoon
bouncing off branches and
rocks

chestnuts
barely ping
water swollen ground
fluty birds remain blended
hidden

peacock
swallows hard
blue shining body
small lungs laboring hard;
grunts

Above Water

Published July 11, 2014 by Libby

Sometimes it is possible that a poem written if one format works well in another and I have occasionally in the past written an Elfje version of a ‘Small Stone’ posted on my Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree blog, but usually I have had to change the odd word here or there. On 3rd of July I posted a Haiku on ‘By the Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree’ with the above title (you can read it here) and soon realised it was exactly eleven words, so here it is as an Elfje:

Head
above water,
bright eyes alert,
watching, seal curious as
me.
