False Security

Standard

make shift shelter
of cloth and thread
big enough to wrap around
soft enough to comfort
protection from the cold
a barrier from the hard
cradle for all transport
a bit of safety brought
among the unknown
letting go of its hold
only builds the soul

-Jennie Nawrocki

Storm

Standard

dat, dop, dap
the umbrella sings
plop, plip, plap
the puddles speak
swoosh. splash, swish
water screams through wheels
wrow, weer, whow
stream flowing gutter stories
eep, beep, seep
birds bellow its silence

-Jennie Nawrocki

Luck

Standard

drowns the good
tears apart
beats a person down
definitely not in your favor
feelings of lost
hammers drive pain
everything gone

drowns the bad
mends bridges
builds you up
unsolicited goodness occurs
spreading true love
happiness repeats
having everything in need

-Jennie Nawrocki

Free

Standard

extremist we were
set in our ways
possibilities of changing
an idea, thoughts unexpressed
emboldened sparks within
shattering barriers
of colors so rigid
meeting in the middle
together building
acceptance towards actions
free of deception
along with malformed humor
plain goodness created
from us listening and learning

-Jennie Nawrocki

Welcome

Standard

a city so calm
relaxed is the atmosphere
where you are from, doesn’t matter
where you are going, need not worry
stay and rest
talk if you want or don’t
we don’t mind
hunger or thirsty, we’ll quench that
there is plenty to eat, so rest your feet
accept my hospitality, this is our home

-Jennie Nawrocki
