Possible failure, Day 11 of poetry month

NaPoWriMo, Day 11

1. Haiku Heights – Possible

A little duckling
Even in solitude
Still learns all his ways.

Still learning his ways
The tiger cub will not roar
When waiting for lunch.

When waiting for lunch
A baby will look at you
Ready to speak up.

Ready to speak up
We choose our own silences
Possible to fail.

California Dreaming, 2011


Poetic Asides said: Take a song title and write a poem around it. Or pretty much that, in slightly different words. Well, here it is:

CALIFORNIA DREAMING (The Mamas and the Papas, 1965)


Is it possible I dream of California?

Never seen it, never will.

And that’s, in fact,

what’s in a dream.
