Circle Game

Hunting for fresh knowledge

Sorting fact from fiction

Solve the contradiction

Back to square one

Bum’s Rush

The wrinkle in the tout’s

Pitch for merchandise cheap

Lull customers to sleep

No excitement

Packs his traveling case

Off to find a new crowd

No street selling allowed

Oh, drat the luck

Haiku 10/12/21

Soft tangerine tint

The sky of the ebbing day

Fades into night’s gloom

shh babies sleeping

Mama and Papa bear

Enjoy the quietude

Of their sweet, blended brood

When they’re asleep

Heed the soul’s call within

To seek your harbor safe

In your choices, have faith

Then you’ll be home
