A Cleave Poem: Dancing Girls

And now bring on the dancing girls
the girls who long lift their skirts
to dance all night from dusk till dawn
in pale moonlight but then are torn
_sleepless crying from empty dreams
__darkness dying or so it seems

Two cleaved haikus: Mourning Morning

Lightning cleaves the sky, thunderbolts crash down,
__taking dawn’s virginity, beseaching our forgiveness,
mocking morning’s peace as the birds scatter.

Two cleaved Senryus: Gain – Loss

_______search the internet look out for a word
has anyone found a name that means more than desertion
_________for our new baby and a lost future
