Two Short Poems plus Haiku

War with Words

If words
went to war
proper nouns
would be in charge
and action verbs
on the front line.

Book Titles*

The yellow birds
keep quiet
waiting for
a place
at the table.

*All words except "waiting for" taken from book titles on Title Wave shelf.

Noticing ravens
pieces of charcoal broken
onto dirty snow.
