focused praying mantis still as a stick
clueless prey three times its size
best friend of gardeners
10/13/2019 - Poetry form: Kimo - An Israeli form of haiku that has three lines with a 10-7-6 syllable format and which does not rhyme. Also, the Kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it's uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems. - Copyright © Mark Toney | Year Posted 2019

A letter – an answer is awaited.
Her pen is still; the page, blank.
She knows not how to start.

...and you came to answer the door like you
did with my prayers; your replies
sought the questions of mine.

Falling into the hyacinth sky as
your mouth is filled with my name:
I am eternal.

Breaking the habit by breaking the heart
inch by inch, gaze by gaze: it's
a dark matter of time.

Your steps are taking
away from here just like the
arteries carry

the blood away from
the heart and now on you are
going to be not

miles but lives away
from me; dimensions ahead
hidden in your cloud fortress.

Insomnia and I, old friends are we –
awake by each other’s side,
fidgeting, through the night.


Insomnia and I, old foes are we –
ever struggling to conquer,
to defeat the other.
