The first post mentioned the 5-7-5 was lax, I think this is ok unless it’s become strict

till winter slumber
year earned sales enslave us
your smile worth it

sorry - sometimes - these eyes, leave me

your smile worth it
more than any asking price
the number is five
to anticipate touching what is unseen seems far more interesting than seeing what the hand can not touch

The number is five,
I don't know why that matters:
It's my new guitar.

The crow is clever,
he finds his reflection and
keeps it for himself.

Keeps it for himself
a mist rolls over the pines
the lake's fringe frosted.

Ah I see, pay attention to first and last post, silly me :)

The lake's fringe frosted,
icy swan darts to hard ground,
a big wet breast slides

a big wet breast slides
in the gravy of Sunday.

If you want to fly, you must first spread your wings.

I just want to talk to you.
I'll take the long route.

Scent lingers on my backseat,
your shape imprints foam.

Low, and barely audible.
A song within songs.

A song within songs.
One track on every album
is a dud, skip it.

Another soggy firework.
Bonfire night washout.
