He Doodles, You ‘Ku – 8

The concept is simple: HM doodles; you write a poem to accompany it. Links to all the doodles throughout the month and the opening post can be found here.

Doodle is by HM Yuan; please do not post the doodles on other blogs.

  1. grandfather
    each time I glance
    at my watch

  2. the sinking sun
    lingers at the brim
    of your cup
    how long can I stop you
    from leaving


    no time left
    to say goodbye…
    withered rose

  3. oh time thief

    must you run incessantly?

    stay – a moment

    Wonderful idea Aubrie, thanks yuan for the great doodles 🙂

    eyes closed
    heads tilt opposite directions
    lips touch
    passage of time blurrs
    between a second and eternity

  5. Linda H. says:

    cds and books
    lined up alphabetically
    on shelves
    too much time on her hands
    after the Dear John letter

  6. Linda H. says:

    time crunch
    leaving behind her hotel number
    instead of glass slipper

  7. Linda H. says:

    sorry for the multiple post. Time is a great theme.

  8. Billy says:

    I stand in all

    I remove my watch
    when leaving work,
    roam with the deer
    in the crepuscular
    hour of beginnings.

    Musty, hot attic
    Found under the patchwork quilt
    Still ticking away.

  10. bigmax722 says:

    the rhythm
    of yesterday’s rain –
    long night

  11. Rita Odeh says:

    first kiss-
    the clock hands

  12. robertabeary says:

    your sure touch
    makes the hands
    fall off my clock
    still my love for you
    keeps on ticking

    • Rita Odeh says:

      The second image is marvellous. However, Iam a little bit confused regarding the first image.
      The touch which makes the clock hands fall must be a violent one.
      Does this tanka say that although you are violent, I love you?!
      To avoid this confusion I suggest:

      handless clock-
      my love for you
      keeps on ticking

      • robertabeary says:

        hi rita! third line had a typo corrected…actually the first version which i didn’t post had a more explicit reference as to what part of my body ‘clock’ is. but you get it, right?

    meditation. . .

    (In case it doesn’t show, each line is indented more than the one preceding it, like descending stairs)

  14. terrilfrench says:

    in blue ink
    a smudged reminder
    on the back of my hand

  15. Cara Holman says:

    wind whispering
    through the pines
    how seamlessly
    one day flows
    into the next

  16. […] the He Doodles, You ‘Ku challenge, on Aubrie Cox’s Yay Words […]

  17. Billy says:

    My mother
    had a tiny watch
    on a ring
    she wore for its novelty
    even after it stopped.

  18. Dennise Aiello says:

    a clock without hands cell phone

    Sent from my iPhone

  19. GILLENA COX says:

    trees tendering history
    to wind sweeps

  20. time traveler
    again he arrives at the doorstep
    of my dreams
    clutching wildflowers
    in his strong, young hands

  21. seconds spilling
    out of my palm
    in threads

  22. angie werren says:

    big cold moon —
    how many days
    until tomorrow?

  23. Maria Santomauro says:

    how many beats
    in a minute

  24. pocket watch where the hands go

  25. Kathy says:

    Whaaaat…..This post exploded!! @_@ That’s a good thing though. 🙂 Yay, more people participating!

    the wet whisper
    of stars tonight . . .
    the standstill of my heart
    as your prognosis offsets
    the balance of time

  26. sanjuktaa says:

    day after
    day after day-
    eating alone
    at the table
    meant for twelve

  27. sanjuktaa says:

    old moon carrying you in my pocket this long day

  28. Peter Newton says:

    a thought takes hold
    the long night
    of forgetting

    making love-
    I stop the watch

  31. A Walk In My Heart says:

    to the moon and back …
    pick up the kids
    cook dinner
