The Writing of Kerry E.B. Black



Longing for Sunshine


Longing for Sunhine

Written by Kerry E.B. Black


It patters like applause

pleased with itself

drowning out the buzz

of the everyday

with the every moment.


Sequestered in Seduction

Sequestered in Seduction

Written by Kerry E.B. Black


They dance in the moonlight,

Young but not in love

Encouraged in affection.


They kiss by the campfire

Unburdened by love

Sequestered in seduction.


They make love beneath stars

With youthful passion

Watched by many unseen eyes.


They mourn with the new moon

Alone and burdened

Their love a mere mockery.



Transmigrated Gossip

Transmigrated Gossip

Written by Kerry E.B. Black


A soul transmigrated

Lingers in the wood

Hovers in shadow

Whispers every shame.


The winds become gossips

Spreading every tale

Exposing disgrace

Outing every name.


April Fools

April Fools

written by Kerry E.B. Black


A harmless prank

to lighten the mood

when so much of life

is serious


can leave us all

refreshed and renewed

as springtime leaves us

A-Z Challenge

The idea? Well, write a blog post every day. Simple enough, right? It can be anything interesting to you. Last year, I wrote about literary devices. It was great fun. This year I’m going to write about some of my favorite television shows.

The catch? The blog title must begin with the corresponding letter of the alphabet. No problem (for the most part. There are a couple of tricky letters, but with thought, they can be successfully incorporated.)

So, who’s with me? Let’s all take the A-Z challenge for this month of April.



Oh, and lest we forget, April is also National Poetry Month, so I’ll be writing a poem a day to celebrate. How about you?


If you are participating, please let me know so that I can stop by and read what you have to say! Best wishes for success and blessings!


Dear no more your lies endured

Wishes ne’er into you poured.

for wishes trounced pull cynic bones

from romantic overtones.

Tis only when needed be

specter self indulgent see.

Dishonest abuser

disillusioned user

cutting incumbent hurting free.



Warm cinnamon, ginger fire

Add them to the funeral pyre;

Watch the flames lick higher and higher.

Death imperfections completely mire,

Marking that to which all aspire.
