For DVerse’s Quadrille Monday, our word is “Pepper.” I had planned on trying to write something but was having trouble. Then, just now, I finished writing this so decided to post it because why not. 🙂
I pepper my poetry with imagery,
Trying to add metaphor and simile,
Perhaps allusions to classical mythology --
But sometimes those words won't come.
I write with pillars of salt
More often than spice;
Sometimes the plainest words suffice
To say I miss the past.
Because it’s NaPoWriMo day 30 and I want to finish strong, here is a poem for today.
Will have their recompense:
Revealing greater belonging,
A better day
A little ninette I wrote, sharing for NaPoWriMo day 29 (I want to finish strong!).
Get rid of
What does not help,
What no longer serves:
Let it all go,
Bless it and
Foe NaPoWriMo day 19, I have a poem to share that, I think, is called a tetractys (it took me hours to remember that name). I look at the prompts almost every day, but for whatever reason, they usually don’t inspire me much, lately.
An unwise way,
You can only keep what you give away.
Very quickly fades:
Today flows to yesterday,
Unable to list all that is missed,
NaPoWriMo day 13.
There have been many prompts for NaPoWriMo, but none of them caught my fancy today. Even though it’s Thursday and not Tuesday, I have a new sijo to share.
Time moves impossibly, slowly yet quickly at the same time:
The space between our meetings drags, yet when we are together
It seems I blink, and your arms are no longer around me
This cherita is not for any prompts but is what I’m sharing for NaPoWriMo day 3. ❤ I almost don’t want to share this one yet really like it.
I want to write you so much poetry.
The words come, but they go quickly
As a river, swept away in love's ecstasy.
All that remains is to create poetry
Of our bodies, as my hands grasp for symbolism
In your skin, and my mute lips meet yours.
As much as I would have liked to share something brand-new with you, I didn’t write anything good today, so for Flashback Friday I have a poem from 3 years and 1 day ago. I called it “Imagine,” and it’s a bit of a stream-of-consciousness but I like it; I like bringing it into “the eternal now.”
The clocks walking
The clocks // destroyed
The eternal now
