Napalm’s Swans

I’m moved and delighted that, once more, my poem fit the NaPoWriMo prompt: “…for our daily prompt…I’d like to challenge you today to write a poem about an animal.”

Today’s prompt: daffodil, swan, napalm

Do daffodils bloom

Where hell’s horror napalm burned

Children, souls now swans

Sterling Skeleton Key

What do you See? March 5, 2019


Fair fantasy, copper’d swirl of locks

Bronze satin dress fastened with

Ivory floral mysteries…her loveliness

Lures, but looks a warning:  are you

Certain you really want what I hold?

Have you fearlessness to accept this

Bright sterling skeleton key?

You don’t know what it opens…

If door, just where it leads.

Could be Life’s singular bonheur…or

Agony’s hell-trap, relentless Despair.
