Yearning (NaPoWriMo)

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-twenty-six-5/

Prompt: write a poem that uses repetition…repeat a word, or phrase…even repeat an image, perhaps slightly changing or enlarging it from stanza to stanza, to alter its meaning.

Yearning for time to open pages

Disappear inside bound papered

Walls, fort of words, escape…book.

Longing for printed lines that renew

Refresh mood, mental getaway.

Yearning burns for story which

Embraces me, a boon companion…

For ink-profiled characters more

Authentic, 3-dimensional, than

Most real people invested in.

Urgency in longing, yearning…

Time lifts broad tapestried wings

Of blinding hue.  Luxury journey

Literary—hands turning dim pages

Shakily—soon will pass from view.

Ugly Mirror

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/04/21/ugly/

Dare not greet mirror

Face to face, confront ‘ugly’

Could ruin fine mood…

Shiny glass reflects Liar’s

View, not who loving God made

Full Moon Dance

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/04/19/moon/

I realize haiku/tanka isn’t supposed to rhyme, but…it’s what fell out, so I had to accept it 🙂

Full Moon, you vex me

Run me ragged, unraveled

Woo me, swoon-worthy

Every month we do same dance

Lovers’ quarrel, then romance

Heart Like a Boulder (NaPoWriMo)

Heart like a boulder

Not hard-edged, stony, but huge

Heavy with love’s thoughts

Yellow creases ’round your eyes

Sunshine; gold delight, your kiss

Man without equal

Love which couldn’t be copied

Spring, reminiscent

April’s flowered innocence

And I, still longing for you

Chorus On Laundry Night

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/17/your-daily-word-prompt-examine-april-17-2019/

I tend to do my laundry at odd hours, as tenants must share a single washer and dryer.  So, typically I haul my basket downstairs and across the parking lot at around midnight, or dawn. Tonight I was struck by the frogs’ loud bellowing chorus…they kept me entertained as I went back and forth, enjoying a less than favorite task 🙂

Late-night dark, frogs long and loudly

Announce in lingering amphibian chorus

To all wee-hour creatures assembled

That I, peculiar inhabitant of ‘hood

Can’t manage to modify busy days…not

Sensible about sleep, nutrition needs

Which wisdom would dictate examining.

I barely discern froggy voice declare:

“Too mindful of prompts, challenges…

Alas, poet/blogger’s losing her mind”.

Ferry Me, Love (NaPoWriMo)

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-eighteen-5/

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/04/16/ferry/

I’m skating in at nearly the eleventh hour to hopefully fulfill NaPoWriMo’s optional prompt, which speaks to grief, loss, love… Ennle


Ferry me, in your arms, Love

Cradled across Time, opal-starred

Ocean…where you are forever.

Take me back to childhood’s

Naïve belief that dreams were

More real than imagined possibles

Flights of whimsy fanciful…not

Slated to only come true for

Someone smarter, an exotic

Gilt-edged rose; or one not broken

Too soon to untwist brain’s bent

Wires and limbs of heart, their pale

Weak marrow diseased.

Ferry me, in your arms, to a place

Where you’d love me without

Question, second thought as to folly

Or wisdom, others’ opinions…

Because you knew your own mind

Captained your ship to success, against

Critic’s sharp (petty, envious) waves…

Because the 30 years’ span, differences

Between your bright-lights world, mine

Would disappear, mere movie mist…

The sky is prickled with gemstone’s fire

Ferry me, my Love…

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/04/15/world/

The world waits, breath held

Hope’s burning candle

Hearts of various creed, faith

Pray for global miracles
