Yearning (NaPoWriMo)

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.

Blogging Bus (#100WW)

100 Word Wednesday: Week 118

I wonder some days about

This blogging bus…riders

Still dressed in “them” and “us”

Folks from vast globe, Universe.

Are we really welcoming

Community…or is there an

Undercurrent discordant, not

As inclusive as we boast

Frequently.  Do we Follow

Then ignore posts, lacking

Time and energy…or because

We disagree with philosophy

Ideology, spirituality, or use

Of language unappealing?

Comment box can be feast or

Famine; subtle curse, or blessing

Often mixed…confusing.  Do

We “Like” to just get by, or

Like sincerely?  

No judgment intended…just

Pondering, offering piece.

Here’s my bus stop…to 

All, Authentic Peace ♥ 🙂

Omit the Critics

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/23/your-daily-word-prompt-omit-april-23-2019/

Omit the critics’

Voices

From your music playlist

Listen

To truth, songs God sings

Over you, His love bright banner in banquet hall.

The Pi-Archimedes verse is:
○ a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines.
○ measured by the number of words in each line 3-1-4-1-5-9 to match the numerical sequence of the first six digits of Pi.
○ unrhymed.
Pi=3.14159…

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

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”.
