alliteration, Poetry

29.simpatico

casting a net
the water whirled
tiny round spinning swirls

hypnotizing heat
cool shade calm
life still listening

preparation prelude
dinner dancing delight
a two step tango

soft skin whispers
the smallest of hours magic
willow tree branches sway

juncture just ahead
leftovers singing blue
savoring our soliloquy

picking up strands
gleaming the outlawed
fine point favorite pen

tale telling
recollection riot writing
a  sigh surrenders the end

napowrimo day 29. inching toward day 30… though that was yesterday…

poet’s note: today is the 1st of May… a beautiful spring day… telling the tale written in words turning to see… the topics were ‘the process’ and ‘the meal’

28.bridgework

before there was you
sitting alone appeared perfect
the space of quiet
awakened before daybreak
stranded my barren bed mourns

dawn beckoning blues

cuddled close to warmth
heart unwraps with each heartbeat
in sync with each breath
time ticking eternity
kindling kosmic fire

napowrimo 28. running late as that white rabbit.
dVerse Tuesday build a bridge puente form
haiku my heart friday

poet’s note: kinda running behind on this year’s participation… the experience of learning new poetry forms is always intriguing and this year was no disappointment…. and it has been just as much fun as previous years meeting new people and renewing acquaintances…. keep writing…

27.starlight

lingering on the lanai in the late evening hours the sounds of the sea are ever present. as the moon rises and falls the hours pass in quietude recalling the morning’s dawn and daylight’s ending sunset. all too soon tomorrow lifts her sleepy eyes as nocturnal shadows begin to fade.

traveling sea breeze

roams the great oceans

26.imaginary.trouble

it’s a good cause
abstract and bearable
keeps the cursing far away
shifting from here to there
it matters not the dawn

hidden behind a wall
trap door deceit
living the lie
freedom fighter
every single day

feline female
purring and pretty
beyond blemish
smart and sensual
fictional figurine

without one worry
her glittered life of leisure
five living children
three nannies strong
she’s a shrouded sphinx

book reading excursion
far from land across the sea
another drop will do
this troublesome trouble
perceive her quixotic reflection

napowrimo day 26. MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt Define Insanity, Reasons for Admission

poet’s note: found this intriguing how a woman who was troublesome and did not follow the rules of engagement were treated as insane and locked up. if not locked up they sipped from a bottle that cured the vapors. how often have we found ourselves in a situation of our own making thinking it was a better world than it really was.
