Big Tent Poetry, Poetry

serene seclusion

big tent poetry: possessions. this week’s prompt is to think of something you possess. what are your feelings about this possession? do you possess it, or does it possess you? i was unable **unwilling** to focus on anything specific **anything to do w/my personal possessions** but i did find this one… confirming possessions are fleeting ; photo: purple finch by drphotomoto, flickr

Purple Finch

surrounded in a small way
she felt perfectly content
her favorite color of pink
entwined in the tiny twirls
of happiness haunting her house

purple dangling beads
dancing with delight
shimmering songs singing
her doorway the dazzle
of dawn’s expression
mad and marvelous
everyone stayed away

swift and slow she so suddenly left
her presence slumbers in nirvana
perceptible pink puddles smiling back
clearly anticipating more

  1. Such pretty colours, of the finch and in your poem, I love the pink puddles smiling back. A light, happy poem, and finches do sing so beautifully, don’t they?

  2. I love the alliteration throughout but especially “entwined in the tiny twirls/of happiness haunting her house”. To be satisfied with such simplicity!

writing is everything...
