big tent poetry: this week’s prompt wordles

love the shift of time travel
as if i found a genie in a bottle
tossed a long time ago and
lands at my feet

the taste of 3 sweet wishes
trying not to peer at his psychedelic poofy pants
i click my feet humming a long forgotten
childhood rhyme

debris field dreams float by like magic
passing the half-eaten whims of another
effortlessly skirting the evidence
swarming stars collide

landing gear descends
the docking station creeps close
my temporary parts give way
exposing the backbone
of a long adventure

captain peecard and number 1
my heart embellishes the rub of his head
who would pass a touch of his lips
blue eyes blazing i forgot to close the door
whoosh the sound screams
of automated time

  1. Love what you did with the wordle. Also like Picard a lot, lol. So many vivid lines that I’m not going to even try to choose one. They are all delicious,

  2. Oh, very nice! I especially loved your use of the words in this stanza:
    debris field dreams float by like magic
    passing the half-eaten whims of another
    effortlessly skirting the evidence
    swarming stars collide

    Wow – great!

  3. The problem with the genii wishes is that if you’re specific enough to avoid mis-adventure, you edit out the fortunate chance. Never notice Picard’s eye color, but I am now old enough to view him as a sexual object

  4. haha rall, aint it cool… have you not never seen a genie with crazy pants…. ohhh yr missin out… come one now… i know you have along your adventures….
