dVerse, halibun monday, napowrimo 2021, Poetry

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
ethereal excursion
roams the great oceans

24.stunned

car cutting highway late and last
off to belfast
turn left not right
it’s quite a hike

single line silence drifts away
there’s dues to pay
no guns no soap
it’s a tightrope

dusk divine across the blue sky
can’t help but sigh
gab with the ghosts
at the lamppost

MLMM Saturday Mix Lucky Dip Minute Poetry

anapestic, dVerse, napowrimo 2021, Poetry, tetrameter

22.stitching

meandering dreamer
a loome for the weaver
she smokes the green reefer
with her espresso and creamer

lives near Pasadena
just past the ol’ dry cleaner
dressed with a demeanor
but never with the cheater

corner selling healer
beware the believer
jesus christ the seeker
revival for the reaper

waiting makes her meaner
if you want to please her
bring only kosher wieners
call it misdemeanor

napowrimo day 22. dVerse anapestic tetrameter. another challenging form, hoping i came close to…. one has to get creative and have fun most of all and learn a new form.

spring arrives
asleep in winter
it’s a slow stretch to summer’s warmth
melting waters flow
calling dawn
bare trees
grow
buds
