Poetry, we write poems

5_degrees_of_separation.wwp

childhood hopping
from sister to sister
kissing one and then another

leisurely i linger
a little longer to one
tho not so much with another

we wrap around
our secret world
embryonic flowers form
and float away

parading childhood hesitation
a blink of borrowed words
a hiss with spit, a claw’s scratch

i rush to one
i run from one

the turtle crawls
the rabbit runs
the earth rearranges

written wrinkle speak
in between the folds that
form my face so long ago
stirring stories of sprouting sincerity

——————————————————–

we write poems: no 206 which childhood… i read the prompt and thought really??? well, yeah i can write about that… and now im not so sure… it’s funny what your mind thinks and what your heart knows… just one less step than 6 one further one closer….

thomg’s three word wednesday: drench, immune, radiate

observation immune
not on their way rescue
tumbling turmoil
dust to dust dry drench

sorrow seeping sigh
rearranging righteous
surrender sagacity
handfuls of horrible harm

scattered souls survival
gather their belongings
the empty hollow heights
trace the outline of his face

hold and release
here comes the light
radiate eradicate
sand sinking sincerity

thom g’s 3ww. this week’s offer:  adamant, fabricate, peculiar
day 7, napowrimo 2011

not very good at eye contact
he kept his head low
hiding a series of grunts
gruel for expression

most thought him peculiar
bantering fodder to innocent observers
adamant opus opine opinion
detained by sightless eyes enunciate

a vet who wanders still and quiet
leftover parts his fabricated heart
torn by turmoil life and death
his wife a burning flame

candle light constant
by window’s sight
her hope to follow
come home soon
