falling up

i  have allotted snow-dropped hours to this

kiss.   me.    awake now on stale breath lifted delicate

on the scent of summer’s second coming promise.

i have allotted snow-dropped hours to this

wilting.     swooning by the window in check-mated minutes,

nose,   lips,   time   pressed against the smoke-mirrored glass.

i have allotted snow.       dropped hours to this.

kiss me awake! now. on stale breath. lifted. delicate.

NaPoWriMo day 12:-  For today’s prompt (optional, as always), I’d like to challenge you to write a triolet. These eight-line poems involve repeating lines and a tight rhyme scheme

these dreams are sighs

Day 4.:- takes its cue from our gently odd resources, and asks you to write a poem based on an image from a dream.

these are dreams

only

no-one cares

to listen out for

these are dreams for

no-one

cares

if

 

a soul slinks off for

these

stammering over broken glassescurled up in cornerssymbols staggering masquerading as prayerssprinkled with paprikamint and see salt

 

a soul holds out for

these

hanging off fangs off were wolveshowl sickled&scythed along veins&skeins  of lightening’s shuddering with mirth

 

a soul breathes in for

these

illusion bathed tendrils on frondedfingers stalled between stars&seeds crossed over as jewelsdripped in lovers heavy heartedbirdsongs wanting the coldest of snow nests

 

a soul flies in for

these

darknesses jasmined off wingless pickings frail as elephant skins&childish giggles echoing over absent truthes and creeping tongues of loosened citrus skies

 

these are the seams

running running running

for their lives

for their dearest illusive lives

 

 

these are thinnest in the mornings

as we rise

simmering still off lips still yawning

over toast and marmite and cooling tea

pass the sugar, hon, please

he sighs

 

these are the dreams that slink off for

you to live a ‘normal’ life
