In A Daze

In A Daze

Wandering aimlessly
with no destination
Bumping into walls
Looking for affirmation
Seeing stars falling
Appetite lost
Smitten with infatuation
Fingers are crossed
 
Intimate interaction
with hope of durability
Crossed wires likely
In all probability
One night of passion
Causing one to gulp
Pierced with an arrow
Turning the mind to pulp

Sound of Silence – An Elfchen

Sound of Silence – An Elfchen

 
Silence
The sound
is still golden
and my heart rests
Peacefully

In response to Go Dog Go Cafe's Tuesday Writing Prompt

The Elfchen is an 11 word poem written in 5 lines— Line 1=1word,
Line 2=2words,  Line 3=3words, Line 4=4 words,  Line 5 =1 word.
Lines 1 and 5 should not be the same word.  

Mel at Crushed Caramel also tagged me in this prompt.
Check out her Elfchen!

One Liner Wednesday

Good morning! Another Wednesday rolls around and I’m hoping you all had a good week. Linda G.Hill’s One Liner Wednesday is a sure way to get over Hump Day. I always enjoy reading everyone’s positive quotes and funny anecdotes. This week she asks us the question “Good or Bad?”

Here is one I found. Have any of you ever done this? 🤭

Have a great day!

Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light


It was the destiny
of the dark souls
to be exiled
forever in
the murky
land of doom
 
Those blessed
with sunshine 
traveled to
the honey mine
on the other side
of the moon

Sarah is hosting the bar at dVerse Poets Pub tonight
and has declared it Games Night.  We are to use at least
three video games to work into our poetry.

I chose four games:

Honey Mine
Doom
Destiny
Dark Souls

Seeds

Seeds

In the forest
of petrified trees
where there is not
even a leaflet
to be found
There, lives hope
 
Under the earth
the seeds
of sentiment
struggle to germinate
So they may
walk life’s tightrope

Kiss The Dust – A Quadrille

Kiss The Dust – A Quadrille


The steady rain kisses my cheeks
Mixing with my tears
I am waiting for you to come
and quell my deepest fears  
Why are you so late my love?
 I hope it is not true
You have found someone else
Maybe I always knew

dVerse Poets Pub is hosted tonight by De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo)
and we have been challenged to write a Quadrille with the word "Kiss"

 A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, excluding the title
