Watercolors – Poem of the Month – March 2021

Watercolors

Silver-grey of early evening sky
shines its light on my still waters
waking me from a reverie
My sparkling diamonds dance
on gently rolling ripples
as buoyant ducks bounce
 
Twilight swathes me
in its purple cloth
and I wear amethyst gems
Silhouetted birds in black
fly low returning to their nests
as stillness falls in silence
 
The night brings an indigo blanket
adorned with sequined stars
Reflecting on my mirrored surface
Gently I rock to sleep
in the glow of a silvery moon
rising slowly in the darkness

prompted us to write a poem from the perspective
of a color.

Rite of Passage

Dusty pink taffeta sky
lays in folds against
a blue-grey background
of twilight
The raft of northern ducks
silhouetted and bobbing
on a pewter lake mirroring
the last of the day’s offering
A rising moon chases the sun
from view as darkness descends
Sounds fall silent when the day 
gives way to night and 
and the handover is complete

and/or imagery.  I chose imagery for
my poem.

 

Look Up There – A Quadrille

Look Up There

Orion straddles the sky
His belt twinkling
Lighting the way
Stars sprinkling
 
A cheesy moon
at the halfway mark
The shadow of his smile
visible in the dark
 
Match made in heaven
A lover’s tryst
Moon and stars shine
As the earth is kissed

De Jackson, aka Whimsy Gizmo, is hosting
Monday Quadrille at D'Verse Poets.  Tonight
he has prompted us with "Sky"

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

This is a reworked poem of mine from several
years ago that fitted this category.
