Getting lost is not a waste of time

  • She lies ~ free verse

    She lies calm
    The wind is silent
    Nothing touches her

    In her veins
    Blood runs golden
    Distilled to perfection

    Covered in camouflage
    Scars scorned for their story
    Beyond salvage

    All of her past
    Is stored in the loft
    Above all else

    She lies calm
    The wind is silent
    Nothing can touch her

    For Sadje’s wdys; Fandango’s FOWC ~ salvage, RDP Monday ~ golden ; GoDogGo cafe’s promote yourself Mondays

  • In the wist ~ free verse

    In the wist of a sigh
    In the blink of an eye
    Before the whys
    Forever pays the price
    For if ever you try
    To get past the white lie
    Slipped in with a beatific smile
    You'll come to realise
    No matter the miles
    Or colour or guise
    You are always surprised
    At the enterprise
    Logic defies
    How deception beguiles
    You are mesmerized
    You sign the dotted lines
    And forever pay the price

    For Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt ~ enterprise (73 words);

  • Creativity Forms Verses ~ Wiggle Waggle

    David  of The Skeptic’s Kaddish and Sangeetha of Mindfills began a fun poetry partnership in April. We celebrated writing together a 100 verse renga The HyakuinRipples.  And within days, decided we would absolutely love to continue our writing collaboration and celebrate what has grown to be a warm friendship with new poetry projects.

    We decided to explore poetry forms. A to Z. Each week one of us chooses a poetry form the other responds to. We completed our first series Form verses creativity in June ’22. We knew we’re on to something. So we wrote the next set of poetry forms A to Z ~ Creativity Verses Form. Here, we added a little twist for version2.0, with a key word starting with the same letter.

    And now, and in December ’22, we’re onto our fourth collaborative writing project ~ Creativity Forms Verses. To form verses, we turned to creativity, inventing new poetry forms, A through to Z.

    For ‘W’, David created the ‘Wiggle Waggle’ form.

    W: Wiggle Waggle
    David’s Wiggle Waggle
    It's late, and I'm very tired;
    I ought to sleep; I've work tomorrow;
    Projects to be done,
    Errands to be run;
    My wife and daughter- long since retired;
    Yes, I'll be responsible.

    But... the night's only begun;
    No one's around to distract me now;
    My muse is inspired,
    Besides, I'm too wired...
    Surely it's no harm to anyone
    To compose just one more verse.
    Sangeetha’s Wiggle Waggle
    I wake up. I have to write.
    The words go wandering off to play;
    While I deeply think,
    My dumb cursor blinks,
    My acute acumen goes on strike;
    I have no poem on my page.

    I wake up. I want to write.
    The words line up quite magically;
    Syllable and rhyme,
    Together sublime,
    Compose precious verses that delight;
    I have this poem on my page.

    silent silhouettes stretch Time

  • To meet ~ a Sijo

    To meet my truths, I often go where ordinary lives

    I get no epiphanies, but I get the courage to be real

    In quiet contentment, I know my truth lies in being me

    For dVerse Poetics ~ spaces and places. Ingrid of dVerse wants us to write a poem on spaces or places that inspire us. To me that space is in the preciousness of the ordinary; Ronovan Writes Sijo ~ contentment

    A sijo

    *Three Lines
    *14-16 syllables per line
    *A total of 44-46 syllables for the entire poem.

    • The first line of the Sijo usually sets the theme.
    • The second line elaborates on the first line.
    • The third line brings the poem matter to a close.

    your side of the bed

    the sweet life we led

  • I ~

    I believe the moon is shy today
    The way she hides her face
    in the lace of a wispy cloud
    out for a stroll in the sky
    Why oh why
    am I
    reminded of you
    confused by your perfume
    consumed by the summer breeze
    the moon

  • rainbow ~


    dots to my window
    slush to my wheels
    I put my face up
    to see how it feels


    curve of the sky
    paint-brushed with light
    from heaven's bow
    magic aglow


    varicoloured band
    for the sky to wear
    when she feels happy
    and pirouettes with flair

    For dVerse MTB – To write on Compound words – when two (or more) words are joined, creating a different word with another distinct meaning. I chose rain, bow and rainbow
