Lonely comes from knowing you

liked morning to kiss your lips

lulled from dream drenched slumberings,

little aware of my heart

longing for your mulled murmurs,

lured into sweet pain of hope.

Lonely comes from knowing you

Reena’s exploration challenge – lean into loneliness

dVerse OLN hosted by Sanaa

I picked ~ a decima

I picked sea shells crusted with white

pickled in ancient ocean spice

I dug my toes in, it felt nice

till a crab crawled up for some light

and gave me a terrible fright

My three year old lungs yelled out loud

spraying sand and shells all around

I lost my balance and flat fell

face down on that crawling crab shell

running my little pride aground

magnetic ~ a decima

Considering we’re poles apart

and yet together we’re great,

Why do opposites attract fate?

Definitely doesn’t seem smart

especially at every  start

squishing tightly, one negative

with one exultant positive

But somehow magnetic charm

amalgamates flower and thorn

And therefore in oneness we live

Reena’s exploration challenge – singularity

Time blanket ~ a quadrille

Time’s precision pendulum swings

lulling me into surrender

sweeping silly senses under

quilted blankets of beguiling

delusions of imaginings

cozily wrapped up in rainbows

warping Time through a window

into, over, future and pasts

stalling, staying, scuttling fast

TickTock TickTock. What’s fast? What’s slow?

ghost ~ a decima

So let’s say I die tomorrow

with my bucket list still unnotched

I’ll be so infuriated

I’d refuse to quietly go

And you won’t have to miss me so

I’d glow in the dark of your night

and scare all the others in sight

I’ll add a bit of scare and chill

I know you’d laugh and love me still

as ghost who can’t give you a fright
