NaPoWriMo Day 11

Surreal illusions break the melody
into unending desperate grief
memories shimmer on your lips
aching to feel softness or love

beyond the black night of unfulfilled life
remember the calm goodbyes
without watery breath
nevermore lost

NaPoWriMo Day 10

A dazzling muse, lovesick for music
contemplates the mystery shrouded in clouds.
A future imperfect quickly encloses
her breathtaking world of imagination
burning the wonderful notes of melodies yet unsung
into her mind and soul.

hear now her dream tremble
like thunderous lightning arcing across a stormy sky
she strikes the artist with fire so fierce
the fingers burn to record word and song
to create a moment of beauty
for all who listen.

NaPoWriMo Day 9: Good Enough

Um...not my best but in the spirit of the challenge I shall keep moving forward.  Do not think this one is complete, so suggestions for improvement will be greeted with the happy smile of artist fulfilled

"Good Enough"

Remember the false aching?
How imperfect beats forever trembled?
You believed the loving dagger with its false skin
like a sparkling jewel of promise
would end the yearning...
Your sweet emptiness would pass away
if only for brief moments
and that was good enough
to be called love.

NaPoWriMo Day 8: Two for the price of one

I have 2 poems for y'all today seeing as I did not write one for Day 4.

The first poem was written using a instant poetry app on my iPad.  When it was done, I had created this image in my head of refugee children from a historical war (the picture is of some French refugees from WWI).

The second was a blend of magnetic poetry (the first three lines) followed by a spurt of inspiration that the magnetic words couldn't keep up with.

Please comment, share, or plus? 


The Uninvited

The uninvited tremble...out in the cold
lost in the unfilled quiet
surrendered to the bitter bindings
of destiny
their shrouded angel eyes fear nothing
                               forever wandering


Deep within a memory
her bright shining knight
fiercely promised the world
but the world was not his to give
and he failed her heart
with wandering eye and roving lust
so that no more she dreams
of castles and queens
or happily ever afters.

NaPoWriMo Day 7: Invocation

Between the sacred stones I stand
With humble heart
and upraised hands
The sun above and earth below
the wind a voice singing low
In this space I touch the soul
In this space I am whole

NaPoWriMo Day 5: "Uncertain"

NaPoWriMo Day 5:  "Uncertain"

playing catch-up with poems as my weekend filled with activities and I was unable to sit down and do a daily poem.  This poem was written using a magnetic poetry app on m iPad.  (Bless technology, eh?)


     Uncertain are the tears                       Uncertain is the existence

Surrendering threads          or                seeking shadows

              Hunger     within    the      blind     hand

NaPoWriMo Day 6: “untitled”

NaPoWriMo Day 6:  “untitled”

Weekend came and I missed a few days, but I’m back and ready to keep plundering through this challenge.  This poem was written using a magnetic poetry app on my iPad.  No title really jumped out at me so it’s remained untitled for now.

A charming black raven
Sleeps without a home
eyes linger on fine fields
wings open for flight, gliding beneath grey sun
hidden screams shroud eternity

the shining lady approaches
