far above candy floss clouds, ant cities below,
alone, yet surrounded in economy,
I worked out the ending.
3 pages of A4 and me.
Tonight, over at dVerse, we continue to celebrate the 5th anniversary of this wonderful community. Bjorn, our lovely Swedish host for the evening, interviews Samuel Peralta (he introduced me to so many forms – such a talent!) and invites us to write a Twitter poem – 140 characters or less!
The background to my offering this evening is this – I’ve had a novel in-waiting on my laptop for some time – only at best half-finished. I printed off the manuscript and used my work-related flight to Jersey and back today to read through it and work out how I was going to finish it. Three pages of A4 paper later and by Jove – I’ve got it!
I can’t wait to restart!
Please do head on over to dVerse, enjoy the interview and read the other offerings. And take part! Why not?!
Quiet time, me time
sketching time, writing time
Soothe me, relax me
enthuse me, indulge me
Like jewels, but more so
yet fleeting, so ethereal
like butterfly wings
or dandelion kisses
scattered on summer breeze.
This is living for me.
A quadrille about what makes my heart sing.
quadrille, cadmium red
a bleeding heart dashed on the rocks below
haiku, rose madder
soft cheeks blushing in childhood innocence
rondeau, prussian blue
shadowy arctic wastes and frozen marrow
triolet, permanent sap green
grass winking in the dewy dawn
perylene violet, davy’s grey, chinese white
free verse, prose
my raison d’être
i am but a shadow
This week, A Dash of Sunny invites us to write a poem inspired by passion. I wonder, can you guess what keeps me going in the face of day to day living?
Why not join in and take part? All are welcome and your host is a simply lovely lady!
