Resolution – dVerse

IMG_3143

In flight,

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?!

Pax – Quadrille

 

DSCN0154

Quiet time, me time

sketching time, writing time

listening time.

Soothe me, relax me

enthuse me, indulge me

cosset 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.

Without these – Prompt Night A Dash of Sunny

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

colour

words

my passions

my heart

my soul

my raison d’être

otherwise

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!
