Autumn Sunset #amwriting #dVerse

I have not been part of the dVerse universe for a bit, but was thrilled to see this “prompt” and the beautiful pictures shared by Sharon Knight at sunearthsky, each of which could easily produce a poem. And the ones she’s inspired!

I selected the following picture, which spoke to me–because, yes, inanimate objects DO speak to me. 😉

Stalker #amwriting #novembernotes

For November Notes, Possession by Sarah McLachlan.

 

Stalker

Steal my hand

runaway

with me

hear symphonies

cacophony

I am everything

don’t discard

me

you’re my life

my blood pulsing

you’re my obsession

my possession

hear my confession

you see me

as the darkness

I’m your savior

who understands

you

I do

Opposites #amwriting #novembernotes

Written for November Notes, Day 1 (ha! catch up in full force), The Night We Met by Lord Huron.

 

Opposites

We knew each other in daylight, but night was where we came alive. Hands and fingers and lips devouring, rhapsodizing some mystical force deep in the earth’s belly, deep in my belly. I hear the magic bass thumping through my heart, resuscitation, and long for one more night with you, but stark day pervades, like a killing virus, invades.

Lightning Fireflies #amwriting #novembernotes

Written for November Notes, Words as Weapons by Birdy. I thought of redirection. I am also offering this for dVerse open link.

 

Lightning Fireflies

Pathetic to consider the energy you expend to injure

how all of those atoms redirected, momentum amassed

could be lightning fireflies portending delight.

All the Things We’ll Never Know #amwriting (finally) #novembernotes

In November of 2016, I evidently was much more, errrr….what is the word…prolific? Indefatigable? I participated in both NaNo and November Notes, hosted then by Sarah and Rosema. I didn’t realize until last week that they had brought back November Notes again this year.  Continue reading
