OctPoWriMo2019 Day 14 — Mother Earth

Patient kin Stand tall until We see we are them And they are us. Gaia Spirals finite, infinite loops Recycled bits, when planted at Death, their roots take for life Even our ashes give new life Mother trees watch their Children, patient kin Love stands tall Until we dare To see. Morgan Dragonwillow (with today's… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 14 — Mother Earth

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 13 — The Sycamores of Sweet Street

Lovingly I see the sycamores of Sweet Street They flow along as kin to build a canopy Mottled skins and royal crowns, side to side and down Who could be beneath their boughs and consider frowns? Along the blocks we stroll, in perfect shade are we. Looking up are jewels of light between the leaves… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 13 — The Sycamores of Sweet Street

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 12 — black — Prince Whom Darkness Prints

  Prince Whom Darkness Prints Globe that twists and swirls the depths of globe Needle thrusts at heaven – dark's needle. Wheedle built from Hell's dev'lish wheedle Trove of darkness cached as treasure trove Wasted hungry fish, starved, thin-waisted Needs to consume light of life; black needs Freed shadow bites eats bleeds, evil freed Tastes… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 12 — black — Prince Whom Darkness Prints

OctPoWriMo2019 — Day 10 — WARM

WARM cozy comforter snuggled in for rest no chilled air touches me except for my brave moon face “winter's icy sorrows melting”     I went out to find a graphic for my poem and came across the following concept.  Poetry always leads to serendipitous, delightful finds.

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 9 — Steel Snake

image link A train, snaking through terrain Carried passengers along this day Hailing from many paths on the way Stopping for passengers and cargo The travelers got out, stretched so Regarded landscape to and fro “An artist's retreat would be perfect for this place!,” spoke the painter and commune dweller. “That forest would provide wood… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 9 — Steel Snake

OctPoWriMo2019 — Day 7 — speaking in (mature audiences only)

Tantalizing tongues test us terribly to totter from truth, tumbling into torrential tastes that in time will taunt.     Languid laps of luxurious liquid lines lingering lusciously on your lovely lips; then la-la-la-la-la-la!     Wagging waddlers wander wickedly willing wanderlust wilting woestricken ones, who wonder why.     Morgan Dragonwillow is the host… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 — Day 7 — speaking in (mature audiences only)

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 6 — blue — your eyes

Your Eyes mesmerizing as a snake's cool as first ice on the pond distant as atmosphere near outer space blank as a huskie's warm as a summer lake hot as a smiling cowboy's cold as an arctic fox's clinical as an animal researcher's inviting as pie frightening as hitchcock's shower scene's frightened as hitchcock's shower… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 6 — blue — your eyes

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 5 and MM Saturday Mix – Aperture

image by:  mk vecchitto I wander halls with many doors Of varied woods and endless cores The choice I make will not be forced On cosmic course.  On cosmic course I skip through one of oak that shines Am in a place of flowered vines Each bloom displays precise guidelines There will be fines!
