Exit – Day 30, November PAD

Enter the protection mask!
Xerox it for cheaper use
Inside, I anticipate
Terrible futures, so many of them.

Confession – Day 19, November PAD

Closing my hands before my heart
Obliviating all that I know,
Neglecting signs and prophecies,
Facts, but also fiction,
Escaping beyond the realm of everydays,
Silently and
Smiling
I go
On, and I do
Not plan to stop.

Easy and Difficult – Day 10, November PAD

Early signs
Arrive at my threshold
Surprise will be
Yours today!”

Diving into tremor
I feel I am
Facing and age-old dilemma,
Flight or Fight”. My mind races
Irrational as to what’s next.
Closing my eyes won’t help
Unless it does, in which case the
Less I see,
The better.

Password, acrostic

Hello and Happy New year 2018! That’s a valid thing to say throughout January, so I’m totally up-to-date. Here is something small for today.

Password

Protocol requires that
All access is allowed in exchange for a
Suitable code –
Something cryptic
Which
Only the chosen few can
Remember
Down the road

Did you recognise it? It’s an acrostic, and it was written for Poetic Asides, Wednesday Prompt #421. With plenty of cool verse over there.

who do you think you are

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

A very good question, asked by Marie Elena and Walt at Poetic Bloomings – Prompt #66

 

Mellow as a rotting melon

Arrogant beyond belief and reason

Raw and rigid as barbarian

Interested in plenty things, ignorant of most

Young in spirit, yawning all the time

Ambitious to leave a trace, futile.

 

Kilograms of tears, kilotons of explosion – all too easily spent

Outstanding when it comes to theory

Loving mainly herself

Enthusiastic to dive in regular depressions

Very hard to please, impossible to live with

After all that above, should we really care?

ONSET, Limerick and Acrostic

Today my blog features a fun Two-in-One experience, combining the Acrostic with the Limerick. The prompt I acted upon could be found here: Acrostic Only

Limerick – ONSET

***

One fellow took off for the town

Not knowing that he had no gown

So the moment he went

Every eye was content

To enjoy at that beautiful clown.

Rhythm, Day 24

NaPoWriMo, Day 24

1. Acrostic Only, SW – Rhythm

Rhythm rules the abyss

Hailing over dead wood

You wasted time alone

Timeless patterns get you

Hunting on your own

Mindful, random and forlorn.


2. Poetic Asides – Morning 

Blue highways
Rolling over
Your sleepiness 

On that blissful verge
Your dreamy blinks abide 

Still sleepy self can feel
The blue outside
Where birds are chirring 

Is there coffee steaming?

No dice, Day 22

NaPoWriMo, Day 22

Magpie Tales #114

Acrostic Only (TW) – No Dice

Being Poetry – Dreams

No dreams
Ordinary spells 

Dreaming underwater
Isolated perfectly
Casket around
Equally forgotten

No reason, Acrostic

Acrostic Only, March prompts:

#TW No Reason

O r, in fact, anywhere

 

R everies invite us off

E scaping any real cause

A nd just skating through

S lopes and crossing planes

O nly listening to sounds

N ot looking for results

Cupcake, Acrostic

The Acrostic Only prompt for Food and Drink in March is CUPCAKE. I tried my hand at a Septilla. Just for the record, there are many nice septet forms. I found it hard to pick one. I am not a great lover of cupcakes, but can’t deny they have appealing looks 🙂

#F&D Cupcake
C upping my hands
U nder false pretence
P utting chill away
C uddling the reserve
A waiting the rebirth
K eeping warmer ways
E njoying sweet stands
