Day 9: NaPoWriMo 2021

a blurred moon

A Slow Degradation

It’s hanging silent
that moon.
It keeps ignoring you,

in the forest,
on a hill,
shrouded in clouds.

I’m blinded by sight. Sightless, but
the truth I hear is still inside me.

So speak. So scream,
you beg the moon,
just so I can see you.

But it’s hanging silent,
in the forest,
on a hill,
in a shroud of clouds.

And when the moon’s
bright face is gloom, let
my memory speak of it.

Poetic Asides AprilPAD: write a persona poem (ie., in the voice of tulip)

When a Tulip Blooms

in yellows, reds,
greens infrared
with sap flowing
so sweet I’m fed.
in sun and warmth
upon my head,
to spring I’ll wed
and never part.

  1. So incredibly sad (the body one). I love the moon in it. She is the measure and the repetition makes her so effective. So alone and sad.

    1. I laughed a bit writing the To-Do list. šŸ˜€


  4. The Slow Degradation is moon mysterious. I smiled at your spider’s to do list. And with spring season, comes the tulips – such a pretty sight.


  5. Wow, wow, wow! I am absolutely floored by the sheer brilliance of “The slow degradation,” the imagery that works really well in “Spider’s to do list,” and sigh .. the beauty of “When a tulip blooms.” Applauding! šŸ’šŸ’

  6. I am enchanted with the Spider’s To Do List! So clever.
