It’s All About the Water Today
I. (Poetic Asides: Peril)
to the dreamers, their hearts
in peril, let them be
moonstruck, kissed and singing.
II. (Miz Quickly: Thirst)
Drinking In the Deep
how those waters washed over us –
water, a spring of poetry in us, and
how we thirsted during that long
sloping summer – embalmed by
sun and enlightenment.
bring us something cold to drink.
These poems/prose are draft versions, written in participation of Miz Quickly’s prompts and Writers’ Digest (Poetic Asides) November poem-a-day challenge. The aim: to produce a chapbook for submission. ©Misky 2022 Shared with #amwriting on Twitter
