5 Nov: NovPAD Day 5

AI digital art: shipwreck in storm

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.

waiter,
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

  1. “how those waters washed over us –

  2. Goodness, these are both so beautiful, Misky. But that first one is so so good.

    1. That poem was originally three stanzas, but I realised that only one was needed to get the point across. The other two were just fluff. I’m glad you liked it, De.
