SHORT POEMS FOR DVERSE

Photograph by Shanyn Silinski (Please click the photo to get to her FB page) ๐Ÿ™‚

He drinks deeply of love –
sating his hunger
feeding a future, uncertain
what tricks could timeย  play?
So, he drinks deeply
until he and his beloved are one
against time.

The fall leaf held fast
through loneliness, wind, and snow
to have one last spring.

For this week’s DVERSE Poetics, Shanyn wants the community to write micro poetry inspired by some macro photographs. I have been having difficulty with writing lately – I was thinking that the day I could not write poems anymore had come. It was becoming harder and harder to string two words together. Thanks to this prompt, some ideas still managed to squeeze through. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, we are in the middle of a little spring break.ย  We had a short vacation in Maine.ย  Just as we thought that winter was on the wane, a snow storm came.ย  How depressing.ย  To make winter a little more annoying, I slipped on the ice and hurt my knee.ย  The good part is, we are back home in warmer MA and we only got rain.ย  Soon I will start my spring ritual – checking for bulbs that are peeking and noting their daily progress. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you are warm and cozy wherever you are.ย  Thank you for coming by.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. two lovely writes…I like the uncertain future in the first and the clinging in the second. I too wish winter would let go of its hold.

    I’m glad you found something to grasp on to with this prompt…I definitely understand the poem-less feeling.

  2. Hope you’re okay…. We had a real winter storm today… one of the worst actually…

    Your first poem is very ‘romantic’…. and the second whimsical… Of course both are wonderful, and I can’t see you ever running out of words… Diane

  3. I hope your knee recovers quickly. We had warm (50) weather here early in the week and then we hit single digits last night – no spring bulbs yet. I have the same spring time ritual with them, this year it will be extra exciting because I’ll have to search them out, I know there are some planted at the new house, I’m hoping for lots, it’ll be a surprise… but not for another few weeks!

  4. Sorry about your knee Imelda but hope you had a good break anyway and starting to feel better. We are having warm, sunny weather here in the UK but anything could happen. Spring, for now, is fully underway very early! I do feel for you with writing ‘block’ but you ‘wrote through’ and came up with this delightful poem so well done! I’ve been going through a bit of a writing crisis myself which I will be blogging about soon. Take care ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Sherri. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for coming by and leaving some encouraging words. I am behind with visits and all _ I had a difficult time last week with reading pages and writing, too. But I will be by your place sooner or later.

      I hope the beautiful weather holds for you. I know you have been buffeted by storms there. Take care. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I always look forward to your visits but only when you can Imelda, I understand fully, I seem to be playing ‘catch up’ so much lately…

        Lovely weather here this weekend, the storms are a distant memory but the damage will take a long time to fix for some poor folk.

        I hope you are feeling more refreshed now and enjoying a lovely, family weekend with some beautiful spring days… ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. That last one had my eyes tearing up – that is exactly how I feel about the leaves that make it through the winter on their branches! Well done! LOVE your set…:-) Thanks for joining in.
