He drinks deeply of love –
sating his hunger
feeding a future, uncertain
what tricks could time play?
So, he drinks deeply
until he and his beloved are one
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. 🙂
Anyway, we are in the middle of a little spring break. We had a short vacation in Maine. Just as we thought that winter was on the wane, a snow storm came. How depressing. To make winter a little more annoying, I slipped on the ice and hurt my knee. The good part is, we are back home in warmer MA and we only got rain. Soon I will start my spring ritual – checking for bulbs that are peeking and noting their daily progress. 🙂
I hope you are warm and cozy wherever you are. Thank you for coming by. 🙂
