October Poetry Challenge: Day 7, 8, & 9

Echoes

 

The wind weeps tonight.

I press my hands over my ears

but I can’t stop listening.

 

The low moans tug at me,

and part of my armor unravels

into silver dust.

 

Shoving my hands into my pockets,

I close my eyes and sing as loud as I can,

until my voice grows hoarse.

 

The gale doesn’t stop crying,

but neither will I stop humming.

I mustn’t fall asleep while the wind wails.

*

They Say

 

They say she was fair,

fair as the dark red dahlia,

cheery as the loyal sunflower,

and sweet as jasmine.

 

I say I wish I knew her,

wish I could talk

to the one my heart longs for.

I say her name is Mother.

*

A Welcome Song

Leaves chatter and chant

as the regal Autumn King

awakens at last.

 

*

Sorry I was away for a couple of days πŸ™‚ See you tomorrow!

  1. All three of these are wonderful!!! These are my favorite bits:

    “and part of my armor unravels

    into silver dust.”

    And:
    “fair as the dark red dahlia,

    cheery as the loyal sunflower,

    and sweet as jasmine.”

    And the entire third one! Just wow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
