October Poetry Challenge: Day 24

Adventure

 

A faint brush of hope

whisks across my painting,

and I watch an image form

of a crow and a sparrow,

myself and another

embarking on

an adventure beyond the mountains.

*

Happy Thursday, friends! Hope you’re having a good week so far โค

October Poetry Challenge: Day 23

Escape

 

The stone feels foreign beneath my fingertips.

Dirt crumbles, moss glares, the wind accuses me.

A loud-mouthed crow dives forward.

 

My foot slips on a loose brick,

but a helping hand steadies me

I won’t be devoured by the ravenous bramble this time.

Hiya friends, I’m a bit behind on the poetry challenge becauseย I traveled to Nova Scotia last weekend to visit my family.

We went to a pumpkin farm with giant pumpkins (some of them weighed over 1000 pounds), visited pumpkin people in Kentville, and stopped at the cutest tea room called Tangled Garden.

It was a great little getaway, and I returned with a new story idea for my NaNoWriMo project ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve already written two chapters, haha. When inspiration hits, I follow โคย I’m going to save my notes for this project and tackle it in December or January.

Happy writing and see you tomorrow!

Light Abounds

 

A bright goldenrod

drops on my cold windowsill,

on this rainy day.

*

Hey everyone, hope you’re having a good month so far. I couldn’t find a pic of a goldenrod so I settled with the one above ๐Ÿ™‚

See you tomorrow!

October Poetry Challenge: Day 13, 14, 15, & 16

A Calling

 

Every month

the mournful wind calls

and I must endure it-

for the town that ignores my presence,

for the ones who aren’t yet born.

*

Want

 

If you asked me what I wanted,

I would sit back, stumped.

Other than escaping this tower,

I have no idea of what I should want-

could want.

*

Let’s Go to the Sea

 

If the wind wails a horrible tune,

then the sea promises to heal.

Or this is what I believe.

 

I can only see the pale stretch of sapphire

lined with white foam,

of what I imagine must be waves.

*

Alone

 

The dance of the leaves

reminds me of swaying trees

and forgotten friends.

*

Hope you’re all having a great week!

Lost Moon

 

There are some who say,

the wind always held monsters between its wispy teeth,

but I know better than that.

The terrors only arrived after the moon fell from the sky.

 

So here I must stay, like the ones before,

and sing away the roaring gale

bending in impossible shapes.

*

A Pit

 

Beyond my prison rests a snow-topped mountain.

Deep inside the towering giant

an abyss waits.

 

Darkness sings a ballad from the cracked rock.

I should never go there,

says the scribbled note in my book.

*

Visitor

 

Scarlet leaves flutter into my room

and a crow perches at my windowsill.

A flash of olive-green eyes and a cackle.

 

I rush to my window

but only see endless burnt-gold woods and

an impossibly tall stone tower.

*

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, friends โค

October Poetry Challenge: Day 5 & 6

Trailing Winter

Hurry, hurry,

I whisper to my friend, the sparrow.

 

Gather the last wild asters

dotting the forgotten road toward my tower.

I can see the clumps of bright violet flowers,

cheerful neighbors waving in the wind.

 

Yet, I taste winter and see its whisper-

The gold and silver and bronze of autumn

are dimming every day.

 

So I coax my wee winged friend

to bring me the last reminder of warmer seasons.

*

The Long Sleep

Snow-flecked wind hits me

as I stare out the window.

The deep cold is here.

*

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! See you tomorrow for day 7 of the October Poetry Challenge. Check out my friend’s latest poem ๐Ÿ™‚
