stop trying to please and take some time for you to smell spring’s sweetness in the moments after the rain roses misted, dressed in red
NaPoWriMo2022 -Day 6 Prompt: write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first letters of each line, I’d like you to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line.
the night lingering into day…no consolation when death comes a-calling
Magnetic Poetry - Poet’s Kit
2022 has been the year of the reaper in our little menagerie. First to fall, our sweet 18-1/2 year old diva kitty, Casey, on January 14th and next to succumb, was our 8-1/2 year old hunk-o-love, big boy Maxwell on February 22nd. The gray sky and rain are cooperating oh too well with the drama of it all. I’m a bit of a mess, especially around mealtime. Two less bowls to fill…:( Hug your fur kids, your kid kids, your grandkids, big kids, little kids…or find a tree and hug that. You never know…you just never know…RIP my lovelies…
I see red when I hear their slow sad voices repeating the lies of a fool who secretly hates them; their hearts poisoned by darkness. It is of no use trying to save them for they are long gone…I must look away, smile, and melt into blue.
