February Poem #24

…to the wind

making me breathless
stirring my wild tendencies
a whisper, a fierce tempest
power to bend trees
tossing my hair, setting my soul free

January Biolet #9

there is no rustling of leaves
on this blustery winter’s day
naked tree limbs moan and sway
icy gusts swirl ‘neath the eaves
on this blustery winter’s day
there is no rustling of leaves

Florescence #4

battered, billowing trees
bent from a blust’ry breeze
their dappled crowns like seas, leaf scattered

Playing along with Jane Dougherty’s Daily Florescence Poem Challenge. Today Jane combined her florescense with a 5-word prompt from Secret Keeper. After laboring on and off for hours over the 5 words and their synonyms, my head started to hurt. So I glanced out the window and watched the wind-tossed trees. Mercifully the universe gave me a substitute topic for today’s daily poem. Coffee break over…back to spreadsheets and memos. 🙂


Florette #2

full-faced moon, lucent dreams
clouds race on tempest streams

A blustery nor’easter raged into town last night under the light of March’s first Full Worm Moon. The howling noise kept my dogs alert and close by on this sleepless night. This is Day 2 of this challenging poetry form inspired by Jane Dougherty, who I am convinced is a sadist or masochist, or both, for having suggested this two-lined beast. 🙂 Just kidding…all in fun Jane…you know I am always up for a challenge. 🙂
