Day 01 – NaPoWriMo 2017

April is upon us. I’ll be sometimes following the prompts HERE or from a poetic FB group I belong to. Today’s prompt is from the former and it to write a Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout.

Day 01

snatched and
edges laid.
hips full.
watch the curves
they are quite
dangerous.
and viewed
upon with lust.
reverences paid
must be submitted
with actions
pure, golden
pillars of trust.
lest you ever
swim within the
waters of brilliance
and stardust.
for this Goddess
will accept nothing less.

Killing Time

__killing_time___by_creativelikeadog

Killing Time

Big dreams.
Small lives.
No time for relaxation.
Follow the script’s dictation
caught in a constant rotation,
break formation and savor the day.
Go astray.
Find your way.
Let go of life’s frustrations
and enjoy God’s creation,
love without hesitation and welcome life.
Slow climb.
Avoid strife.
You can worry any time.

Long days.
Short nights.
No time for pleasure.
Follow the clocks measure
for life and forever
lose the true treasure of the moment.
Own it.
Hone it.
Time is the oppressor
for wherever and whenever
you want the most not the lesser of the evil.
Be still.
Free will.
There’s always time to kill.

Open mouths.
Closed Minds.
No time for us to rewind time.
Better get up and live life
spark the flame and ignite
fires of intellect inside your souls.
Change roles.
Fulfill goals.
Take time to learn and grow
cherish moments that go slow,
be open minded to the lesson life’s teaching you.
Break through.
Expand view.
Free your mind before time frees you.

Audition

Audition

 

I think you misread the sign
That I was desperate for you to be mine
So you can keep your main dime
And the rest waiting in your line
Looking for love and money
Or is it money and love in disguise
Rocking fake hair, nails and ass
Taking ecstasy and getting high
Looking for you to buy into the franchise
You’ve been compromised by the lies
But look boy I’m the original prize
Smart, pretty, natural…and full size
You need to be this tall to ride
I swear I don’t need no pint-size
But it ain’t all about the way the sail rise
I need something built for forevers
Ignite my clever
Compliment my better
What do you really treasure
A quick nut…or something worth your effort
I can make you mine
Blow your mind, send you home at daylight
So let me know if you got stage fright
Cause I’m still auditioning for a main guy
If you’re ready for the spotlight
Sit tight…or exit stage right
This is your opening night.

NaPoWriMo 2017 is Coming!

One of my favorite times of the year. NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) is coming. Starts April 1st, 2017!

There’s usually lots of places online to follow different prompts if you’re into that sort of thing. Or you can just write a poem a day.

I usually follow along with NaPoWriMo.net and see what prompts they have to offer each day. I don’t always follow every prompt, but it’s fun to try out new poetic styles and forms.

See you all in April!

Bi-Polar

Had to participate in a picture challenge in a poetry group on Facebook to get my ink flowing. Loved the photo and it spoke to me.

Bi-Polar

 

she was like night and day
one minute she was happy go lucky
the next she was in a rage
flipped switch
unlocked cage
her face twisted up
her eyes red like flames
no use trying to reason
once she’s noticed your treason
her wrath is upon you
and it’s cussing season
your pleas go unheard
explanations can’t be squeezed in
her clap back game is untested
her neck roll is perfected
fuck yo apologies
she will always be respected
and when she’s done reading you
her pleasant demeanor will resume
flipped switch
temper subdued
she was like night and day
the one you get to view
depends on the loyalty you display.
