NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Twenty-Three

Title: Thomas Got Quite Upset

 

delayed bemoaning
in childish protection
an immature projection
of the monser within

I wasted my time explaining
how I plead in desperation
when the noise from the walls
takes over my senses
in a handful, ripped
not even plucked one by one
torn from my ground
for the sake of unnecessary mayhem

for it is chaos in its meanest form
spiteful words burning out a whistle mouth
outrageous claim, the lowest of the low

I don’t think Thomas knows upset

NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Twenty-Two

Title: A Brush with the Past

 

The war is over.
The remaining skirmishes won’t allow
new memories to form or old ones to fade;
much easier when warm from daily battle,
in the cold, the joints crack
more than ever it’s imperative
to be patient, perfectly poised;
perseverance in remembrance
that what’s learnt remains within;
call to arms, competence and technique
assembled: solemn, but more than ready
to shout out encouragement.
The bravest soldiers cover their ears
at the sounds of red fury burning holes
in common sense; right through vitality
and its essence; becoming a petty pool
of slimy residue.

NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Twenty-One

Title: Honket- Surely Gone Bad

After much deliberation
I set out to make a cup of coffee,
instead drinking dissatisfaction
empty-handed, without trophy.

By afternoon, I’d already won an award:
been crowned queen of the pyramids
by the administrators of the board;
now to decide how valid the decision is.

Squinting eyes stuck to the keyboard,
thinking in patterns, typing in straight lines.
No one else is looking or updating the scoreboard;
to create a form and to convey feeling from divine signs
is harder to keep up when the milk goes sour;
to maintain shape and structure’s now out of my confines,
expecting a close escape in the midnight hour:
as the clock strikes twelve, so will inspiration
by then, prepared to do all it takes to discover power.

 

 

 

 

NB A Honket is a never-used before poetic form with seventeen lines usually with a coffee theme.

NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Twenty

 

Title: Lipstruck

 

as thick as crayon feels the line
from commissure to commissure
half a heart in wax and crimson
end to end, no breaks
a nervous glide, bold, crude
instead of gentle feathering
and soft strokes

ripe berries
melting into vermillion
into itself
esoteric scrawling
clashing with
a scarlet face

boiled cherry sweet
dissolving at first heat
baring edges and grit
displaying a renewed guise
for a few minutes
an altered state of flush
departing in a wipe

NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Nineteen

Title: Nonet- dancer

shuffle, thunder clap into glory
reversing despondent processes
erasing former approach
incorrect strategies
freedom is a beat
I promise to
always let
my hips
sway

are you ready to begin
the moment is here and now
either time to open wide
or run terrified

NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Seventeen (Honkiteen)

Title: Awkward Honky Rhyme

 

little duck
not scared of muck
rather skip baths
is very good at maths
knows all the numbers
never, ever cumbers
he’s ethical, friendly and kind
wing to temple to read minds
professor with a head feather
his siblings gather together
for lessons ranging all subjects
coffee and all its effects
documentaries and investigations
calling friend pigeons for transportation
he has a little dutch friend that’s a girl
he choreographs his own twirls
he likes feeding from the mouth
has no plans re: flying south
he likes to send handwritten letters
but he knows what he likes better
safety first, no, maybe kisses
then dancing with the Princess
a whisker eaten up
cowboy riding his own pup
