Glass Houses

Hello everybody! Day 20 of OctPoWriMo! Is it really Day 20 already? Today’s post was about being late and being forgetful. This short poem I focus a bit on memory.

Glass Houses

There was a time
When your smile was etched
in my memory.
The curve of your lips
The heat molding
The mind,
Glass blown into
Gentle heart.
The cool air of discontent
Deceit
Hardened memories
Into forgotten molds.

Peaceful Showers

http://www.octpowrimo.com/2014/10/raindrops-on-my-windowpane-day-19.html

Hello everyone! It’s Day 19 of OctPoWriMo. How are you feeling so far? This time around, I asked you to think about rain and a song. I can’t wait to make my nightly rounds and see what everyone came up with.

Since the Hurricane Ana decided to avoid the islands this time around, the rain has been plentiful here, which is why its been so heavy on my mind. I came up with this bit to share tonight.

Peaceful Showers

Tings against my window pane
Lull me into a quiet
Slumber where my eyelashes
Give cheekbones
Summer’s kiss
Ever-fleeting but
So sweet.

Ana avoids the islands,
whispers of mahalo
rustles listening palm fronds.

Earl Grey steaming
Coupled with glasses on
Nightstand,
Bookmarked book chases
Melancholy shadows.
Fall’s showers
Brought tonight’s slumber.

Found Poetry

http://www.octpowrimo.com/2014/10/poetry-prompts-getting-creative.html

Hey everyone! It’s Day 18 of OctPoWriMo  where we’re writing a poem every day in October. Today’s prompt is about writing blackout or found poetry. A very interesting challenge, indeed. My picture comes from my summer visit to West Virginia. My best friend was getting married and we did her bachelorette party in the southern part of the state at a lovely cabin. There was a lot of hot tubbing and bar-b-que. We went to the local watering hole in Thomas, WV. It was on the main street. One of the shops there had a bunch of magnetic poetry on a board. I had to play with it. This is what I cam up with:
