A bumper crop this week, so a big thank you to everyone who participated and pondered on participating. Lovely poems as usual.
Elaine, a first timer was also first in this week. Elaine posted from twitter and WP won’t show her address, so if you’re reading this Elaine, send me a link next time and I’ll be pleased to post it.
Winter’s freezing grasp
squeezing back life
and push together:
Jennifer. Gorgeous as usual. Just read it and enjoy.
Kat—not dull at all but bright and uplifting.
Ken’s bird’s eye view. Lovely.
darkness, like a hood
prized light and freedom
forward beat of wings
closing on prey
talons find their mark
visions of darkness
wild and free
constraints left behind
Peter sent in a conifer poem first, but we’ll let that pass.
and a second poem that really is an hourglass, with a beautiful nautical theme.
Geoff’s first attempt, he wasn’t quite satisfied with. Second attempt, bet he wishes he’d had a chance 🙂
The price of the hourglass
It is every girl’s dream
That one day she’ll
Heads warn her
She’ll regret the
Figure paid for that dream
Led Men’s eyes
Those same men
Had no brains. Dickheads
Natalia with a magical ‘chalice’.
Sri with an hourglass take on the nine waves theme she has adopted 🙂
Merril with two playfull, springlike poems.
Pat—with a blaze of colour and turning seasons
Kerfe—with a title like that, who else could have written it?
Janice—placid and hushed, waiting for spring.
Kim—the exact opposite to peaceful, all sparks and electricity.
Doug—takes the reader from here to megalithic times in the space of a few lines. Tremendous.
Marje sent in this delicate little hourglass, so appropriate for the theme, just as I was preparing the post.
Thanks again. The poetry is wonderful, it really is. Tomorrow, another theme. Be prepared for a change of tempo.
