NaPoWriMo: I watch the wild tableau

I watch the wild tableauwhere do the clouds go,

Ships made of mistsailing the sky,

Grey as gulls’ wings / with their burden of tears?

Sea-born and cradledthey pass without waiting

Bringing the rainin a watery blur

The geese and the cranesthey fly by uncaring

Heralding springwinter drags in their wake.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Now that is excellent. I really am starting to appreciate this particular form of poetry. And so full of wonderful imagery.
    Just like your clouds … I am blown away.

    1. It seemed SO difficult as an idea, but with a bit of practice it’s no more difficult than any other form. It gives a great result though. I’m glad you like it 🙂

      1. Well you tackled it like a bard of old. I’m sure you could give some of them a run for their money! 😁
