My friend, Tess Kincaid, tagged me in a five day poetry challenge. This is Day Two (of five) and once again I opted to write new. I am linking to an older poem as well.The poem I selected to bring back is titled "July 16, again."
I wanted to let the poets I tag know you may simply go with an old poem - great to bring them back out again - I just felt compelled to write some new content during the challenge.
awake early, crisp air met the soles of her feet
better than the roasting on afternoon's horizon
dry perhaps but still worthy of baking muffins and skin
rumbling starts low and is packaged in shaking shoulders
why are you shaking, he asks while she shakes her head
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
snoozing later, she turns her face from the sounds
of the radio, the television, the endless drone of language
wishing to return to the flirting crape myrtle, the tired grass
spinach and kale chips, unlikely groomsmen gather at the altar
tossing apples and mangos and fresh cucumber, her heart
and edibles whirr, whirr, whirr her stupor symphony
Come visit for the next four days to see where the poetry muse
takes us on this adventure, thanks to Tess Kincaid - who, by the way,
is responsible for Magpie Tales, which is the place I
look for weekly poetry prompting. Check her out this Sunday and
write along with the community there.
