#OctPoWriMo – Day 1: Time – Lunes – ” Fairytale Schemes” #amwriting #poetry


Day 1 Prompt: Time

Time is such a constant in our lives, racing the clock, wishing it would go faster or slower. Rarely do we get off the train of time and focus solely in the moment. What does time mean to you?

Write for ten minutes about an instant that time stood still, with as much detail as you can.

I’m not giving you ten-

Minutes you pirate

Saving time, so it won’t —

——–

Fly; pulling me in with —

Mouthwatering words, 

Delicacies discovered with lost boys. 

—-

Awaking, dreamscapes to handwrite on —

Slate grey walls

Spinning gold on my spinning-wheel. 

—–

New challenge, birds trill softly, 

Cinderella, Snow White

Rub Genie’s lamp, grant wishes. 

—–

Cast my mind from other, 

Issues; be Alice

Slipping down rabbit hole secure. 

——

Rabbit peering at his watch

He’s late and —

Time’s needed, succeeding, rebuilding. 

——

Growing pains, Belle taming beast. 

Spreading wings that —

Are clipped, don’t fly — learning. 

—–

Remember how it was to soar, 

Such memories of —

Before, such ugly stepsister problems. 

—–

Dreams unfurling, dancing in clouds, 

Dress pink, blue

Time scatters, no Prince here. 

——

Clicks, ticks, forces me to —

The edge and, 

Swimming through life as Crocodiles.

—–

To write is to hook, 

Live in more —

Than fairytales and breathe in;

—-

Crisp clean air, words trembling, 

Fierce-Bad rabbit, 

With adventureous schemes; shot down. 

—-

If elephants fly with their —

Ears flapping; I’ll 

Survive at father time’s leisure. 

—–

Around the bend, avoid wolves

Yet sleeping, awake —

No mild princess, time awaits.

Poem: Ghazal – “Lips Soft”


Thanks to The Daily Prompt for the word prompt drop.

——

Pleasing words dripping from cherub lips, soft.

Can you hear the words sipped from eyes, lips soft.

Distant, to ears, I peer, seeing angels here.

Voicing shadows, tiny wisps, from your lips soft.

The space between us too great, falling for you.

Instigation, not my choice, gripping, lips soft.

Movement slowing showing, spitting out love.

Nearing, frustration, sipping, lips soft.

Nights turn to days, skin all ablaze.

In the end kissing, your lisp, lips soft.

Covers crumpled, rumpled under us.

Hands reaching, touch while you sip tea, lips soft.

Repeating in hours, time flies, skin brushing skin.

Mesmerized, your face slips, lips soft.

Two of us as one, adventurous night.

Never tiring of words you whisper, lips soft.

Dropping, causing moments passing,

You dropped me, snipping our love, lips soft.
