Remember, we used to bike, 

Far out towards, 

Soft blue-green temperate ocean tides. 

——-

Miles down the highway to —

Meet dawns arrival, 

Sunlight glazing higher and higher,

——

Until fresh morning air greeted,

Breathing in salt; 

The fragrence of memories endurance.

November Notes: Poem – Day 23 – Tankas – ” Never Us”


Today’s song prompt is “You Are a Memory” by Message to Bear.


 

“You Are a Memory” – Message to Bear

Our pictures scattered,

Cross the ground, snowflakes —

Gathering, wetting,

Our times together lost in,

Snow, packing higher, hiding.


 

Tired of calling, this

Is the last time I’m telling —

You, put my name on,

Your list of significance,

So daft –never mind, too late.


 

Today I quit you,

Today I saw through you and —

Snow piled up on–

Pictures meaning nothing much,

Goodbye, you’re just glass; I’m steel.


 

Walking beneath trees,

Nature inviting me back in,

Your frosty winter —

Gone when spring comes with daisies,

Buttercups, roses, grass.


 

Met you one last time,

Found our pictures decaying,

You looked beneath, saw —

The blue and it was stunning,

But it was never us, thank God.

#OctPoWriMo – Day 21 – Terzanelle – “Light Pierces Veil Grave” #amwriting #poetry 


Day 21 Prompt: Nature’s Calling

“When was the last time you were out in nature? A nature walk? Lake, ocean, river? If you are able, get outside for a little while today, smell the air, listen to the birds, see what animals are nearby and then sit down to write. If you aren’t able to get out for whatever reason, free write for ten minutes about the last time you were out in nature.”

When nature is green, lush, enjoy freely, 

But cascades of coloured flowers soon die.

When nature is green, lush, enjoy freely. 

——

Memories down paths, summer’s scent, I sigh.

Such beauty fleeting, worth a winter’s wait. 

But cascades of coloured flowers soon die.

——

On glorious tropical paradise sate, 

Though winter it be here, summer remains. 

Such beauty fleeting, worth a winter’s wait.

——

Difficult in dim light, dark falls, stay sane 

Though it appears darkness overtakes us, 

Though winter it be here, summer it remains. 

——-

Darkness always fades, it’s a promise thus, 

January’s end, light pierces veil grave, 

Though it appears darkness overtakes us. 

——–

Higher in the sky, spring sun dissipates grey, 

When nature is green, lush, enjoy freely. 

January’s end, light pierces veil gray, 

When nature is green, lush, enjoy freely.
