FLEXING MY WRITING MUSCLES

ENJAMBMENT – LIFE

We are obligated to celebrate life.

We have dreamed our time away; foolish, wasted

Precious time and love; perhaps now

We see the folly of our ways; and time

Lost never to come again, a singular thought

A lesson learned; a hard

And stringent message from the Gods; who

Deplore wasted time; they mourn the many lives

Whose true essence is wasted and ebbs away.

LIFE

 

 

Alliteration  – THE GLASSHOUSE

 

Magic mountains sit silent with floating wisps about their brow,

Snuggly silently sliding they fit one close to the other.

The mists abound folding molding sinuous shapes,

Rifts and rills of steam stream like evaporative trails

Cascading down a never fading curtain, a grey green screen

Dripping, glistening in dawn’s soft light.

Stoney surfaces sparkling in the shimmering light, then

Birds stretch, squawk and flutter, fluffing feathers and cleaning nests

Until daylight frees them to fly, floating high above the wispy mist.
