Poem A Day Challenge: April 21-23

Standard

I can’t believe there’s only a week remaining in the 2015 April Poem A Day Challenge! It’s all gone by so fast, but I’ve enjoyed every minute.

April 21, 2015
Prompt: You are / You are not

You, my love, . . . are not.

I.
sun through the blinds
your morning smile
keeps me warm

II.
rain taps the window
your side of the bed
leaves me cold

April 22, 2015
Prompt: nature

the nature of wind

I.
a cool touch
sways the jasmine
to float on the vine

II.
a cool touch
sways the jasmine
to float on the vine

III.
a warm breath
lets the sun dance
between palm leaves

April 23, 2015
Prompt: historic

I.
strolling on the Thames
centuries go by
in just a few steps

II.
ancient stones
lie on a bed
of spring grass

c.b.w. 2015

  1. “Strolling on the Thames
    Centuries go by”…

    So much truth in your words – I feel the weight of history every time I go in to the Office (beside St Pauls).
