NaPoWriMo Day 15: Here We Are

Relationship History

I showed them the ocean
And they asked
Is that all there is?

They showed me a puddle
And I asked
For nothing more.





NaPoWriMo Day 14: Multiple Definition Disorder

Surfacing

It is unspeakable, how easily one might be deceived
by memory
this ghastly bare mound of cinders
juvenile and absurd
looming large in the middle distance of the mind

NaPoWriMo Day 13: Fortunate Cookies

You already know the answer to the questions lingering inside your head

NaPoWriMo Day 12: Poetry (I, too, dislike it)

A coastal spring day
Couple’s clothes and blossoms both
Share their light pink hue

A four-person bike
Children safe between parents
Only dad pedals



I dunno man I didn't have any juice today. Have a couple haiku.

NaPoWriMo Day 11: I've Always Been Jealous of Places With Nice Beaches

From a Log at North Beach in January

NaPoWriMo Day 10: Never Say Never

20/20 In Hindsight

NaPoWriMo Day 9: Incorrect Definitions

Safe

No one really dies
In the movies

A book is safe
Because
It is a time machine

NaPoWriMo Day 8: Marvel-ous Sonnets

NaPoWriMo Day 7: Word Games

Return

The trees are stretching arms above the road
These too-familiar turnings let me dream
Adrift in thoughts that never make a sound

Above glass beach I hear the Puget Sound
The crashing waves that once were called whale’s road
And wonder if a fish can ever dream

From autumn wind, the sky becomes a dream
While naked branches dance, mad with the sound
Of raindrops pelting gently on the road

In dream, I run along the road—with silent steps that never leave a sound.




This one was, surprisingly, not as difficult as I'd anticipated. It's a variation on the sestina, a tritina, which uses a set of repeating words and usually iambic pentameter. Apparently all I write about these days is my hometown, the good old Northwest US of A. Plus, it gave me a chance to be sneaky about my 3rd word. :3


NaPoWriMo Day 6: Magic Berries

On The Making of Magic Pies
For Julia

In summer
when grass dries golden as blonde-bleached hair
she departs
buckets and baskets in hand
for the woods
