Blueberry Stormcloud

Days 6 and 7 for the poetry writing and I'm still falling back on the good old staple of haiku - and not even technically using the form correctly....   Perhaps just a generic short verse form would suffice.  Still, it's quick and interesting and is a good way to keep writing, even in a minimalist way!

Blueberry

I hate blueberries
No berry should ever be blue
That is bubble gum


Stormcloud

stormcloud come to me
raised eyebrows, smile curling now
at those who scatter
electric oxygen high
grey warning of shocks to come

For the first time in a long time...

I haven't written anything in a VERY long while!   I'm just back from Paris so may well write something about that in a while but for the time being, Maria (https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=2378533675754752363#overview/src=dashboard)   and I are writing poetry for this month using random words as a stimulus.  I've missed the first five so here there are in one go -

Charity
Charity is dead,
when lying on the floor, she
reaches out in vain.


Ink
i stumbled across
a river of your light and
curious words here


Mimosa
you shrink from my touch
frond fingers reaching in to
protect your beauty


Rain
some rain falls often
on the plain but the rest falls
on this sceptred isle


Happened
she wished for something
so fiercely that her heart hurt
but nothing happened



It's just for fun but it's good to spend time thinking about words again!
