Cyclic Interpretations

Cyclic Interpretations

Felt in the mood to write today so I headed over to Poets On the Page to see what the prompt was for this week. Turns out they want us to write about cycles. Well, the one cycle I think I’m most attuned to is one that rules my life, the moon. Every month since I …

And Another…

Divina Poetica By Jesi Scott   Spill your words onto my lips, Those soft, silky, satin drips That caress my soul Like your fingertips, As across my skin Your voice slips And tangles in strips Where light and fire eclipse The body divine in apocalypse   00

I Found My Words

I Found My Words

  Lizzi needs to read something beautiful, which is ironic because for the last week I have been trying to find the words to write something just for her. It turns out, she had the words I’d lost and kept them safe. While this may not be beautiful, I hope I turned some of the …

In Which I Write About Food…

In Which I Write About Food…

I Think I May Be On a Roll…not a Croissant

NaPoWriMo poem Day 5 prompt is an interesting one. Pick a seed name from a seed catalog and write a poem. NaPo’s site linked a couple of online catalogs to choose from but I’ve always purchased seeds from the Michigan Bulb Company. I must admit, I’ve always gotten a kick out of reading seed names. …

“April Is The Cruelest Month”

“April Is The Cruelest Month”

  The Day 4 prompt of National Poetry Writing Month was to write a poem about the cruelest month-what is the cruelest month to you and why? I really gave this a lot of thought because, truly, some months are harder to get through than others some years. And, some people (like AJ) have one …
