The Hanged Man

Today’s Napowrimo prompt was to pick a card and write a poem. So I shuffled my Tarot cards and drew

The Hanged Man.

the hanged man

This tarot card I have chosen

You hang upside down

You hang from one leg

How tiring it must be

.

Unable to help yourself

Stuck, waiting, dangling in time

Will the problem ever pass

The one you have no energy for

.

You meditate, eyes staring, suspended

Discovering the resolution

Patience, wisdom and optimism

You are free once again.

Newness and Silence

gorse

Bright yellow  flowers burst over the gorse

Like sun rays, covering the forest

Bright new leaves softly swaying

Blue skies stretch beyond the beyond

.

Rabbits hide in clumps of heather

tiny buds of pink and white appear

Deer graze on the heath in the distance

Hide, protected by woodland thickets

.

The smell of newness on the warm breeze

The sound of silence echoes in my ears

Come share this space, this time with me

Let the newness and silence be us

Rabbit

Todays Napowrimo Prompt was to take a page in a book, block out some words and make a poem.

I have chosen ‘The last days of Rabbit Hayes’ by Anna McPartlin, i am reading this right now.

I have written 2 very short poems.

rainblow

Barely conscious

Heart beating

Spurting

I’ve seen worse

Rabbit moaned

Hand to her cheek

Calmed

Take care

Don’t worry

It’s safe

.

He pointed politely

Rabbit followed down hallway

Silent

Anxious

Eyes pleaded

Not going to cry Rabbit

Be strong for you

Today.

What do I know?

So today’s NapoWrimo prompt Is to write a poem about things I know. There are a few of then :-

sea

The sun makes freckles appear on my face

I need my woollen hat when there’s an icy cold wind

That I can’t touch the bottom when I swim out at sea

That the blue Ink in my pen will turn black in time

.

When my mobile is on silent it won’t make a noise

Singing makes my heart happy,

And grey days make me sad

the strawberry top seashell is very special to me

.

I know where ever I am

what ever the weather

If I can see the sea

I know I am at peace

Key to my heart

Today NapoWrimo’s prompt was a Landy, I must admit this was really hard, so I’ve had a go:-

heaven

I once told the world the secret to open my heart

It meant that you would have to be smart

.

I wrote a poem riddled with clues for you to find

Unravelled with an unconscious mind

.

But the key is still hidden covered in cobwebs now

The box is locked, this is my vow

.

That one day the key to my heart box will be solved

Finally true love will be resolved.

Riding again

So today’s Napowrimo’s  challenge was to write a poem that involves an urgent journey and an important message.

morning light

It was on this day, in nineteen fifteen

A man with a hood, saddled his horse,

He rode through the land, as the moon was high

Shadows and darkness were all around.

.

The horse took up speed, down muddy tracks

Galloping through dense forests and streams

The man with the hood, pushed on through the night

He was desperate to beat the first light.

.

Before the dawn broke, was the end of the ride,

The message delivered intact.

As he looked in the distance,

Darkness was changing, the light appearing too fast

.

Pushing his horse to gather speed

The destination was now in sight

And on the horizon, the dawn was breaking

The house appeared at last.

.

Dismounting his steed, removing his hood,

His face was all twisted and drawn,

A white form appeared, ‘your too late, I got here first’

The message was loud and clear.

.

The man with the hood, with a howl of dismay

Snarled,  his delivery was too late again,

Beaten by the angel, all covered in white

Death would need to go riding again.

Read your words.

Today’s poem is a little more challenging, the prompt from napowrimo today was use social media quotes from friends and followers.  So I have

words.

A story a day challenge

Bubble trouble

Nothing beats some free time to relax

Unexpected Twists,

visually rich writing style, The Devil Came looking.

I’m back in the game,

a little follow up to the sea moving poem

I put my soul into superhighway,

I believe the whole world will read it

What is the secret of happiness?

Discuss. It can’t be that difficult

Procaffeinating

The tendency not to start anything.

Until you’ve had a cup of coffee.

You can just come into someone’s life

and make them feel special

Today is the day that will never come again

So make it a good one.
