Alone

So today is the last day of #napowrimo. However inspired by many people I have decided to see if I can manage a poem a day for longer… who knows how long . Todays Prompt is to take a poem written this month and write the bottom line first until you get to the bottom of the poem which should be the top line.

Here is my backwards poem

bay

He kept his promise

He lifted her down off the rock, kissing her

She looked up and there he was in the distance

Hearing a noise was that his voice in the wind

.

She felt so alone

Where was he? They were going to go crabbing

She could see the crabs playing on the bottom

Gazing down, the deep dark pool swirling around

.

Sun warm on her head

Red skirt fluttering around her bare knees

Her hair flying in the blustery warm wind

Standing barefoot, her feet cold on the smooth rock

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

peace to my ears

waves

.

Green grey sea crashes forcefully

Booming waves land on the pebble beach

Fine spray shooting upwards the rocks,

Landing on the top, showering the limpets

.

Dark rock pools swell and rise

With swirling sea and small white crests.

Soft powder blue sky and tiny wispy clouds

Broken up by Vapour trails crisscrossing

.

Bright yellow sun beats down,

Glistening wet pebbles at the water edge

Heat of the sun warms the spring air,

An icy nip brushes against my face

.

Seagulls soaring on the warm breeze,

Gracefully across the pale blue sky

A small boat, bobs up and down gently,

Looking closely it thrashes around,

.

Smashing into the greying waves,

Fine spray flies upwards

Wind whips becoming stronger, harder, faster

Waves move in strongly,

.

The forceful wind, the waves crashing,

he seagulls screaching is peace to my ears

As I lose myself in my own thoughts

In the spring sun on the beach.

A Promise

Standing barefoot, her feet cold on the smooth rock,

Her hair flying in the blustery warm wind

Red skirt a fluttering around her bare knees

Sun warm on her head

.

Gazing down, the deep dark pool swirling around

She could see the crabs, playing on the bottom

Where was he? They were going to go crabbing

She felt so alone

.

Hearing a noise was that his voice in the wind

She looked up and there he was in the distance

He lifted her down off the rock, kissing her

He kept his promise

We got away with it

We got away with it
My thoughts are on the weather
The winter snow just flurries
The winter rain very light
The winter wind light and breezy
The sun has been bright
Warm on my face
It’s almost spring
I walk with such excitement.
Then I look outside,
Only to see hard snow falling
Blizzard like, drifting down
It huge fluffy snow flakes
Fast, furiously, covering the ground
So we didn’t quite get away with it.

Thank you

Your kindness and feelings are important to me
Like the wind that carries the seeds to their new resting place
Like the sun that warms the earth and makes us smile
Like the rain the flows steadily to hydrate us
Like the ice that freezes the ground to slow life down
Like the snow that falls and creates beauty
Like the ebb and flow of a river ever changing
Your encouragement refreshes me
Your kindness enlightens me
Your passion inspires me
I thank you for entering my life.
