This will likely be my last post before I disappear on holiday for a week – in case anyone wonders about my absence! I can’t wait to swap the brisk British weather for some scintillating Spanish sunshine 🙂 See you all in October!
Costume jewellery spider webs,
Strung with dewy diamond beads,
Grassy fields sequin-scattered,
Festooning even lowly weeds.
Twist and twirl and flit and swirl:
First fallen survivors.
In bright azure skies,
Floating cloud of coloured silk
Boasts beautiful views.

Why is it that I find my muse
In heartbreak, grief and sadder news?
In melancholic reflection,
In festering fears and rejection?
Perhaps because I’ve naught to lose
In poems that reveal my blues,
And at my deepest, darkest lows
I find relief in rhyme and prose;
Releases pain and sets me free.

The pocket of innocence in a person’s life,
When creepy crawlies and slimy, slurpy slugs
Lurk in the depths of dark
Beneath the bed,
And unimaginable horrors capture
Open your mouth wide
And sing loud for all to hear,
Forget fear and pride;
Music is a gift, that’s clear –
Spread your tune to ev’ry ear!

I enjoyed Colleen’s Weekly Poetry prompt “gift” & “song” so much that I actually wrote a second poem – this one a tanka. I know I’m posting it after the deadline, but I still wanted to share!
