Waiting

with the God-painted twilight,
i smiled as i wait for you, my light.

i still don’t have your name,
i still don’t have your face,
but our story will not be a game
neither a fading phase.

the love we’ll share will be true,
someday we’ll be one not two,
darling, i am waiting for you.

Wrote this while listening to One Sweet Love by Sara Bareilles.
A nameless face to think I see
To sit and watch the waves with me till they’re gone
A heart I’d swear I’d recognize is
Made out of my own devices could I be wrong?
Ready and waiting (Ready and waiting)
For a heart worth the breaking (heart worth the breaking)
But I’d settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love

Winged-Queen

I whispered
for her to come out
but inside her hardened shell
she whispered
“wait up”.

And so I stayed
until she sees the
waiting world,
then today after
some wiggly wobbles
wiggly wobbles,
I watched her grand entrance
like a morning sun
being birth by beautiful dawn.

Flaunting her delicate gown
I knew she needs no crown.

She is the winged-queen.
Proudly birthed by cocoon’s grim.

In honor of Mary Oliver’s work, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that is based in the natural world: it could be about a particular plant, animal, or a particular landscape.
and dVerse‘s Does your dog wear a raincoat??? by lillian.
So, let’s talk about anthropomorphism today: the attribution of human traits, emotions, and intentions to nonhumans. Hmmm…how does that differ from personification? Literary Devices.net explains “…there is a slight difference between these two. Personification is an act of giving human characteristics to animals or objects to create imagery, while anthropomorphism aims to make an animal or object behave and appear like they are human beings.”

Elegy of Us

we will soon be nothing
but a fading memory

made of warm forehead kisses
filled with innocence,
tight hand-in-hand walks
oblivious to world’s mess,

comforting hugs on
toughest turns of time,
loud to soft exchanges of
angry then sweet rhymes,

endearing utterance of names
turning them into songs,
pregnant tears shed when for the first time
you wrote me a poem,

full plates of cuisines
we tried together,
promises of discovering
the truth in forever.

looking at your eyes for one last time,
holding your hands for one last time,
stare at my tears and feel my touch,
before our us turned into nothing
but a fading

And now for our (optional) prompt! Today I’d like to challenge you to write an elegy – a poem that mourns or honors someone dead or something gone by. And I’d like to ask you to center the elegy on an unusual fact about the person or thing being mourned.
