Music lifts my spirits

Melancholy music lifts my spirits

Even in the echo chambers beyond

Wherein lies the meaningful merits

Of a hope, a song, a bond

.

Even in the echo chambers beyond

Tarry neigh, my fleeting heart

Of a hope, a song, a bond

For ancient rhymes repeating do impart

.

Tarry neigh, my fleeting heart

Soft symphonies calm your nerves

For ancient rhymes repeating do impart

And spring eternal fills your reserves

.

Soft symphonies calm your nerves

Far as the seas span, I wait standing fearless

And spring eternal fills your reserves

Melancholy music lifts my spirits


I was inspired by Ingrid to try writing a pantoum poem! Check out more about this style here. Have you every tried writing in this poetic form? I found it to be a challenge! If you are interested in learning more about the inspiration and background of my work, check out my kofi page.

Late

Humming winds willfully

Remind me

That I missed the train

Forgot the date

And didn’t arrive on time

Those memories of our moments

Showed me

That I remembered the pain 

left too late

And couldn’t call you mine

.

Lift the foggy curse of the past

From my eyes

So that I may be early 

to my next

love


I am finding new prompts to inspire me! Today I used the prompt “late” by Paul Light of Light Motifs. If you are interested in learning more about the inspiration and background of my work, check out my kofi page.

Wrangle

you wrangle

this mouthing mother.

smooth and simple

words

calm

electric movements

of my heart,

for the strength

in your arms

never ceases to send

anger away

reviving a romance

that always was.


I have been trying to challenge myself with different prompts! I found Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt and though I should join! This was a fun challenge to edit my prose into 33 words. At first I was sad to edit the original piece down, but I think it actually increaded the strength of the words chosen!
