Mick’s Short Form Poetry Challenge #4 – Perpetuating the Rare Forms’ – Oct. 7th 2017 – Prompt: ‘tweet’

tweet

sweet chirp of a bird
melodious
soft blow of the wind

such greeting
exchanging their tweets
birds on air

wandering through forest
pure sound
as gentle as the sway of leaves

as tender
as
the love within*

Mick’s Short Form Poetry Challenge #3 – Perpetuating the Rare Forms’ – Oct 1st 2017 – Prompt: ‘wish’

challenge-3

I wish I was brave enough to love you
I didn’t plunge in, now I will not know
You’ve hanged around and now my life is blue
I wish I was brave enough to love you
Somehow I didn’t really think it through
You’ve asked and I wasn’t bold enough though
I wish I was brave enough to love you
I didn’t plunge in, now I will not know
