A Poem inspired by the prompt ‘I see’.

I see on my desk a glass of water almost full.

I see on my desk a cup full of pencils and pens.

I see on my desk a laptop.

I see on my desk a pair of reading glasses with brown plastic frames.

I see on my desk a roll of sellotape.

I see on my desk a little tub of lip gloss with a black lid.

I see on my desk a copy of ‘Little Sister’ by Raymond Chandler.

I see on my desk a pack of Power Animal Oracle Cards.

I see on my desk a birthday card from my husband.

I see on my desk fragments of my world.

A Poem called “I forgive you.”

A poem on today’s prompt which was forgiveness.

I forgive you like a liar,

I forgive you like a friend,

I forgive you like a believer,

I forgive you like a lover,

I forgive you like a queen,

I forgive you like a wanderer,

I forgive you like a magician,

I forgive you like a blacksmith,

I forgive you like a whore,

I forgive you like a warrior,

I forgive you like a child,

I forgive you;

Because forgiveness is all there is.

A Poem entitled “Early Morning Hour”.

Actually used a prompt today.  I don’t like using prompts most of the time because I’m too rebellious and when people say “write a poem about this, that or the other” I end up thinking “no, I don’t want to!”

But today’s prompt was to open a book at random and pick out three words and then use them to create a poem.  There was more but being me I elected to ignore the rest!  The book I choose was “To The Lighthouse” by Virginia Woolf and the phrase I picked out was “early morning hour”.

Title – Early Morning Hour

Cold blue light seeps into the world

In this early morning hour.

Nothing sings but the birds;

People lie cradled in their beds,

The day lies before us like a clean slate.

Wake now for the day has come,

And this could be the day

You leap into being.

A Poem For My Sister

My sister is going into hospital for an operation on her hip on the 24th October 2012 and although I’m sure everything will be fine, you can’t help worrying.  I’ve been thinking quite a bit recently about my relationship with her and so this poem is for you, sister of mine!

Title – Sister

What strange things to share; blood, DNA and parents.

I have known you my whole life.

I cannot imagine what life would be like without you.

There have been times when you have seemed overbearing and bossy,

But other times when I know you are the best friend I’ll ever have.

We share so much more than just an upbringing;

We share each other’s hearts.
