The prompt, taken from Think Written, was “cold water.”


Icy,

Shivers,

Goosebumps,

Curling toes,

Rubbing arms,

Shaking.

The water runs

over me like rain,

and it feels like rain,

it will not warm,

it’s all used up,

my shower’s

forcibly cold.

Poetry Prompts: “Apple Dumplings”

Recently I have been struggling with my writing habits and motivation to work on things. To add some more fun to writing poetry and get some fodder for inspiration, I decided to find some poetry prompts.

“Apple Dumplings”

An evening long ago,

distant, as it feels,

a lesson in preparing

an after-dinner treat.

We core apples,

mix cinnamon and sugar,

roll out pie crusts,

butter the lot.

Together we made

apple dumplings

and small pieces of

cinnamon sugar pie crust.

“[Glass] Hidden Realms” (Poem)

This is from today.

A return

at last

to the world

hidden behind the glass

which none have seen

But me.

You may have glimpsed,

but quickly dismissed

this realm

of glass and gleam

of brass and beams,

but none have ever been.

It’s carefully disguised

as a mis-sight from

the corner of your eye

that no one ventures in,

But take my hand

and we can go

beyond the trickery.

“Only” (Poem)

This poem is from today.

The time goes on,

endlessly,

when I’m here with you.

We can do most anything,

it’s always fun

with you.

But when our time

comes to an end,

it all feels much too short.

We had a whole day

but it felt as

Only

an hour or two.
