Poem #6

I am a bit behind in posting these, but they will all get out eventually. Maybe by the end of this I'll have enough to consider another chapbook:-) Today's prompt was to write a poem loosely based on the events of the day. Here it is.


Rising, stretching, sun shining in

Morning rises inexorably

Meeting, greeting, voices tangle

Clarion call to urban revival

Waiting, wishing, sweater pulled close

“I am satisfied”

Laughing, touching, hold me tight

Careful someone’s watching

Singing, listening, worship together

Intimacy grows in community

Cracking, dipping, pull it all apart

Getting your money’s worth

Thinking, dreaming, sleep comes slowly

Much to contemplate
