NaPoWriMo – Day One

this is no
poetry refinery – this is just
finding some poems

purse your lips
if you will – kiss them
I shall not

reel to reel –
in this digital world today
kids don’t know

there is something
pure in composing – finding words
that sing together

this is no
dribble from a leaky faucet –
collecting in sink

this is a
dribble down the soccer field –
towards the goal

These lune poems were inspired by the seven words prompt at Miz Quickly’s. My words were: refinery, purse, reel, pure, and dribble. And, yes, the last two are supposed to go together.

  1. Lovely fun, Richard. I particularly like the image of ‘finding words/ that sing together’ and the allusion to anticipating a goal — how good we do feel when it works!
