July 5 Alliteration (Assonance)
Write a poem in which all the words in each line begin with the same letter.
I initiated its immeasurable impositions, independently…
shiny-sheened smokescreens settling, slowly spreading…
for faded fractal figures, fastidiously fermented figments…
tediously tethered to the tyrant’s terrain…
drowning dread deeply, drained down dissentient…
laughing loudly, layered like Life loves Lady Liberty…
again and again, another atrocity’s appearance assaults…
bygone be bygone, beautiful blonde burden burn brightly.
The ceiling tells me,
stories while I’m not sleeping,
– A Haiku-A-Day for Beasts of Articulation –
I once adopted,
a sad orphan from abroad,
now he will not leave.
Droplets of illness,
raining infection on me,

May 18 A to Z Poetry Challenge:
Another day of this,
Bending to your will,
Everyone’s differing views,
Full of themselves,
Given the choices,
Held onto by hope,
I have let go,
Killed that hope,
Lost that dream,
Made it to doorway,
Never turned the key,
Open anyway for me,
Please just let me see,
Show the pages,
Watered down versions,
Xeroxed into truth,
Your falsified poetry,
Zealotry through words.
Weekly writing challenge May 11
Why does sunset come so early
Creeping stealthily, but occurring rapidly
Denying the beauty of a life yet to live
All becoming harsh shades of silver and grey
How to beat back the sweeping of night
Fight the snuffing of all light
Courage, hope and faith
That’s all that’s left
For a soul bereft

I fought hard to get there ~ knowing
time was not on our side.
driving miles of highway
sifting through millions of thoughts in my mind.
I had to see her,
stroke her soft silver hair ~ feel
the warmth of her breath
to the rhythm of her heart.
I wanted so much to hold
onto the beauty of her soul ~ wrap
my arms around her tightly ~ ~ ~
never let go……………..
She was present for my sunrise,
I was present for her sunset
in between it all ~ we lived
mother and daughter.
