TLT Throwback – Fall

tlt-28-fall

Shivering chill, penetrates deep, piercing frozen marrow.

I am lost, and I hold fragile, autumn leaves, crushed,

bloodless, between my forsaken fingers – like my heart.

TLT Throwback – Alone

TLT 15 Alone

My fingers thread through strings of cosmic fairy lights,

drawing acres of studded satin across the glitter globe.

And beneath the stillness of infinity, I bring night’s dance…

TLT Throwback – Destination

Like waterfall mist – tears imbue my soliloquy.

Overflowing my hollowed heart – like a music box

of memories – as I slip into soft, sweet melancholy…

Book Spine Poetry

Today, I discovered #BookSpinePoetry for the first time courtesy of The Conclave of Sappho…and decided to give it a try. I not only had fun perusing my bookcases and shelves, but I rediscovered old books, new books, borrowed books, books I’d forgotten about and books I can’t wait to read or re-read!

My first go gave me this:

book spine poetry, the last krystallos,

The fearless fire-eaters looking for Alaska,
Stand a little taller across the wall…

(Emma Pass, David Almond, John Green, Gordon B. Hinckley, and Garth Nix)

book spine poetry, the last krystallos,

What I was, impossible stardust, 
How I live now, beneath the distant star,
Falling, before I die…

(Meg Rosoff, Nancy Werlin, Neil Gaiman, Meg Rosoff,
Lisa Shambrook, Sharon Dogar, Jenny Downham)

book spine poetry, the last krystallos,

After the first death, 
If I stay, 
Linger, forever…

(Robert Cormier, Gayle Forman, Maggie Stiefvater, Judy Blume)

book spine poetry, the last krystallos,

I capture the castle beneath the rainbow,
under the greenwood tree, across the wall,
through the looking glass, when no one was looking…

(Dodie Smith, Lisa Shambrook, Thomas Hardy, Garth Nix, C.S. Lewis, Rosemary Wells)

Three Line Thursday: The Argentine

Amid earthshine on the barren desert floor, we tango, hesitant

but sure. We hook, caress and incline, pivot and glide,

and sweep until, spent, we slip into night’s yearning penumbra…

Three Line Thursday: Thor’s Well

Your caress builds in a surge of waves, a groundswell of passion,

and white horses dance amid the surf of your desire,

and I am lost, utterly consumed…
