Poetry Friday: Quick Writes

Somedays when I am short on time, I write quick verses on my iPhone. I jot them down on my notes app on the home screen. On days like today when busyness invades my life, I revert to them for both inspirations and to use as posts.

We are hosting a garage/moving sale this weekend. The hours today are 8am to 8pm. It’s been busy so far. I’m on a short break in our kitchen while my husband mans the fort out front. If you want to read more about our garage sales you can check out yesterday’s post.

Since I am short on time, I am using one of the poems that lay in waiting on my notes page. This is a nonet I wrote back in April. It is in reverse, with the poem starting first with one syllable and then ending with nine.

The end of the day: A nonet.



Sunlight fades

Nightime unfolds

Blues turn to orange

Orange becomes dusky

Pink. And, pink becomes purple

Purple envelopes trees and land

Until just water shines in moonlight
