EDC Shorts: six words – lines – ‘poetry’ #102

 

Poem – Six Word Miscellany #1:

 

Six word stories three with meaning

Some get followed some get read

Thing is you can’t like everyone

It’s not like we’ll ever meet

 

Young hearts fragile as old bones

Catch her cold she goes viral

Born to see days like tomorrow

Wait a moment and it’s gone

 

No escape tied up in dreams

His will to keep her near

Her hand quite ordinary till held

The gift of his life hers

 

Reality no place in this fantasy

Smile at the ludicrousness of stars

Take away the madness let breathe

Be still let yourself go now

………

 

[Six word lines written over time come together – guess it’s in the mind.]

Dawn:

Dawn light filters through

Shutters angle a rainbow

I wake warm space beside

Your scent upon my body

 

My eyes look into yours

You cat-stretch on all fours

The curving of your spine

Send tingles into mine

 

Your knees astride my hips

You dip to touch my lips

Tongue tips taste prelude

My rise and fall in you

 

Laid in hand held silence

A new day … you and I

The night before unknown

Two strangers we no more

English Schoolboy Memories Punctuation Free

Short trousers can’t remember if ever new

Pockets a handkerchief no money never any need

School dinners free milk walking two miles there and back

Saturdays a sixpence mint imperials aniseed balls in their little box

Sundays Dad at home football train set toy soldiers mother raising eyebrows

Early sixties Boxing Day snow began long month later would it ever go away

Long trousers become necessity Wellington boots drift walking into school

That summer turned eleven grammar school didn’t make it yet in other ways…
