EDC Shorts: six words – lines – ‘poetry’ #99

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

EDC Shorts: six words – lines – ‘poetry’ #95

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…
