Full To Bursting

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Exercise in Poetic thought #4  “(from sentences in Part 1, choose 1 word from each sentence (10 words).  Use at least 8 in a new poem.”

Words: cloud, auguries, flavor, tremulous, space, embrace, song, missed, blooming, witty

Black-edged clouds
with blooming chests
cannot be dismissed.
They are auguries of
darkness and rain. A
flavor permeates space
around you, an earthy
embrace you can taste.
Crackling storms are
like aging–neither are
for the tremulous
among us.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Good job incorporating the words in there. You’re right, neither are for the tremulous, but both are a part of life.
