I love to keep my hand in with writing, especially when in the midst of publishing work for Magic Fish Dreaming.
I’ve been looking at the prompts at Tweetspeak and having a go at them. There are plenty of wonderful poetry prompt sites, and I really enjoy working with some of the tools others have developed as well as developing my own.
One must have a mind of forests
branches creaking with the wind
a song of long forgotten ones
to be covered by shades of green, rich and velvet
tasted by the eyes
cupped in bowl like hands then
eaten for future dreams.
Light sneaks in from the sky
to streak across the
through the gaps of green
lines of warmth
awakening the green.
I look to the leaves
praise to the sky.
