Burning

stress is like a candle

slow burning at both ends

and panic

a blowtorch

in between

Grab a pen. Now jot the first thing that crosses your mind--BACKWARDS! This shall now be the heart (5th line) of your new 9 line micropoem.
Written by Charlton_Ghosh in portal Micropoetry

True Story

I was told to write a poem,

"Only nine lines long, is it to be",

That was the decree I received.

Sigh as I might, I have things to do,

"Kitchen the clean too, need I!"

Cry in vain I do,

For no one cares that dishes pile high!

With saddened heart, I finish my write,

Now to the dishes, they give me a fright!

Reminding myself

I am sick

I am ill

I am not doing well

I am stalwart

I am strong

I can keep on keeping on

*

consider the shape

of a color

I can't remember 

*

it was never a secret

how we overdosed 

on growing snow

*

there is no 

past tense

for wind

or the leaving 

of your

shadow

*

I have already 

forgotten

our silence

*

more each hour

shadows pressing

like breath to flute

mourning

their names

*

this poem is not

a mirror

yet

*

I want 

the moon

to undress me

hold me

in an open vein

of darkness

*

the ink is wet

in my ribcage

in the muscle

behind my words

*

more often

I am nearer 

the thunder

this storm inside 

is poetry

Morning coffee

the sky

faded denim

regular blue

the moon

blending into

wisps of cloud

the birds

heard over

distant honking

the plants

perked up

budding

the trees

caught shivering

morning breeze

the scent

smoke and dust

burning leaves

the coffee

bitter and sweet

another day

Tired Sun

My favorite moment is the one

just before the sun sets, when

a sleepy golden light crawls

through the windows and across the wall

and rests on a poster of Billie Holiday

screaming, “Life is beautiful”

A Nightfall's grace--Moonlight cleanses the soul
