Poetry with Words

Using a word list from flipside records, here is a poetic offering from a work-weary rabbit.

christen my day wistful
wind Byzantium mischief until
absurd juniper tidings
cripple hope’s stubborn teal taint
solicit an evasive well-traveled answer
erratic constellations. . . obscured mirrors. . . scornful sepulcher
these self-governing taints, mediocre poisons

I desire barmy glimmer sprinkles
that leave sweet lesions
on my soul

  1. I vote for the erratic constellations and obscured mirrors!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      😀 I like those too. Life feels like its guided by inconsistent stars sometimes, and I’m all for mirrors that don’t reflect clearly. Thanks for stopping in and sharing your favorites.

    “barmy glimmer sprinkles” They sound luscious and I just like saying this!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      😉 Makes it fun, doesn’t it. I’m not a fan of the word “barmy” (too pirate-y), but it does wonders for glimmer sprinkles. 😀 Thanks for coming by and sharing.

    I desire barmy glimmer sprinkles
    that leave sweet lesions
    on my soul…hmmm…nothing better than a sparkling night sky….

    • Yousei Hime says:

      I completely agree. With days so hot, even the sun has lost its appeal. Night twinkling, even dimmed by an enormous glowing moon, feeds the poets soul, doesn’t it? Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this.

    I’ve missed your work and glad to see you writing again – for me, I like hope’s stubborn teal taint. Hope does have a teal taint (to me) and hopefully (ha!) it IS stubborn ! “Glimmer sprinkles” also a beautiful phrase (among many). k.

      It is so good to be back. 😀 The word list was a delight with which to work. It almost spun its own phrases. Thank you for stopping in, reading and commenting. I’ve enjoyed my reading at your place as well.

  5. I love these:
    “wind Byzantium mischief”
    “erratic constellations”

    And yes, that ending is great:
    “I desire barmy glimmer sprinkles
    that leave sweet lesions
    on my soul”

    Thank you so much. I know how busy you are. 🙂
