This poem is an ink-
dance, it’s my trance,
a riddle-maker’s tune
A poem for the sake
of sun-glassed stance
for red-eyed-dawns and
dusk of cotton-candy-skies
This poem’s robin-voiced
a dance of cranes
It’s my daffodilly garden
and a craze-eyed crow,
a nesting duck.
This poem is a crave for moss
and even if it snows some-
times in April,
this poem is for spring.
Today I have the honor of writing the prompt at toads. I took the subject of spring in my poem. This is my 29th poem for 30 poems in April.
April 24, 2016
Your kennings sizzle with vibrant energy. A lively spring poem so in contrast with my weeping autumn world. The autumn leaf photo heading my post was actually taken on a walk this afternoon.
Ah, I love the craze-eyed crow in this riddle-maker’s tune. This is such an uplifting read. Thanks for taking compound words to a new level in your challenge.
OH, I love this poem, so full of the best of Spring, not to mention all of those new compound words,,:-)
The description of a poem being an ink dance is lovely, and then the rest of the poem with its vibrant spring imagery…lovely!
This is so alive with spring’s energy. I feel you really used the prompt to its full advantage with this piece.
I agree, this poem is alive with the vivaciousness of Spring 😀
I love it all but I won’t copy and paste every line but the following just tickles my fancy: ” for red-eyed-dawns and
dusk of cotton-candy-skies”
“This poem’s robin-voiced” I love that!
Almost there! This one certainly bubbles up for Spring!
Ah, sweet–we have a similar nature over here upstate–where it could still snow–hope not–you have many lovely combinations here, Bjorn–the lover of moss my favorite–k.
Love that last stanza, especially. My kenning for NaPo the other day was about a poem. 😉 Today’s is about the poet. It’s so funny that I have been “kenning” for years, and didn’t know it.
I was trying to pick a favorite but I love it all…the third stanza and beginning of fourth really capture me! Love this challenge, Bjorn!
Yes, it dances and sizzles.
Ink-dance welcoming spring…love all your kennigs
Whenever a poet of caliber writes about poen & that too for Spring time it is “Extra special….” This one is one such. Exquisite indeed 🙂
This sounded just like a fae riddle to me, Bjorn! I bet the fairies would love it, too!
Your poem brought about joy-spring and heart-dance. Beautiful!
Well this certainly put a smile on my face, and a spring in my step!
