The random spectre of staying

Poem me with milk and honey,
whisper marigold and pansies,
sing me scents of sunny.

Poem me in ash and charcoal,
ink my veins with venom,
sting me silly, close the manhole.

Poem me from fog to autumn
Stay from bliss to skinless boredom.

  1. a bit of whimsy and delight …. sinfully delicious, dark and bright …. as it should be …. happy poeming 🙂

  2. As always, you’ve chosen gorgeous imagery and I love the cheekiness of ‘sting me silly’ :)). As Mish says above: “a delight to the senses”.

  3. Love how you used the word POEM … and the rest of it as well!

    Here it is Tuesday poetics, and I’m just starting catching up with quadrilles … and there are 54 of them! GULP
