Summer Preserved


luscious fruit preserves
summer sun sealed tight in jars
warmth for winter days

Scent




crystal droplets cling
scents taken by the updraft
murmur in the breeze

The Mag - 121/OSI 224

Still Life, 1670, detail by Jean Fran├žois de Le Motte
a small treasure found
tucked away
among the debris   
of what once was
shinning brightly...
beckoning
longing to be remembered...
and loved once again

silken whispers



trembling in the wind
as soft as silken whispers
echoes of the past

Paraesthesia

For the 100th prompt @ Think Tank Thursday- eccentric.
- pen a poem based on any work of Tim Burton


stabbing, stinging, prickling skin
stick more pins and needles in

from my royal throne I reign
this my kingdom full of pain

odd sensations I cannot quell
but here I rule in private hell

I am the queen of paraesthesia
so doctor please, some anaesthesia

*Paraesthesia is the term used to describe odd skin sensations that are a result of damaged sensory nerves. The sensations felt are usually tingling, burning, stabbing, pricking, crawling, and are often extremely painful and permanent.

Waiting For Rain



and then the rain came
with it - possibilities
quenching my parched soul
