Rumour – Day 14


GloPoWriMo 2019



Roomer has it

I chews to write poetry

Boulder and boulder

I franc it out

Ewe say I am butt

a flee in your ear

Hoe, hoe, hi on my hoarse

I have little hart for wrap

Thyme and tied weight

on homophones

Chased as they are

Claws following claws

The quire overdew

Herd in the hall, paws –

I have no him for them

Did they not here

It is only a roomer

Do Not Get Jumpy or Spooked

(to: Dianne)

 I witness a woman who has gathered herbs,

essences from stone and tree and dragonfly;

she herself witnessing wisdom. She is oft-times

solitary in her preparations as she makes good

her essential oils; consults the crystals which call,

embracing nature and rock mysteries. Her cat

is of her household. Never has she owned

a black cat: her aura which signals each to each.

Do not get jumpy at primal energy, only a fool

would call that out for power:

full moon energy

embracing nature

the energy beneath

the energy above.

Do no harm to the earth.

Knowledge! What is to be feared?  Nothing,

when by compassion the Good Witch is directed.

Perhaps by meditation, her enlightenment

says to you ‘ask questions’. Then ask the Good Witch.

Prompt Day 13: Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something mysterious and spooky! Your poem could be about something that is mysterious and spooky in a bad way (like a witch), or mysterious and spooky in a good way (possibly also like a witch? It depends on the witch, I guess!) Or just the everyday, mysterious, spooky quality of being alive.
