Day 16: A List to De-familiarize the Mundane

NaPoWriMo (2019), Poetry

Button-less buttons and swipe-able screens,

Unlocked infinite potential and dreams,

Melodies and beloved voices,

Complex and mundane choices,

In my pocket,

Modern locket,

Text and images, sent and received,

Digital connections forming instant memories.

Midsummer

Poetry

Artist: Helena Nelson Reed 

 

Powdered ivory ice sky clay,

Rolling pin clouds, reveal the day,

An inhale, a moment, of post storm peace,

An inhale, a moment, of harmony achieved,

Now, diamond drops of dew,

Frame lily petals of royal citrus maroon,

We exhale our in/finitude,

Like burning sun, reflective moon.
