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.





Day 28 NaPoWriMo: Skeltonic Verse

NaPoWriMo (2017)


Your mind will not be my cage,

Light the palo santo and the sage,

Purify and turn the page,

Pause for righteousness, cease, release,

There is a case for Godliness, a reason to seek peace,

We must still ourselves as the world continues to turn,

Though absent now, the sun will return,

We will descend or rise together,

Let’s be wise and rise, let us be windswept feathers,

Floating on the breeze of mystery,

Hope, hardwork and many dreams,

Collaborating to rebuild our shared reality.
