PAD Challenge Day 7

  Thorns of a Rose
the impatient thorns of a rose
catching your eye with her colors
so bright and cheerful but beware
under her petals are sharp knives

she will kiss you and cut you twice
the impatient thorns of a rose
pricking you as soon as you touch
she only lets you come so close

from afar the smell entices
you come in for a better look
the impatient thorns of a rose
she doesn’t taste sweet like she smells

for a taste you will pay dearly
that she would cut you was clearly
told to you but you went ahead
the impatient thorns of a rose

red roses fully bloomed,red rose bush, small rose bush,

Here is today’s poem. It is a Quatern. I have never written one before today. I will probably not get tomorrow’s poem up on the blog until mid-day on Monday. We shall see.

Follow me on Instagram; I am sharing poetry on there too. I am putting my old tanka onto new photos and kind of making haiga. I feel like I have shared my haiku so many times, and that some of my tanka were overlooked. I will start doing true haiga with haiku soon. It’s a process to get it posted to Instagram, so bear with me! The more likes and follows I get the more motivated I am to post. I will follow you back on Instagram if you tell me you are a blog reader.

I am kind of in the middle of a following freeze on Twitter right now. I’m about to hit 2,000 following which means I can’t follow anyone until I get 2,000 followers myself. So follow me on Twitter and tell your friends to as well. I unfollowed a lot of accounts that looked inactive, or personal accounts that weren’t following me back, but I am quickly edging toward 2,000.

If you are reading this on your cell phone and want to follow me: you have to click on the title of a post, then scroll all the way down to the bottom until you see the pictures I’m posting on Insta and Twitter. Click follow to keep up with me on those sites. I post different things to different sites. Follow me everywhere to see all of the cool things I’m talking about.

Day 24 NaHaiWriMo 2017

Today’s prompt was “in short” and we were supposed to write a minimal haiku. I can do sad well, so I did a short haiku about being sad. My hormones are messed up right now and the dreary days make me sad.

Muted Choices

They’ll tell you
that the world is yours
that you can be anything
and go anywhere
they don’t tell you
some of the choices
are muted

 
 
I tweeted this after seeing an #orjay prompt about muted choices. I thought wow – that is so true, some choices get muted. Some things are hard to hear and therefore hard to find. Sometimes it is implied that certain things aren’t for us.

I didn’t think this poem was dark enough to go in the Dark Poems category, what do you think?

Speaking of choices –
