Foolproofed - 6. Chapter 6 The Rest

Day 29

Patience invites the impetuous to rest their head on a soft, fragrant pillow, and runs cool, soothing hands through their hair.

Patience trickles life’s nectar on their tongue to savor.

(the quality of patience)

Day 30

A serious poet poets with sense,

structures with rhymes, lines, meter, and stanza,

improves the meaning of poems immense

by using lots, lots of hot, hot... java.

 

This spring poet was inspired by season,

fueled by balmy breezes on the skin,

impelled by warm rays of a brighter sun,

and Vivaldi's bird calls by violin.

(Errata Prompt)

 

Plus One

Night slips out of her velvet cape

and slings it playfully at the Brocken,

the air is charged with magic,

anticipation raises every hair,

hands grip broomsticks firmly,

skirts and blouses billow in the wind

a silent signal and—

 

Walpurgisnacht is on!

(unprompted)

Thank you for reading my poems one last time. This year's NaPoWriMo is over.

It has been a perfect way to celebrate spring. I had fun, as I wanted. I hope you did too.

Take a look at the other participants's work, if you haven't already done that. There are great poems to discover.

If all goes well, till next year.

You ended the month on a real high note.  I love the senses invoked in 'patience'.  The errata prompt made me giggle.  The last one brings me with her on the broomstick.  Until next year, my friend :hug:  :kiss:

I love your take on the quality of patience. I was happy to be able to read and enjoy the month of poems within the actual month. Thank you!

These last three were lovely! Each in turn delighted me. I really liked your take on Patience. The errata prompt was playful on my ear. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for these: too soon, April ended.

So glad, you liked the forgotten three. 

April ended, but there will be another April next year, and poems will swarm again. Thank you for reading my poems and sharing your thoughts, Parker.
