2am thoughts

I unhook distant memories
from shoddy clasps
of midnight sky -
tempestuous 
                      stars
                                dive

and now I’m lost in a
soliloquy
with broken
                    verse 
shelved up high

the moon glares down
*with a soft sigh*

Why don't you
smother me
starless
 night!

I had fun taking some verses from my tweets on #poetryin13 and combining it into a more cohesive piece. Shared with dVerse for Live Open Link Night!

    • Thanks Ron! I think I was a little star-struck being with you all, thus the background filter! 🀣 BTW I read some of your stuff on 50-word stories last night and was impressed! You rock on all your publications! πŸ‘

  1. “and now I’m lost in a soliloquy with broken verse,”.. sigh .. this is breathtakingly evocative, Tricia πŸ˜€ Loved hearing you read- thank you so much for joining and thus making the evening all the more memorable πŸ’πŸ’

  2. Like a tasty mulligan stew, your poetic brew tastes fine! So glad to welcome you to our group. Looking forward to reading (and hearing) more of your work.

  3. I’m so pleased you joined us at OLN Live, Tricia, and that I got to see and hear you β€˜in real life’, rather than just words on a screen. Tweet poems are fun and I enjoyed yours very much, especially β€˜I unhook distant memories from shoddy clasps of midnight sky’ and β€˜lost in a soliloquy with broken verse’. I look forward to seeing and hearing you at the next one.

  4. Perhaps that’s where dreams come from. The night sky smothers us and the lack of oxygen drives us to hallucinate?
