Unwanted Attentions – A multiple word prompts poem.

 

He made a whistle in a jocular fashion

And smiled evocatively, with a passion,

But the noise of the wind,

Wiped the smile that he’d grinned,

And his face became rather ashen.

 

It turned out he had rather mistook

The lovely young girl’s innocent look

Though his charms he’d project

He’d quite failed to protect

when she kicked them and gave a right hook.

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge – The Last Holiday

This was written in response to the Go Dog Go Cafe’s Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge.

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge November 6, 2018

The Challenge:

Here are 3 words to spark your imagination for a piece of poetry.  BUT, you CANNOT USE these 3 words in the poem.  What images, feelings, emotions do they conjure up for you?  Good luck!

gray, wind, echoes

 

Here is my response:

 

So drab and colourless,

the sky loomed overhead

And brought that doom-filled feeling,

The one I’ve learned to dread.

 

I scream into the void

The dark and dangerous abyss,

The breeze whips away my scarf.

I hear a resound, a sigh, a hiss.

 

“Come, on Jump” I hear them say,

A torment from a fateful past,

I step back from that final edge,

This was not the first time, nor the last.

 

I did not surrender, I didn’t fall

I had the strength and found the way,

This time I did not heed the call,

of death, that final holiday.
