Cloudy, with a {small} chance of tossing all her words to sky.

Bliss-bubbleballoon this
clover-cloud sky. We journey,
jars open, leaves spilled; giggle
-ghost our most drizzle-dreamed
stillness. Flicker me storm
-peppered fear, the dear
-dawn way green twists rosebreeze. Whisper
-curl my long-lulled scarsong, breath
sparked, shadowsound. Shimmer
-grin some
spring journey, echo-melted cue.

Skip tomorrow.
Today’ll do.

    How the heck do you people DO this?!!!! Seriously. It’s got to take insane skill. 😛

    This poem tells me you’re “back.” You know, to feeling like you’re you again.

    So many hearts for this:
    clover-cloud sky” … I would sprinkle clover on EVERYTHING if I could. Especially if we could make it different colors (purple and baby blue first, quickly followed by orange). And we should stick it in all kinds of weird places. (Now I’m thinking of “sticking it” gymnastics style, in weird places, which means landing sideways on trees and such.)

    The last two lines are profound, and stellar advice. That’s what you have to do with these all-the-worders; slam all the words together, and then stick some bit of wisdom (in as few words as possible) on at the end. 🙂

    I adore this: “ghost our most drizzle”

    Love this as well: “the dear
    -dawn way green” … I’m seeing a deer plus dawn (the sky and the soap) and a golf course, all squished together. I could work up a story around that, but you get the idea. (Now I’m thinking of Happy Gilmore … plus Harry Potter’s stag patronus. [I don’t know what’s wrong with me.])

    “curl my long-lulled scarsong” … I am nuts over picturing long, curly hair as a scarsong lullaby. That is damn gorgeous poetry, girl.

    “breath sparked, shadowsound” … Out-standing!!!
