Almost Winter Dreams

1.
crash—
not the cat, not
the glasses, only
my heart begging
another whiff of roses
crushed untasted
unsung under
snow-melt
—smash

2.
broken night
flight of forgotten words
birds faltering, slow
snow-weighted
freighted with fear
here comes their cry
why do I wake
ache for dreams unspoken
broken night

Playing with two prompts today. First part inspired by Quickly, second part inspired by Jane’s circular poetry.

  1. “flight of forgotten words” Beautifully put and oh-so familiar! They’re both so lovely but this really touched me – and made me a bit envious of your skills, I must say:

    only
    my heart begging
    another whiff of roses
    crushed untasted
    unsung under
    snow-melt
    —smash
