Springtime alphabet – poem

Apple

Can’t

Dance

Enough

It’s the springtime boogie-woogie

Frog

Improvisational

Jazz

It’s the may-blossom medley

Kiss

Moviestars

Nibbling

On

Popcorn

We’re just the audience, the show’s over there

Quiet

Rumblings

Sweet

Tumblings

Springtime loving loving loving in the air

Unctuous

Vines

Wind

Everything’s growing like a new beginning

I’m the breeze on your skin, just skimming.

Day 19 of NaPoWriMo and we are asked to write a abecedarian poem – an alphabet poem. The formatting on WordPress is so limited. I want to write in single line spacing. There must be a way of doing that? It’s not like poets are a freaky minority demanding something weird. Single line spacing is a pretty standard way of writing a poem. I did this on Word, but the formatting just gets lost. Drives me mad. Linking to dVerse, too, even though this is not the poem I’m proudest of.

Hold your breath – for dVerse

Everything stopped moving –
Feathers hung suspended,
Grass was green and frozen,
Held in that still moment:
Ice in a blue prism –
Just speak and it’s broken.

 

The lovely Lillian over at dVerse asks us to write an alphabet sestet – a six line poem, where each line begins with a sequential letter of the alphabet – in this case, E-F-F-H-I-J. Short but sweet.
