Together Time

Posted in Image Poetry, One Stop Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 8, 2011 by dustus

My love craves sweet together time
For life affirms emotions bared

As if stars shine like Coldplay lines
My love craves sweet together time
On beachfront sand we lay supine
One soul suspends like salt in air
My love craves sweet together time
For life affirms emotions bared

Would you like to hear me read this Triolet?

She Loved Me Too (Flash Fiction 55 — One Stop Poetry Challenge)

Posted in Flash Fiction, Image Poetry, One Shoot, One Stop Poetry with tags , , , , , , , on January 16, 2011 by dustus

*The following poem is offered in response to the One Stop Poetry Sunday Picture Prompt Challenge. This wonderful prompt was shot by photographer Kathryn Forbes, featured today on One Shoot Photography Sunday. Come check out some great shots & the interview!

We had chemistry ninth period under sweaty florescence and mutual distraction. My heart spun centrifuge-like into exhausted dreams of Katie. Standing on her parents’ porch, I approach in slow-motion. Her freckled smile, glistening chestnut eyes, smelling strawberry Jolly Rancher, auburn hair tangled and sun kissed. I stuttered. Nerves trembling when she said she loved me too.

Care for a reading?

His offering to neck
Obsession smells, Secret
Told her that he loves her
Knowing she believes him
