Today’s prompt: catch the sunlight

  1. I always love these challenges. Here’s my poem for the prompt:

    the moon kisses
    us both; knowing
    the white tumuli of blood
    at our feet
    is ours; in a dream,
    I’ve been the meronymy
    of ocean to ocean;

    I would see the black stars
    and their explosions
    into a sea of pareidolia

    but these dreams
    a fidelity of blood
    the first of the blinded eye
    to see

    the bone-white frost
    and thorns at dusk
    swayed in the
    broken trough
    of skin like a lonely
    venom;

    born from father’s dust,
    to melancholia whispers,
    catch the sun;
    light is shunned by
    a madman’s lament
    in the insouciant Kalahari
    flowers

    the moon has broken bones
    its light on the tree, disembogued
    like the in utero petals from
    the dulcet Hellebores; our winter
    rose.

  2. Here are my thoughts…

    Holding The Sunlight

    I taught her to catch the sunlight
    to hold it in her hands
    and let it warm them
    with the scents of summer
    to let it’s rays shine through
    then open her fingers wide
    and let it go free.

  4. FEAR NO MORE THE HEAT OF THE SUN

    Catch the sunlight
    Enjoy its clutch
    Keep its warmth
    Savour its touch

    For soon it will die
    Its purpose served
    Its welcome embrace
    Was unreserved

    (The title taken from Shakespeare’s ‘Cymbeline’.)

  7. greetings from LA

    time and me

    time sits across from me
    sticks her dried out tongue at me
    i ignore time and ithink about how the Sun catches in his eyes
    sometimes the night dwells there too
    the Moon interlaced with sparks of blue and black and only a color that God can name
    time and i we have this relationship contingent upon
    who falls from the table first she’s so wicked mean witch and i almost the same
    then i think about him
    i think about how those eyes
    the Sun has caught and keeps me mesmerized taking my plans away from me
    the Sun gets lost and the spider web blue topaz those are
    i’m a fool
    time laughs at me
    she laughs at me
    lady time she’s never believed that he catches the Sun in his eyes
    she doesn’t want me to know that the radiant ocean of his soul is where i can go
    time is a jealous harpy
    dry heavy silence
    unyielding and she stares
    me in my eyes that don’t catch hardly anything anymore
    dark
    fire out
    tired
    sometimes we muse at the thought of how he catches
    the Sun in his eyes blue so so blue
    my eye
    my third eye so so extinguished

  10. If you can catch the sunlight
    will you share it with me?
    We can bask
    in warm delights of two
    dance in summer’s dreams
    laze in happiness
    under rays of glory
    forget the world woes
    and live in today
