sitting in my garden exercising my fertile imagination while I was
watching a dragonfly flitting around whirling and twirling at will
as if it were being guided on an astronomical flight
divine influence outside of itself on some invisible whirligig
never stopping flitting or fluttering long enough for me to
see the translucence of its beautiful wings in the light.
For today’s prompt, write a poem using at least three of the following six words:
CANINE INTERPRETATION OF LOVE
Doublespeak is the way that my mum talks
when she says we’re soon going on our walks.
It could be an hour or more before she
is actually ready to go out with me.
I think she tells astronomical lies
when she looks directly into my eyes
and says that she adores me such a lot
cos the way she acts I think she does not.
I only want to spend MY time with her
Most of HER time’s spent with her computer.
Clear in translucence is MY love for Mum
but HER love for me’s at a premium.
One minute she tells me off cos I call for attention
Next minute she offers fertile showers of affection
This whirligig romance is hard for me to understand
but I’ll still always be there waiting for her next command.
