Bones sing soul moments.
Understand: inside, just lips, eyes:
small nature. Soft hands, unable.
Need past; unable. Brain felt mortal:
motion golden, rhythm, knowledge, thoughts.



Sky abyss: laughter.
Wings lonely begin rain,
ocean attempt salty breath:


Skin, air, long-lungs:
drink selfish!

Realise. Continue. Remember. Try
heavy sweet waves. Comfort:


Feeling memory singing
cold bright veins; holds instead pulse-poetry.
Face silent: away-like.

Paint things. Kiss hours. Desire play. Fall truly.
Grasp emotion. Stop. Embrace smoke.
Bring childhood. Falling. Soil. Coffee.

Midnight wolf begins romance... bleed!
Separate prayer: gravity. Understanding, darling.
Sip magnificent ambition alongside decaying ribs.
Fingertips couldn't fight droplets. Must
follow moments, gone to where best clouds lie.

******* wanderlust. Swimming.
Fighting. Confused. Smiled & swallowed:

You mad scene poets.
This is for my friend Katy, It's a new experiment, and I'll probably follow up with more, I find a poet on Hellopoety and go to their "Words" page. Then I write something using only the words on that page, adding only punctuation and line breaks. It's been challenging for some poets but immensely rewarding for others. Send a note if you try it, I'd love to see your results
