Here’s my response to this week’s W3 Poetry Challenge set by Michelle Navajas. (https://skepticskaddish.com/2022/07/20/w3-prompt-12-weave-written-weekly/). This week, there are two guidelines: 12 lines of free verse, must include the word ‘adorable’.
Here’s what I made of it.
Plea Free, verse tumbles, not so steadfast, a doddle, bout, just because. Blank page, impatient, curious, aghast, still waiting, willing verse to collide, carry meaning, questions, nonsense. ‘Please, clash, crash into my empty nest. Pound, punch and strike me! When the light falls on my white, I want to be black-eyed and bruised, dark purple swirled, blood red curled. A dancing rainbow soul. Adorable. Deplorable. Anything but vacant.’
