Teaser Tuesday: Revival

Teaser Tuesday post for 21 March 2017
from Revival by Stephen King

But writing is a wonderful and terrible thing. It opens deep wells of memory that were previously capped.

Not Necessarily Ekphrasis (NNE): Time Passed By

NNE_TimePassedByThe poem

dreams of time passed by,
lives long gone;
times held fast by love





Ekphrasis, boiled down, is art describing another work of art.  For poetry, the example most sites provide is John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn.”  I call this category of posts ‘Not Necessarily Ekphrasis’, because all of the poems won’t necessarily describe the pic on which they will be placed.  I may find the picture a good match for the mood of the poem, or it may actually be an ekphrastic poem.

Poem: The Last Mile

The Last Mile

We reflect
on times more merry,
of friendships
and hardships,
when someone whose life we’ve shared
has walked their last mile.

Poem: Summer Camp

Poem created in response to Robert Lee Brewer’s Wednesday Poetry Prompt 178, 6 June 2012.  Topic: camp

(form: a trio of lunes)

Summer Camp

Home away from home-
where many
kids learn about life.

Fun-filled days at camp-
where bunk mates
become life-long friends.

Summer memories-
falling in
love amongst the ticks.

Poem: Snapshots of Life

Poem created in response to Robert Lee Brewer’s 2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 22, 22 Apr 2011.

Snapshots of Life

Only one exists
at any one time,
quick glances,
snapshots of life
captured by our mind
in the blink of an eye.
We may recall the image,
but it’s only a memory.
The moment is gone.
It existed
only once
