The prompt was to play with the alphabet (more or less). I was going to cheat and use a poem from when I did this before. Instead, I tried a new one, and Aha! I like it, but I also like the other one, so here are both...
A is for Apocalypse
Architect of anarchy, asshole archetype; And
another apeshit angry anti-asshat holy epiphany --
After all the awesome angelic altar-egos
effectively alienate the aliens, isolating with the best of ‘Em,
but only if it’s after eight
and, only if you’re arboreal, all upright and sturdy strong,
can you truly see all that’s wrong.
Ardent animalistic instincts above all else — so I attack,
aggressive and artfully with much ado.
Ammunition needed to amass amenities amongst
the average anomalies in this after-lifetime of allegorical irony.
No glory, like getting schmucked by a lorry, asterisk...
It might have been a bus, but it doesn’t matter when I’m dust --
Awesome August allergies in April —
Boo hoo. Me too.
(April 24... first write/word gathering, April 25, 2020... arranged, edited, finalized, again Apr 30/May 1)
Mouthful of Marbles
I’m ignoring the prompt, which is to look at Flower and botany proper names and meaning... I’ll fish out a past poem to follow the prompt but here is the third, and final poem in The Spencer Creek Trilogy....
In the Key of Creek
Cardinal calls me to Spencer’s sanctuary:
Cicadas keeping beat.
Blue jays strike up the chorus.
Wren envelops me with his whistling, whimsical melody.
Singing sparrow sings solo.
Crickets chime in.
Squirrel spots me and stops.
We stare, sharing a sliver of time.
Uncouth crows call crudely back and forth.
Chickadees chortle, chatting to one another,
announcing, “Autumn is nigh.”
Above, geese fly -
V for victory.
Did I hear a splash?
Bustling beaver is building.
Cat bird cries dramatically.
Cooper hawk eyes his kingdom.
Deer Momma and babe bolt.
I’m honoured to have been so near.
A mink! A mink! I’m tickled pink.
She swam across the creek.
Each day, new wonders.
Spencer’s siren song,
enticing me to sweet splendour. I surrender.
This prompt is for a concrete poem, which I have done for my 4th poem, so I present the second poem in The Spencer Creek Trilogy...
The song, entitled "La Doodle Song" by Nicola Schneider (MissNikkiRocks of Team Schnadams, Inc.) accompanies my video, JOURNEY HOME, depicting an unexpected surprise of an adventure.
Mellow and mournful piano gives way to a more frantic frenzy, mirroring the actual situation I found myself to be in.... at first, annoyed that I had a longer than necessary trip home after work. But, I also, to put it bluntly, really had to pee! But, woe was me for I was yet 30 minutes from home. So, I took pictures to distract my self. And, the whole situation was made infinitely worse by the frenzied, flowing Spencer Creek that I was walking alongside!
