agonizing thoughts poets
beg to end; just wanna dream
sky’s darker shade with moonlit
peeping in the corner the night.
the never-ending finifugal
of wanting to say goodbye
but not needing to let go
all in one piece of prose;
and maybe of poetry, that
would stellify every desire
heart’s filled with meraki, as
universe may finally say;
take it or leave it
never look back or
don’t let go, pick one
choice is yours.
adieu is hard, harsh or
sometimes an outright
death sentence, but
every poetry has to end;
just as every story, vale?
This is my final offering for Val’s NPM Scavenger Hunt: https://murisopsis.wordpress.com/2023/03/31/looking-at-nonce-forms-for-npm/
The Silver Shovel by Monty Vern is a variation on the Golden Shovel where you take a line or lines from an existing poem and credit the original poet and poem.
The Silver Shovel uses each KEY word as an end word skipping words like a/an/and/the/, etc. that are not essential to the meaning of the line.
You must keep the end words in order. The new poem does not have to have the same subject as the poem the line(s) were derived from.
The bonus is to use a poem from a WP poet. I use a line from Maria’s (https://mariamikayla.wordpress.com/2023/04/27/poets-dream/) poem called, “Poets dream,” “Poets dream of moonlit nights”
Also for Reena’s Exploration Challenge
