Today

Day 19 OctPoWriMo

Prompt: Being in the Present

Form: Synchronicity

The sun seems shy behind the haze
birds chirrup in muted tones
autumn

Hurried mornings, wi fi playing truant
smoothing frayed nerves
fatigue

Kitchen no longer a safe haven
no cravings, no urgings
lost taste

Exhausted afternoon sprawled on bed
hardihood slowly seeps through
tea break

Evenings no longer spent in front of the idiot box
with smooth talking scuttlebutt mongers
respite

Twinkling street lights beaming invitation
fearful mind chides
mask up

~ ~. ~ ~. ~ ~. ~ ~. ~ ~

Eyes fixated on handheld flickering screen
ears turned towards door
waiting

Ringing phone at midnight shatters silence
longer wait for togetherness
that’s life

  1. Well done! I especially enjoyed this:
    “The sun seems shy behind the haze
    birds chirrup in muted tones
    autumn”

    Dandy imagery and I liked the alliteration of “sun seems shy”
    Thank you. xoA
