Dear roses (NaPoWriMo)Day 2

Two weeks you stood on my table
ignored but not so completely
your scent made me miserable
though you did nod your heads sweetly.

I mussitate but unstable
I’m not. Am not angry with you
at glisk I kiddle your fair hue
but can’t forgive his caddish ways
the sleepless nights, the restless days
Dear blooms, my love for him was true!

Today’s optional prompt is to write a poem based on a word featured in a tweet fromΒ Haggard Hawks, an account devoted to obscure and interesting English words. I chose the following three.

Also written for Val’s scavenger hunt: Write a Decima poem or write a poem using the theme of roses.

  1. Are you kiddling me? πŸ˜‰

    I love those words.

    Today has brought enough glisks for me work on remembering the word. I want to keep it, store it safely, and use it whenever as glisk comes up. The word deserves a kiddle.

    1. Hehe, Tracy! April and Oct prompts set something free in me. I go all out when writing for these prompts.
      I like finesse and pizzazz very much, though I wouldn’t use those words to describe my style!
      Thanks so much, Tracy! You know how to make my day. ❀️

      1. You’re most welcome! I always will eventually πŸ™‚ This month is super busy for me so it’s quite intense at the moment trying to keep up with everyone’s posts so I’m a little behind. And NaPoWriMo is keeping me on my toes, ha ha! I shall swing by again soon ❀
