Here is our #Etheree poem, using the synonyms of the words  CHARACTER & WILD…

 

What

Aspect

Of myself

Do I like best?

Free native spirit

shed my unwanted clothes

To have no inhibition

Run naked into the ocean

To be as kind and lush as Nature

Take one day to be a barbarian…

Keep

Me from

Leaving you

Stay beside me

Keep me in your eyes

My soul I give to you

Call me back from the dark void

Here the leaves stand still, nothing moves

I am still somewhere, locked in your heart.

Pray, don’t erase me from your memory

See me through the mist, standing by the river

I am waiting for you to know me

To hold me, kiss my closed eyelids

Bring our lost love back to life

To dry my cold dark tears

Stay with me this time

We have one chance

To love again

I see

you

Here are your two words for this week:

Plan & Spend

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words. ❤

 

Plot

Each move

Like a game

Lay out pieces

Invest in myself

Employ the best methods

thoughts flood my mind thick and fast

Plans by mice and men, not this time

I tune into a higher power

ready to blow my investors’ minds…

AAAAA

Here are your two words for this week:

Influence & Perception

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words. ❤

 

My

Knowledge

Is sketchy

Of God more so

Imagine my shock

When I open my mail

An invitation to tea

I have something for you to do

What can I do, that God cannot?

The force of his words was simple, believe…

My

Own dark

Beginning

Devouring life

I lay waste to all

Not a care in the world

Until a child touched my hand

Bringing cold stone heart back to life

no longer devour life, I stroll through

Happy to wait for a new blessed sunrise…

AAAAA
