NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011

27. Write a poem made of ten metaphors.

 OURS IS ....

He dances in the darkness
with music playing in silence
tunes from the future beckoned
he lies in the past of his dreams
buying a moments lingering breath
she grasps for his fading shadow
diving in a pool of tomorrow
to set aside the grief of happiness
all the while knowing nothing still
she lights up the floor with darkness

UMMMM... not too sure if I did this justice...

Today is W

Well to day is my 48th birthday !!!
so not knowing what I'm going to write
Here we go ....
When I was born
I was pink and wrinkled
wiggling into my parents hearts
When I grew into my teens
I wrinkled my nose, thinking
 it would attract a certain boy
when I was in my twenties
I spent hours in a hot bath
until I came out wrinkled
When I was in my thirties
I couldn't stand it at all
if my clothes were wrinkled
Now here I am in my forties
and every time I look
I'm getting more wrinkled
Wonder what the next forty years will bring !!
