Garden Games

d’Verse Poets Pub – Games night!
Sarah has us playing computer games. I chose the following three

Elder scrolls
Space war
Torchlight

I walk through the rows
By tourchlight, my trowel
In hand, a packet of seeds
In my pocket
Trying to plant the ‘old’ way
Under the light of the moon
Following the method written
In the elder scrolls –
Hoping that at harvest time
Peas and beans and squash
Will be engaged in space wars

Swing On

NaPoWriMo Day Twenty – vocabulary of a sport or game

Swing On

Let’s take a swing at
This poeming thing maybe
Write a birdie or two (in the bush)
I’ll iron the wrinkles out of my
Sentences if they’re not up to par
Maybe wedge a rhyme in there sometime
Let my muse be the driver until she put(t)s
A hole in (my) one heart and turns it
Green with envy
Let’s take a swing at
This poeming thing
And see if it will take wing like an eagle

~~~~~

you think I don’t see you
watching my every move
ready to cry foul at

the slightest beat of my heart
but I can read your soul
in the flash of your eyes

I’m not the one who
doesn’t play fair
