English #frapalymo Day 31 – The Warmth of the Sun

Sun
Shines down
On the world
Radiating effervescent light beams
Warmth


#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog Just Fooling Around with Bee.  Today’s prompt is “eleven”.  We were prompted to write an elevenie poem if we wanted to. I’ve never heard of before, but I enjoyed writing immensely.  Although, I can’t decide if I love the end product or not…

I’m sad this is our last day and I want to say a huge thank you to Bee for translating and making it possible for us to play along.  I can’t wait until November!

English #frapalymo Day 29 – Homage to Writers

Your words transport me
To another place
Another time
Foreign becomes home
In your loving care
Weaving words into
Tapestries
Of love and loss
Of heartache and joy
Once strangers
Now friends
Cling to my heart
Forevermore

English #frapalymo Day 26 – Fans

Bodies
Pressed together
Writhing
Thumping
Jumping
In time to the beat
Hearts pounding
Sweat splashing
Energy pulsing
Laughing
Singing
Screaming
Fans


#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog Just Fooling Around with Bee.  Today’s prompt is “macro picture: in the sardine can”.  I had a rough time with this one until I realized I didn’t need to be so literal…  The one place I’ve felt the most like a sardine is a rock concert.

English #frapalymo Day 25 – In the heart of the sea

In the heart of the sea
I found myself
Stripped bare
Grasping for life

In the heart of the sea
I found myself
Flayed open
Barely alive

In the heart of the sea
I found myself
Staring at death
Smiling

In the heart of the sea
I found myself
Wishing on a star
For one final glimpse of home

English #frapalymo Day 24 – Deep Cuts

Isolation within
Creates a cocoon of
Hopelessness
Thoughts distort
Feelings warp
Until there’s nothing left
Anxious
Despondent
Begging for sensation
The deep cuts start
Rivers of blood flow
Feeling returns
For a split second
Of bliss
But the spring runs dry
And all that remains
Is lonely
Disturbed
Silence


#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog Just Fooling Around with Bee.  Today’s prompt is “cut off”.  I realized after I wrote it that I went in a slightly different direction than the actual prompt.
