E is for eerie…
I’m big on using prompts as inspiration for poetry. Today’s inspiration is the word eerie and the eerie pictures I’ve included… which is handy since today’s blog is brought to you by the letter E!
Murders of crows fly,
then land in branches above–
the air fills with dread.

Sweet mocking jay in the bush outside,
stealing songs to make your disguise,
you sing my end, you sing my demise:
with every note my time does fly.
As I sit on this cold stone floor
I wait for fate to open the door;
daily I wait each one like before–
time is uncertain, but fate is sure.

lone silent specter:
waiting, watching, resolute.
no one will escape.
I actually like each one of those poems :) Nicely done.
And that’s a huge compliment from me, because poems don’t always resonate with me – yours did :)
Wow! Thank you! Due to the fact that I hugely respect your writing, it’s an even bigger compliment. :-)
My fave was Eternal Anne. Beautiful.
I write poetry, too, and I’ve never really used pictures as prompts. Great idea! Love the poems, particularly the first one.
I like Eternal Anne.
Prompts can be a writer’s best friend. Eerie is such an awesome E word! I’m a little jealous I didn’t think of it. Your poems are great, especially the haiku. They can be fun to write whenever you’re feeling stuck.
I really enjoyed your poems! Very beautifully written!
