POETRY OF FIVE X

It’s been a while since I’ve posted the five word challenge poetry. I’ve tried to incorporate some of the things I learned reading about poetry. It’s a little clunky and forced. Not my best work. I believe this exercise opens new pathways in the brain, expanding my horizons. I hope it does the same for you.

28 simplicity tinge nape ice kleptomaniac

A tinge of orange streaked the sky

Announcing the beginning of an eventful day

The nape of my neck dripping with sweat

Challenges looming, nary a threat

It won’t finish itself, enter the fray

Simplicity of approach, set goals high

Don’t let the kleptomaniac of time steal your day

Use it wisely, you have class

The clank of ice in the glass

Once again you have escaped the morass

29 monkey option panoply fold heifer

The panoply of wonders never ceases to amaze

Earth cradles and nourishes us, respect it

The black and white heifer grazes peacefully

Earth cradles and nourishes us, respect it

The monkey climbs, baby on back, banana in hand

Earth cradles and nourishes us, respect it

Universal kindness is not really an option

Earth cradles and nourishes us, respect it

Fold a vision of the future with today’s reality

Earth cradles and nourishes us, respect it

30 how avarice paralyze whisk portent

Let not the current situation portent future apocalypse

We can not watch as quality slips

The avarice of the few isn’t the destiny of the many

Bad news manifests daily

Let not the current trajectory paralyze the necessary change

A better world is what we must exchange

Working together is how the future is shaped

The surface has just been scraped

Status quo is not to be whisked into the future

Progress must be achieved without border
