A Storm is comming

stones beside my window sill

i feel the winters chill – crawling

out of lumpy shadows

–         vikings i have found on doorsteps

howling to their swords desire


bloody creatures dripping on screaming ground

a flock of crows

– voyages to the northern land

above my head i feel the pressured air dry

as the silent upraising of a magnetic storm

–         beware forth evermore


voiceless figures around my house

helmets clinging to clotheslines

shacks and rooftops are following me

  1. Thanks, and yes, i/we will do many more prompts….
    i think we will do the same one next week, monday, if so i will post about it on Sunday…and i will wok on that list, and think about a word list like yours..LIKE IT.

    hope that helps, if not: comment….and hope to see you around.
    wish you a great week,

    1. Stephen, so glad you took the time to write two response poems. I like this sort of creative collaboration.
      Both your poems are great. I especially liked the rythm of the first one, and how your writing transformed from the first to the second poem. i hope to see you around here. When you do a response prompt, let me know. I really enjoy reading your poetry.
      wish you a spectacular day,
