Poefusion Friday Five


Poefusion today presents these five words: pinion, mizzle, bloodshot, gypsy, thirsty. In a fit of overwriting exuberance, I attempted to use all five. Sigh.



Titlefree

near the end of the ides
a bloodshot sunset dropped
down the hollow, mizzle
dulled the gypsy soul now

thirsty for love and weary
of the intractable pinion
birthed at the black moon

autumn forged a heady brew
carried angst to light,

set her spirit free

This was GREAT! I even learned a new word, ides. There's such a contrast between the poem and the picture. I think autumn/ Halloween with the poem and summer/ rainbows with the picture. I love it. Keep up the good work and thanks for stopping by Poefusion and trying out my prompt.

Have a nice night.

And you write, write, write :) and each one is so beautiful. This has a wonderful movement....like the spirit moving to light. The first stanza is divine, as is 'carried angst to light'.
