Late for Totally Optional Prompts


Totally Optional Prompts posts: Tardiness



Late

her future loiters
on the double offsides
of a dozen tomorrows ~
tonight she breathes
a kiss for amour
to the bright Venus star,
first twinkle of dusk,
while pleading to miss
that well-known downside
of endless tardiness

Something we all want to miss!

Those first three lines are awesome! And I like the echo of double and dozens!

Your thoughts and words are always so well placed and precise. I love those first three lines. And, your artwork is beautiful. Have a nice weekend.

The imagery in both the poem and the artwork are comfortably familiar, yet at the same time, awakening.
