long distance 
in the story of my childhood  
the length of a day

 
NaPoWriMo—National (and International) Poetry Writing Month (April 2016). The Challenge: Write a poem that tells a story. But here’s the twist – the story should be told backwards. The first line should say what happened last, and work its way through the past until you get to the beginning.

 
Or:

 
the length of a day
in the story of my childhood  
long distance

my old friend yellow
beneath the red berry bush
black ashes

so much more crimson
the dawn in this pale light
an old paint cloth

variations
each spring red maple leaves
a mid-morning sky

white tears
on cloud fabric an afternoon 
window drone sail

the day
fading away with the sunset
bells across valleys

a cold supper
deep in the night paisley rain
on China blue

color photographs 
fading away an old friend
as I age

 
NaPoWriMo—National (and International) Poetry Writing Month (April 2016). The Challenge: Write a poem with very long lines. You can aim for seventeen syllables, but that’s just a rough guide.

 

Time Shadows

my old friend yellow beneath the red berry bush black ashes

so much more crimson the dawn in this pale light an old paint cloth

variations each spring red maple leaves a mid-morning sky

white tears on cloud fabric an afternoon window drone sail

the day fading away with the sunset bells across valleys

a cold supper deep in the night paisley rain on China blue

color photographs fading away an old friend as I age
