Strung Along By Charm

STRUNG ALONG BY CHARM

he said her
eyes
were like sapphires

no more blues…
now:
new merriment

Virgo’s child-
hood
dream: lapis ring

Blue Lagoon
for
their Honeymoon?

royal turns
to
midnight shadows…

He: “We can’t.”
Blue,
she said, “We’re through!”

tears replaced
with
new blue suede shoes

Inspired by Reverie Twenty-One: charm bracelet, at Joseph Harker’s naming constellations blog. The prompt had multiple layers; rather than repeating the prompt here, go check it out!

  1. Paula, I’m glad you gave this one a go. You evoke so much with those short stanzas, yet I was able to follow along easily enough. Playing with blue was fun. And you gave it your own spin, using each poemlet to tell a story.

    1. Yours inspired me, Richard. I was afraid I wouldn’t want to try it after having read yours first, but it was “open” enough that your excellent example didn’t keep me from trying. Thanks for the encouragement! And for your kind words!
