And The Dish Ran Away with The Spoon

I stare into the slightly tipped
silver dish of the moon
and sup dreams with a runcible spoon,
swallowing rocks and moon dust –
no cheese –
I don’t want nightmares.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads And the Moon ~ Micro Poetry

Today Kerry is putting the ‘mini’ back into the Sunday Mini-Challenge as we return to the option of form poetry. The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but we may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). We may choose our own form or write in free verse, if preferred.

  1. BEAUTIFUL!❤️ Somehow the reference to rocks and moon-dust enchants me.. it feels like one dealing with joys and sorrows of life with the moon as its witness.. sigh…❤️

  2. This is crazy good, girl. I especially like the first three lines. “Runcible” … I’m all over nonsense words; you know this. But it also makes me see “Run Cybill (Shepherd)” … which makes me think of the show Moonlighting… which I was completely addicted to, once upon a time.
