as a bubble on a puddle,
the minutiae of life inside its dome;

as a single pearl on silk,
soft hair parted by a comb,
a fresh egg or a glass of milk;

as blades of grass mingling
with a buttercup’s golden glow;

as the crisp tingling
when the accolade of rain
stops – and everything is turned down low.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Micro Poetry ~ Uncomplicated Things

Kerry is hosting this week’s Sunday Mini-Challenge, when we return to the option of form poetry and 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 can choose our own form or write in free verse, if preferred.

This weekend, our frame of reference is ‘Uncomplicated Things” – from the second line of the poem, ‘The Moon’, by Leonard Cohen.

    1. Thank you, Kerry. There was so much scope with this prompt but I’m short of time today and the rest of the week. That’s the great thing about responding to prompts and challenges – you can dash off a draft and come back to it at a later time after gauging the responses.
