Wednesday PA Prompt.... "don't start that again.." ...a handful.....

Thoughts of what it is
all about drift like snowflakes
blizzarding spring sky

Thought We Were Finished

Thought we were finished, sure we were done
But here you are speaking as though we've not begun
Thousands of syllables tossed in the air
Vanished now seems evaporated there
Forth and back talked weaved through most of the night
Now in sunlight no tapestry in sight
Thought we would wake in comforted cover
Instead room is chilled, stranger not lover
So what were those words exchanged through the night
Do not start again a reconciled fight....

Crumpled Paper

In the days of paper torn
In mad frustration from a typewriter
Crumbled, crushed, tossed, flung, away
Silencing with satisfying ripping action
The wheedling voice sneering
" Do not start again"

At The Entrance Ramp

Breathing calm cool and collected
Banging pulse, terrored wet palms now rejected
Idling car waiting patiently in line
All is well, all is fine
Until a tiny, almost imperceptible ping
Oh no! Do not start again that panic thing!

Do we learn nothing
from the wheel of history
as more war spills blood

Take that finger away

Why do I feel I will be saying this until after the time when Hell froze
Please, little person take your finger from your nose!

Weekend Morning

Sprawled sleepiy in sun splattered counter paned duvet
Dreamily following drifting fingers of the willow's peaceful morning way
please good neighbor do not start your classic beloved motorcycle, please not today....
