Ode to Friday 55

21 Nov

There are days
when love of you
makes a promise
like June skies
so blue
I want to turn the earth
upside down
and dive
glide through watered silk
to gooey bottom
probing for pearls
mine irritants
transformed to
iridescent orbs
treasure to fill
quickie tales
of adventure and love.
Today wasn’t one.

~Nara Malone

    Short and sweet, Nara – and sensual too … smiles

    I really like the image of gliding through watered silk…..but some days don’t turn out as one would hope them to despite the promising beginning.

    You fooled me with your sensual images, until I read the closing line. And I like the title of your poem.

    LOL Loved the last line, Nara. 😀

    The big build up and well done, for the let down, also equally worked well. >KB

    Ha! That last line was a killer… some days just aren’t, are they?

    Oh I don’t know Nara, you seem to have
    done quite well if you ask me.
    Creativity doesn’t always descend like a sledge hammer.
    Loved your disclaiming 55
    Thanks for playing, Thanks for your wonderful support
    You are such a Peach! Have a Kick Ass Week-End

    All revealed in the last line…made me smile!

    Well done! I love the twist of the last line. 🙂

    haha… yeah…some days are just as they are…it can get better though…smiles

    LOve ‘June skies so blue’…makes me think of blue jeans, the beginning of summer…tomorrow could only be an improvement 😉

    Very nice.. Love the searching for pearls

  15. aprille November 22, 2013 at 3:33 am #

    A non-ode to today via your dream wishes. You turned it upside down. Interesting.

  16. Teresa November 22, 2013 at 8:13 am #

    That is my absolute favorite quote! I used to have it hanging in my classroom when I taught writing. 🙂 Your poem is certainly a gem today!

    The ending is the clincher. Wonderful write Nara!

    Love the tongue in cheek approach, and the devotion to the cause, as well! I find 55’s to be terribly addictive, myself, though some come easier and dive deeper than others.

  19. Susan Chast November 22, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    Today became one anyway, such is your skill at diving through the irritants to the art.

  20. Other Mary November 22, 2013 at 10:52 am #

    Very sensual, or sensuous, or both. I get those mixed up. But I digress…great write!

    sad about today not being one of those Fridays… brilliant poem (makes me look forward even more to future Fridays)

  22. Talon November 22, 2013 at 7:45 pm #

    I love when writers use their “lack” of creativity to prove there really isn’t such a thing. Here’s to many more fabulous Flash Fridays. Perfect 55, Nara.

    Sadly, I am totally there with that last line today.
