APRIL 3, 2015 CHARM FOR A BROKEN HEART

THE PROMPT:  (as always, optional) prompt. In keeping with today’s status as the third day of NaPoWriMo, I challenge you to write a charm – a simple rhyming poem, in the style of a recipe-slash-nursery rhyme. It could be a charm against warts, or against traffic tickets. It could be a charm to bring love, or to bring free pizzas from your local radio station.

Charm for a Broken Heart

Gather the blink of a white tiger’s eye,

The brush of a midnight breeze,

The wag of an old dog’s tail,

The dive of a red hawk,

The tear of a crone,

Steep for fourteen moons

And swallow.

I write. I read. I write and read...I listen to raindrops on begonias, talk to ravens, dance with dragons. I practice Tai Chi in a barn, I sleep with earth stones and tarot cards. I celebrate each day. Join me!
