NaPoWriMo 2018: Day 6

Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two. You might break to emphasize (or de-emphasize) sounds or rhymes, or to create a moment of hesitation in the middle of a thought.

Here is my contribution:

Postcard Summer

This was the summer
of jelly fish,
clear as crystal;
and of newborn love
too premature
to succeed existence.
But that never kept us
from flying kites
across magenta-pink,
late-evening skies,
nor touching toes
beneath bright umbrellas,
clouds sagging beneath
an early moon, egg white,
and my heart,
or whatever it was back then,
beating in tandem
with the drum-song
of the sea, waves
touching me with their
cool fingers, then receding.
