Long John Gets Poe-etic

Taking up the challenge that Charley tossed out there.  It is a Quadrille – familiar territory. Having a great time with the July Challenge;  hope you are all doing the same! Y’all are a creative bunch.

The bird broke
my concentration
when he pecked
the door.

“Anatomy of Melancholy”
from my fingers fell.

Closed, it hit the floor.  

am I compelled,
anger replacing my
gloom as I cross the room
wishing I’d taught Captain Flint
to use the bell!

Collaborative Poetry Charley (Life in Portofino) / Jilly


A wild soul writing poetry & fiction while teaching high school literature, all with a camera in tow.
