Options

Source

Google compass -
girl, you’re lucky

Old wives’ tales, mothers’ threats
two pages reproduction biology
google in my time

Be careful, girl
options at school
biology, chemistry
geography, history
safe, dangerous
depend on your handling
how far you travel
compass, knowledge
muddy waters
sticky dunes

Check the weather
    as you rise
  ask questions
   save answers
Google is your friend

Falling victim to bad geography
mesmerising chemistry
brainwash history
naughty biology -
preserve of fools

Google is no fool
neither are you

Ripening

Nine months you wait
praise scold
I travel cold
earth yearning a year

what manner, child?
I wail in silence
lament with sealed lips
burn incense

Auld Lang Syne
still here
ripening
mother and child to be

Hi all! Hope you're in good spirits or working on it :) I will not be participating in NaPoWriMo this year as I'm preoccupied with other things. All the best to those participating.

Tyred

search for moisture
nurture, ears of corn
defiant slope
threatening to erode
unmanned tyre rolling down
blind to yellow, red lines
this voice on non heed, full speed
crooked, warped lines
jagged edges on the precipice
tools behind bars
who will take it?
set bail and sail -
land on a beacon
