Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 17 Words Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 17 Poem

Week 17 words from @awenemergy: autumn, tea-cup, doorway, intelligence, contentment.

 

a fervour to trap sun's gold in fabric

my autumn bounty of linen

neatly folded and stacked

 

I fill my tea-cup with bengal spice

an allure of seductive warmth

warming fingers and throat

 

there's a doorway, still closed

leading to rest and hibernation

waiting for intelligence

 

flannelette sheets lie on the bed

beckoning contentment

an opening

Here are the words and my poem for the seventeenth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

Oh my gosh. this week was HARD. I just could not get the words to fit in one poem. In the end I kind of jammed them together. When I first read the words I was excited by the possibilities of doorways but I don't think I did them justice this time around. I do love the first three lines though so that's something!

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. If you're not on Instagram, post your finished poem in the comments below so we can all read your masterpiece. 

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll write a poem with them. Either dm me on Instagram with the words or put them in the comments box below.

Happy writing!
