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
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!
