the still, silent ocean
by the setting sun
a catalyst for regret to stalk
through the echoing chambers
of my scrofulous heart
moonlight falls on memory
throwing dream into shadow
Here are the words and my poem for the twenty-sixth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.
I'm so excited to have made it half way through the year :o) And I've managed to write twenty-six poems. YAY! A big thank you to all the beautiful people who've collaborated and sent me words to use. It's been fun working with different words and learning new ones like scrofulous. Doesn't it sound wonderful? I was imagining a small, scruffy dog when I first read it but it turns out to mean historical!
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 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 use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).
