Today’s prompt from The Daily Post is, Reach, which is what it feels like when writing unfamiliar forms of poetry. Sometimes even the familiar ones feel a bit of a reach.
I am trying to increase my comfort level with Haiku Sonnets. Bear with me.
Your deep ellipsis
our asynchronous orbits
we drifted beyond
Though out of my sight
my thoughts are always with you
I hear your laughter
When the night is still
it falls like gold confetti
delicate music
So I close my eyes
smiling as your voice tickles
some old memory
I can’t help but reach for you
though I know that you’re not there
