Today’s prompt: Write a poem about an empty house. Use the words brisk and solo.
The Place in the Woods
Along the path all wooded Beyond the solo tree a home lies still and silent no people there to see. It takes only a moment of brisk walking to go It’s worth the cold and distance to see this place you know. It stands as its been standing for years since you were young but no one seems to live there No lights or flowers hung. But love is what you feel here for love is what is gives Despite its dark and empty shell where no one seems to live.
When you arrive Place a call Wait for an answer Wait for the fall Sit down and ponder What happens next Turn off your volume Send your last text Sit for a minute Sweat it all out Waiting is torture Its what life’s about
The Cat in the Hat was somewhere brand new he didn’t know who lived there or lived there with who. He saw lots of toys and some stuff in the yard He tried to look inside, curtains made it hard.
He thought that he’d knock on the door that’s bright red Perhaps they’d know him by the hat on his head Most people did know him for what he did wear He was famous to most, though he couldn’t care.
So he walked up the walk and he stood nice and straight he walked up the steps and he closed the front gate He didn’t want pets that might live there to leave Most kids did have pets, or he’d like to believe.
When all of a sudden from up on the roof A balloon went by flying, then popped with a Poof! Down to the ground a bright paper did float He bent down to get it and saw it’s a note.
The note it was written in crayon and pen Was the writing he noticed from a little boy Ben? The note was so sweet that the Cat he did cry Ben had an old kite that the Cat used to fly.
The Cat was so happy to get back his kite He smiled so big with his teeth white and bright. So Ben lived in this house that he just stopped by And now he and Ben watch their kites blow and fly.
Above the clouds there used to be a clouded land a small city and in this land there was a man who loved his girl as much’s he can She knew his love was true but still she wanted more to suit her will she told him so and he was sad she saw him cry and she felt bad she talked to him and told him true I love you more my life is you.
