The Awakening (OctPoWriMo)

 Inspired by this music video (hit mute then feel it) or don't
because the music is too good to miss!
linking to OctPoWriMo

Seeking half-smiled approval, he relents
And wakens a dream in her innocence

The wide-eyed friendship of childish ways
Plants stars in the blue of love’s student-gaze

Age-old Newness bewilders gravity
Surprising the heart with Discovery

…and as it has been since Time began
Boy learns to shoulder the call of a man

© Janet Martin

also inspired by this day:)

 Let's Dance

A gold cello stirs
Dawn's cobalt deep
Unfolding dreamers
From cotton-clad sleep

It rends
Time’s ageless Overpass
With liquid notes
of broken glass 

Earth's vestibule
Of trees and streets
Unfurls a ballroom
Beneath feet

© Janet Martin

...and one more, just because it's fun:)

Crepe coverlets
cradle rainbows
before the bloom
breaks free

Your glance
grazes my skin
and wakens
the woman
in me~ 


  1. I couldn't bring myself to mute a Piano Guys music video—and I am so glad I didn't because I haven't seen this one before and it is so so beautiful. Your poem captured the heart of the story and gave it words. Wonderfully done.

  2. Love all of them. I love this, especially:
    "half-smiled approval"

  3. I love them all. What a nice ride this was from top to bottom!

    My link is on the prompt page.

  4. Archaic magic!..All 3 poems are brilliant :)

  5. A lovely post and loved your work here ... thanks so much for sharing (and you're right that music is fantastic - not to be missed)! Bastet


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
