Today’s prompt: Pick a month (any month), make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.
The month of drizzly mornings
With rain cold like the song
That I listen to for comfort
As the pitch-black nights set in.
The month of exploding skies
Where vibrant wheels whizz and bang,
Lighting the dark with colourful trails,
As panicked pets run and hide.
The month of solemn remembrance
With two silent minutes set aside
To honour those fallen heroes
Whom now rest in sodden ground.
The month to stop and reflect
On the year’s fleeting remains,
It is but a short resting point
Before festive chaos yet to come.
