It’s day 16 of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, 2020! What’s the challenge you ask?
“…to write a poem of over-the-top compliments. Pick a person, place, or thing you love, and praise it in the most effusive way you can. Go for broke with metaphors, similes, and more‘.
Like Mercury Colliding by Michael Doyle Like a goddess on high She's the sun in my sky The tears I'm dared to cry And all the wonder in my why She's my angel divine The reasons to love that are mine She's the one for whom I've waited So desperately I am fated Like mercury colliding She's source of my priding And maybe it's coinciding That she'll always be the one I'm riding Who I'm speaking of, of course Is my Andalusian horse Who takes me to the stars Far away from noise and cars Bringing me to the top of the world Straight up with toes curled She's the dream of my dreams And in my coffee, she's my cream Wordlessly wiser than wise Speaking volumes with her eyes Filling all my days with plenty Without her, I'd be empty She's the glam in my glamor The way she moves makes me stammer Stage struck with a sledge hammer Hitting me like spam from a spammer I am daily caressed by desire Lit up fully as though on fire Of her, I know I'll never tire When it comes down to the wire Who I'm speaking of, of course, Is my Andalusian horse Who takes me to the stars Far away from noise and cars Bringing me to the top of the world Straight up with toes curled She's the dream of my dreams And in my coffee, she's my cream (c) April 16, 2020 Michael Doyle All Rights Reserved
