#poetryprompt Day 2 “Pillow Face”

The Stationer

 

Not gunna lie! These words created something a bit creepy folks. It could also be partly the terrible wind storm they keep calling for on the news. It was a beautiful sunny day here today, so, I hope they are wrong!

 

Let me know what you come up with.

 

Topic: A Dream About

Inspiration Words: After, Mouthing, Slimyday 2

 

Pillow Face (1)

How can you sleep? / the wind is fearsome / scratching at the windows with wet / fingernails leaving / trails like after snails on the glass / thunder mouthing its dark warnings to the hills/ slimy-green in lightning flashes / Wake up / your pillow face and look death / in the eye / whose demon clouds are rolling / closer to your bed.

  1. I feel like that most mornings when I know I have to go to work! Looking death in the eye is looking at all of my 4 and 5 year olds 😉 #Ilovethispoem #Ilovemyjob
