For NaPoWriMo poetry prompt 9: Day 9
meaning, hurl, rattle, listener, pluck
taut, clenched, music, tender, unique
lose their meaning as they hurl
past, like debris on roadside, leaves
under trees, snow piled in winter,
and early morning fog.
Some rattle with rough sharp
edges of wish to forget, while
listener flips through snapshot
memories in cardboard boxes.
Pluck emotions from thinned air
taut with clenched lips hiding
wishes for might have been
music once tender with unique
meaning. So many days,
so much time to remember.
