Poets United: Poetry Pantry #318
Time goes mute when bee of memory
shines its light on tapestry of past. Becomes
a veil of sepia stain, like the cuttlefish that
doesn’t threaten but stuns precise prey
with its venom. Ignorant victim is lost
in sparkle of one moment. Flake of time
that might never have happened.
Theme of lost love freezes feet, turning
them to dirt-colored bricks. Shapely tricks
that sour milk and impede any movement.
Splayed fingers play with page from diary.
Just another bird on the wire, she watches
as her carriage, once again, becomes
a hollowed out pumpkin.

Notes: Did use all of the words. Had to look up cuttlefish and found some interesting information. It is considered the most intelligent of its kind, and does release a sepia like die that paralyses its victim. Some of the words were a bit of a reach, but I choose to call that poetic license.
