NaPoWriMo # 25

This is the second poem that I started intending to write a cinquin (5 lines of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 syllables). Instead, as in another poem I wrote for NaPoWriMo, it ended up being 7 lines of 2, 4, 6, 8, 6, 4, 2 syllables. I don’t know if that has a name, or if I just invented my own form.

a call
text or email
would prevent the worry
stem the emotional ping pong
should I call hospitals
or change the locks
tell me

NaPoWriMo # 17

sweet scent of grain
hay bales making me sneeze
the smell of leather hangs heavy
aromatic odors
stir memories
of home
