Perfume

A poem written by inkdrop for the daily post : Perfume

Salford (via Heraklion) , 10th May 2017

Perhaps it was her eyes that first attracted me

Everyone stopped – freeze frame as we met

Reaction to that wonderful smile – unabashed, but

From that day on, she seemed to be everywhere

Unusually, i couldnt see her around, was my

Memory playing tricks on me ?

Even the blossom’s sent a message of her

The message

Urgent
a message noted urgent

was passed through the post

to the house by a postman,

eating his toast

 

it was marked up with red ink

for addressee in the house

who was working hard at the sink

quick as a mouse

 

you’ve won a prize draw

for this house in torquay

and it’ll cost you no more

than a hundred pound fee

 

but it no fool our dear reader

having read message therein

the message found a quick way

into recycle bin!

Whisper

In response to the prompt

Whisper

Speak softly – don’t yell

for there’s a tale to tell

keep message clear – it’ll make people think

and the message might go out and make a link

 

Yelling out Stories

just gives listeners a pain

it might be important

but they wont hear it again

 

So keep calm and low

and resist thoughts to shout

and people might listen

as your message goes out.
