dialogue of the tides

I’m doing NaPoWriMo as per this compelling contest, which is an exercise in brevity and minimal poetry, something I adore and want to improve at – micropoetry (two words), senryu (three words), and haiku. I’ve decided to go on a sea theme and see what happens; I’ll update this everyday. The (#) are the dates. I’ve no idea if they’ll still be there at the end of it, or even in order. Title may be subject to change.

Hey – I’m done!

dialogue of the tides

(1)
the tumult,
water

(2)
somewhat steadfast

(3)
in seashells, expanses.

(4)
ruthlessly, home.

(5)
oceans underfoot – everywhere.

(6)
architect of thirst

(7)
softest,
oldest
endurance

(8)
windblown light, steeped.

(9)
seabed:
eroded engines.

(10)
savage – albatross –

(11)
crag of solace

(12)
looking glass– jungle.

(13)
perpetually
unearthed.
restless

(14)
rust, aglow

(15)
contrary,
sanctuary– ?

(16)
beloved unkempt unknown

(17)
no pearl: oyster?

(18)
artless deep

(19)
whales, stones –
trembling.

(20)
seeking, you exist.

(21)
renegade harbour

(22)
persistence:
abandoned always

(23)
not cellar;
spaceship

(24)
being –
birds. embers.

(25)
ceaseless ease

(26)
tongue of travellers

(27)
eschew always

(28)
rushing. relentless

(29)
voyage!
lighthouse optional.

(30)
soloist: lucid babel.
