Join the party at Rajani’s with your own micro poem in the comments section or using Mister Linky. There are no rules – whatever the muse whispers!
Today is free verse. We are to keep it down to whatever size is appropriate for “micro-poetry”. I’m trying the Quadrille (44 words) again. 🙂
you said you were leaving
I thought the winds passed through your mouth
as you spoke
carrying words away in emptiness of space
I heard only the echo
but echoes reverberate to haunt
now I’m left with traces of your smell
and diminishing whispers

That void is so poignant and palpable here: “but echoes reverberate to haunt”. Great lines, Celestine.
