Hello Love- Prompt Two- Half Marathon Poem By Ingrid Exner Aug 2016

Hello Love- Poem 2 by Ingrid

 

Hello Love…

Are you listening,

to my tender words

which seem to

be crytaling?

Falling fast

Against your door

I stand beside you

Wanting more.

 

Hello Love…

Are you listening?

I forgot where we were.

Confused by

growing anger

now, what is

the cure?

 

Hello My Love,

Are you listening

Can you hear my heart beat

quickening?

Its rhythm jumps

with your

desire

Only You

can Inspire.

 

Hello Sweet Love,

Are you listening?

You alone can

tame my soul

gentle words

loving glances

lingering gestures

second chances.

 

Hello Love,

Let’s bathe in this,

Summer Light!

Your warming

breezes that

whisper words

of love

tonight.

 

Hello My Love,

Let this feeling

of love

wrap itself

around you.

Let my words soothe

and

bring peace

to you.

 

Hello My Love

Now you are

listening.

And,

new beginnings

are christening.

 

Poem#1-Half Marathon “The End is Just a New Beginning” by Ingrid Exner

Poetry Prompt 1- Aug 13, 2016-Poetry Half Marathon by Ingrid Exner

 

Oranges and yellows

spray across

the sky

Seagulls and Ospreys

let out a mournful cry.

 

The sun begins to

drop

burning

yellow and amber

as it slows.

Rest comes to the daylight

even Nature

now knows.

 

But after,

several darkened hours,

As the Sun rests

through the night

It will awaken and,

once again,

Shed

Oarry Sound Trees and Sunsetits

Brilliant

Light.

What Is A Name and Introduction to 2016 Poetry Marathon

My name is Ingrid Exner and I have had the privilege to have done a poetry marathon back in 2014. This is a great opportunity to meet and share poetry with people from all over the world. I have been writing free verse and other forms of poetry off and on since I was a teenager. I went to school for professional writing and worked several years in technical, professional writing and social services. I look forward to creating poetry and offering good constructive feedback any way I can! Now, on to a short poem…giving myself only minutes as this is just a precursor challenge to the real challenge of the marathon. My name is that of a warrior and my choice is warrior queen…dictating rhyming couplets…the best you’ve ever seen. Alliterating beginnings, assonancing (sp?) mid through, my syntax skills will yet, bedazzle you! I can’t wait to “meet” you all in August! Happy writing!

Poem 12- Moving Forward- Poetry Half Marathon by Ingrid

Moving forward with great glee

Moving forward…follow me.

Moving forward…1. 2. 3

 

Moving forward…with certain doubt

Moving forward…now what is that about?

 

Moving forward and making change…

Moving forward can feel quite strange.

 

Leaving the other comfortable me

Broadening my horizons so that I can see.

 

A better version of me.

Poem 9- Poetry Half Marathon 2015.

 

Random Thoughts……

 

My fingers fly over the keyboard. I hear the sing song of the sparrow, one of my songbirds in the background. The songbirds are more hushed today.The weather is warm…the sun is climbing the sky and casting down bright light and bathing us in brilliant light. Summer is here-at last.

Whitestone Lake- Poem #7 Using Prompt #7- Poetry Half Marathon

Stars twinkle shut.

Red and pinks shoot across the darkened sky.

Morning awakes.

 

The baritone bellow of the bull frog

breaks the morning silence.

Gently waves roll onto shore.

Morning awakes.

 

A warm wind passes through the bull rushes

and they shake a morning greeting.

Morning awakes.

 

Reds, pinks and now blues accent the sky.

Billowy clouds hang low and smile a welcome

To the new day.

Morning is here.
