We called them icicles and hung them on the tree Silver threads of shiny tinsel came in plastic packs of three An accent for colorful lights and balls making any Christmas tree sparkle Even Charlie Brown’s sad tree needed some silver tinsel on it Today at d’Verse, Mish asked us to write a 44 word … Continue reading Tinsel


Allow all my wordsto pour like strong rain,choke on my tears,swallow the pain. Anguish and sorrowshide deeply inside,nowhere to run,no place to hide. A huge painted smile,pretend feels okay.Sun covered clouds,lights fill the grays. Loud echoing cry,releases the fake,speak what I feel,my turn to take. As all words spill out,each one becomes real.Clear blurry lines,no … Continue reading Unload

കഴുകനെ ആക്രമിക്കാൻ ധൈര്യപ്പെടുന്ന ഒരേയൊരു പക്ഷി

കഴുകനെ ആക്രമിക്കാൻ ധൈര്യപ്പെടുന്ന ഒരേയൊരു പക്ഷി

“കഴുകനെ ആക്രമിക്കാൻ ധൈര്യപ്പെടുന്ന ഒരേയൊരു പക്ഷി കറുത്ത ഡ്രോംഗോ മാത്രമാണ്. അത് കഴുകന്റെ പുറകിലിരുന്ന് കഴുത്തിൽ കടിക്കുന്നു.എന്നിരുന്നാലും, കഴുകൻ പ്രതികരിക്കുകയോ ഡ്രോംഗോയുമായി യുദ്ധം ചെയ്യുകയോ ഇല്ല.ഡ്രോംഗോയ്‌ക്കൊപ്പം സമയവും ഊർജ്ജവും കളയില്ല. അത് ചിറകുകൾ തുറന്ന് ആകാശത്ത് ഉയരത്തിൽ പറക്കാൻ തുടങ്ങുന്നു. ഉയരത്തിൽ , ഡ്രാങ്കോയ്ക്ക് ശ്വസിക്കാൻ ബുദ്ധിമുട്ടാണ്, ഓക്സിജന്റെ അഭാവം മൂലം ഡ്രോംഗോ ഒടുവിൽ വീഴുന്നു. എല്ലാ യുദ്ധങ്ങളും നിങ്ങൾ പ്രതികരിക്കേണ്ടതില്ല. എല്ലാ വാദങ്ങൾക്കും വിമർശകർക്കും നിങ്ങൾ പ്രതികരിക്കാനോ മറുപടി നൽകാനോ ആവശ്യമില്ല.Choose your battle wisely … Continue reading കഴുകനെ ആക്രമിക്കാൻ ധൈര്യപ്പെടുന്ന ഒരേയൊരു പക്ഷി

One Sweet Day

Tricia Sankey

Photo by Hernan Pauccara on

Sunbeams tickle the deep
and a whole new world
erupts in vivid color

One sweet day
we’ll pass through
shimmering sky
casting off

dark shadows
and lonely soliloquy –

we’ll soar above
saltwater memories
and float on waves
of endless light.

Today, Lillian hosts at dVerse,and asks us to include a title from a song or two in our poems. We can select the songs from #1 hits on our birthday by clicking on this Birthday Hitswebsite.I picked, “A Whole New World” by Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle and “One Sweet Day” by Mariah Carey.

I am also writing this poem as a tribute to my mother-in-law, Linda Sankey, who passed recently from Covid-19. We will all be together again one sweet day! 💓

Do I need a title?

Tricia Sankey

A stranger instructs
three breaths, and as clarity climbs
with barely a beat, I’m gone

out of body
in the mists

Is time a song on repeat?

For 30 minutes I float
in riddles

Who am I?
I cannot fathom

a hidden chorus
knows only
what it’s not

It’s Open Link Night atdVerse, so I’m expanding a little on a twitter poem I published recently. I love clearing my mind with singing bowls and hope you enjoy the link!

The Night Wore Heels

Tricia Sankey

The night wore heels,
a happy dance of leaves
reveling on warm winds,
we ignored the morse code
of constellations far away,
predicting mourning in the morn,
their silly plots to trap the sun,
never arise,
you’ll see…

the dawn forever breaks free.
