11 In poetry

cherry-blossom laughter falling

my real name is leoniewise
yesterday my name was plague of the bewildered poet
today my name is cherry-blossom laughter falling
tomorrow my name will be smell of freshly polished silverware
my secret name is glittering mermaid lazing in a clawfoot bath
you can call me heavy warm treacle, pollinating the air with my humming

okay, your turn…
what’s your name today?
what can i call you…?

    today you can call me fresh air breathing, walking in the glittery snow when it’s cold but I’m loving it, earth loving girl.

    last year you would have called me scattered showers, chances of thunderstorms, and heavy rain
    this year you can call me blue skies and sunshine, flowers with brightly coloured birds and laughter, looking for clearings of artistry to work my mystical magic with a brush!
    Tomorrow? the dream is developing…
    inspired by my youngest sister – (didn’t know I could create so spontaneously with words)

    Most days, you can call me honey bee. In my dark hours, you can call me wrecking ball, shattered glass, or the Invisible Woman.

    I call you poet in your bones.
