whither the Wind

About
butterflies
catching dreams,
enveloping friends,
gloaming heavenward
in just knowing--
love may never
only pine quickly--
rather,
staying tucked
under verdant winds,
xanthous--
your zephyr.

For 1 to 30, A to Z, the last Real Toads prompt for National Poetry Writing Month. This is poem number thirty! Raise a cheer! (Or a Z!)

  1. Huzzah!! Callooh! Callay!

    You made it and finished off with a fine flourish, Marian. Thanks for being an inspiration to me - I may not have tried to do this crazy 30 poems in 30 days thing without your enthusiasm.

  5. Such beauty and flow through this alphabet piece. Thanks for the challenge. I never thought of writing an alphabet poem before. Mine is more of a scrabble piece though. lol

  12. "xanthous--/your zephyr," one of the best endings I've read in this series of all things Toadish. Happy endings to NaPoWriMo, and I plan to stick around.

    THe A-Z challege was quite apropos, no? Alpha and Omega to April's Poem A Day. This was an excellent prompt, and timely. Peace, Amy

  15. Goodness me! Now I have to rush for my dictionary - Xanthus? Sheesh! Glad you enjoyed my Rosie Smith evening madness on Toads; sorry for the first 'Too' word typo, and for not being brave enough to make 'quote' into 'quoth', which is what Jinksy liked best. Zounds! lol
