Waxen Wings #atozchallenge #poetry #Icarus #photography #napowrimo

Do you (in love) fly too close to the sun only to melt in disappointment?

Catching one last flight on the Pacific before sunset

Why did you  like Icarus fly

 toward the sun

on waxen wings

of love’s ill

begotten current

**

why did you not learn

that icy love melts

fool’s promises

never last

long

***

why don’t you perch

on this strong arm

frail, battered bird

until you try at flight

again

Nautilus

This year for  A to Z challenge, I am using the Nautilus as my inspiration all month. The shell has many chambers (at least enough to fit all the letters.)  You will find poetry,  You will find some dark stuff (as I am attempting to branch into the horror genre), You will also see a smattering of short stories or prose (some with children in mind) others as lessons that we can all learn from. I look forward to  meeting you and getting to know some talented writers over this month long writing journey. Please check over at the A to Z challenge and see what they are up to; they are a fine bunch of folks.
