#OcPoWriMo Day 25 and 26 prompts: Bleeding, and abandoned

(Check out my Day 24 prompt here: https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2016/10/25/octpowrimo-day-twenty-four-prompt-fantastical/)

The surface is still and little stirs underneath the brown tinged waters

There’s baby splinters caught in my sweater

I’m so far along the clickty-clackity rail of abandon

that knuckles dyed with crimson blood isn’t close to a worthy ransom


Palette  creates a vivid word painting within a brief and lyrical poem. It is simply a short poem, using vivid imagery. This genre was specified by Viola Berg. There is no prescribed structure or rhyme. The only mandate is the poem should create a brilliant image in the reader’s mind.

The Palette is:

  • a word painting.
  • framed at the discretion of the poet.
