The Writer Diaries - Micropoetry, December 2016

January may have rung in, bringing 2017 with it, but I'm sure I won't be alone in having 2016 business outstanding.

So, to that end, let's get one piece of that business done and dusted, shall we?

This is all the micropoetry I wrote in December. I've grouped the poems for the 9th and 12th together because they're sort of... companion poems.

Hope you like it!


1st December
bee and strawberry
I remember
That she said to me
I'm a worker bee,
but the taste
is not so sweet,
as it should be.'


9th December

diamondA silent agreement
That we would give our hearts to each other
but each keep our own.
I knew & you knew.
We knew we'd never speak of it

12th December

We danced in serious nonsense
Words of Narnia & diamond smuggling
They thought we were fools
& we knew that our game was reality's mask


15th December

crow in tree

There was a murmur,
A rustle in the secret-keeping trees,
And our open secret turned out to be the tragic truth.
Your death killed her.


29th December

city Red Riding HoodWhen we grew up
We learned
That the woods are full of big bad wolves
And we must defend Red Riding Hood
With sticks and stones


31st December

thanks written in scrabble tilesTo you
You incredible people,
Who made me feel worth something
Who made me smile
Who inspired me & kept me going
Happy New Year

    1. Thank you! Those two are kind of personal, so I'm glad you liked it :)

    1. Thank you! That one was sort of a spur-of-the-moment thing, so I'm glad you liked it! :)

  4. I don't think I've read your poetry before! These are wonderful, Cee Arr.<3

  5. I always like when you add in allusions to other things, like Red Riding Hood and also Narnia in the case of these poems. And some of these have some really nice meanings to them as well. I love how you can have so much depth in only a few words!
