j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

NaPoWriMo #12: Amicable

A gentle conversation
tender words
soft tone of your voice
pierces a depth in my soul
I was afraid anyone could reach
to hear you means so much
whimsical delight
I’ve needed this for a while
whether or not laughing settles in
I can’t think clearly
I can’t feel honestly
I scream at my depths
The empty parts
I trust you to
gently prod then wait
for me to fill
being amiable
I’m scared
you haunted me
you nurture me
take me away from my mundane world
If only for a little while.


Notes: amicable implies being well disposed; amiable is acting well disposed and amiable is commonly applied only to people - though sometimes it is used for occasions, while amicable is not applied to people at all but to human interactions and their outcomes; amiable first meant 'kind' or 'lovely, lovable' and amicable first applied to things and meant 'pleasant, benign'

This explanation of these words inspired me in writing this poem.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
