#FloetryByJulietKego: A Breakfast of Poems

I woke up today
with a sweet-tangy taste
of your praise-poetry
on my tongue

For breakfast, I served
woven words, crunchy
like a waffle basket
with drops of honeyed
syrup soaked in

I inhaled and released
wispy fragrances
of sweaty spent stories
that escaped our bodies
I am woke in you

#NaPoWriMo | Day 1 of 30. Prompt -Write a lune…

LUNE for NaPoWriMo by Juliet Kego

Verses by JulietKego:

Sometimes, you are a jar
of black magic
I must drink to become.



Today, I challenge you to write a lune. This is a sort of English-language haiku. While the haiku is a three-line poem with a 5-7-5 syllable count, the lune is a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count. There’s also a variant based on word-count, instead of syllable count, where the poem still has three lines, but the first line has five words, the second line has three words, and the third line has five words again. Either kind will do, and you can write a one-lune poem, or write a poem consisting of multiple stanzas of lunes. Happy writing! ~Source: NaPoWriMo.net

#POETRY Verses by JulietKego (31 to 35).



#NaPoWriMo Day 1

Verses by JulietKego (31 to 35 of 77 verses)
#31. Sometimes, you are a maze
I lose my lies inside you
And then, find my truth.

#32. Sometimes, you amaze
Like a Rembrandt painting
Found in a thrift store.

#33. Sometimes, you are a jar
Of potions of black magic
That I must drink to become.

#34. Sometimes, you’re a door ajar
Letting old secrets walk through
Speaking the answers my soul forgot.

#35. Sometimes, you are rivers of mud
That wash me dirty and then clean
When you come with the rains.

Floetry by JulietKego: (16 to 30) of 77 HAIKU & SENRYU Verses.


16. Feast

Drink of my nectar
Thundering sighs tease my thighs
Open me up. Feast!

17. Friends

A harmless button
A line in guileless wonder
A new beginning.

18. Hugs and Kisses
Gift me with a hug
Your face in my neck; inhale
My lips on bare chest.

19. Fusion

Let’s be crazy now
Soft skin to hard, hot to cold
Passion as our muse

20.Dance of passion

Darling, dare to dance?
Hypnotize me in deep trance
Pierce me with you lance.


#21. Kiss Me

My face in your hands
A quiver full of kisses
Tongue to tongue.


#22. What if?

What if you exist?
A rhetorical question.
And now, here you are!


#23. In Exhalation…

I inhale your words
And exhale epiphanies
Poetry’s oxygen.


#24. Via Dolorosa

The way of the cross
I am Veronica’s heart
Imprint your face here.


#25. Awakened

For decades I slept
They tried to bring me to life
You called my soul’s name.


#26. Lost and Found

This is the story
Of a lost pilgrim of love
Who found her way.


#27. Star-crossed 

We may never meet
Our stars may never collide
And yet we shone bright.


#28. Knock; Knock

Reality knocks
Do not answer her door yet
Hold me for a while.


#29. Dancing with gods

They will remember
That in the life of my days
I danced with a god.


#30. No Walls

You taught me this truth:
God is not in walled spaces
No walls. No locks. Here.

#15. The Climb
Lost in a plateau
We cannot climb the mountains
Love’s legs got tired.
#14. Paradox
Hot taste of your spring
The winter of your cold heart
Strangers and Lovers.
#13. RACE
We will both outrun.
The shadows of love’s sunsets
Chasing our sunrise.
Save the last verses
I will wait to hear your voice
When I’m seventy
Stirred and burnt
I felt licking flames of love
Magic and Madness
#10. Goodbye
I feel your distance
I taste your goodbye kisses
I hear hearts breaking.
#9. Falling in Fall
Burnt-Orange, Brown hues
The colours of falling leaves
Season of our love
#8. Reflections
You are my mirror
I see the promise of me
Reflected in you
#7. Letting Go
Your fingers laced hers….
Your lives meshed together.
No room for me here
#6. Unlocked
No locks on my door
A hole where my heart once was,
Nothing left to steal.
#5. If I Die in Baga
Do not bury me
Here in Baga, they kill us
And spit on our graves.
#4. Home
Delta to North-East
mothers hold their daughters down
to be raped by fathers.
#3. Thirst 
I’d have died of thirst
Then drank you; prayer potion
You brought me to life.
#2. Blown up Hearts
In their broken hearts
They found many ticking bombs
All shattered with love…
#1. Witness
I was standing there
When dusk kissed dawn in goodbye
My leaves soaked their tears.

I was standing there,

when dusk kissed dawn in goodbye.

My leaves soaked their tears.
