Together, or: Moments

My first villanelle

Together we, she, holding my finger
Little, growing hand, everything to me
Moments ever, and forever linger

Abba'chka, I, to the preschool bring her
Come afternoon, she'll be returned to me
Together we, she, holding my finger

She, annoyed by childish tunes I sing her
Teasing her thus brings such delight to me
Moments ever, and forever linger

Don't joke! She, hates on my witty zinger
Of late, she's sure been talking back to me
Together we, she, holding my finger

Mamachka? She, hears my cellphone ringer
She, reciting grocery list to me
Moments ever, and forever linger

I love you! Asserts my little clinger
Her love, our love, God's precious gift to me
Together we, she, holding my finger
Moments ever, and forever linger

d’Verse is taking a break for the holidays so there won’t be any prompts for a while…

So I’ll be trying out a few new forms with prompts born of my mind instead!

I considered the idea of responding to prompts from other groups, but d’Verse satisfies my creative curiosity more than well enough – and I don’t want to spend all of my time responding to poetry prompts.
