NaPoWriMo 2018 – 2 -Belladonna

Standard

Clothed in black and purple

She waits in the quiet places.

Beguiling and tempting –

Putting on the glamour.

Deep, dark eyes shining

With a hint of menace and madness

She holds the life thread

Between her elegant fingers.

Twisting it this way and that and

Now you see her shears.

Snip!

NaPoWriMo 2018 – 1 – Oh Diana!

Standard

miracle of nature.

do not think of moving

toothed leaves snap tightly

when triggered by prey

 

workings are complex

dependent on changes

of cells in the hinge

which are tapped more than once

 

snap close to trap it,

flaps close to squash it,

enzymes secreted

to digest your meal

 

opening slowly

waiting in silence

for more fools to dance

in your wide open mouth
