NaPoWriMo Day 24: Halycon Days

She sits, recollects
The halycon days
The sun dazzled her eyes
Flurries of leaves flew by

As she sat on the swing
She heard the bombinating bees
And the mellifluous song
Of the frolicsome Koel

The salubrious breeze
Ran through her hair
As the sky transmogrified
Into a tincture of red

And when the sun
Settled into crepescule
The sea turned into
A coruscating mirror of colors

When her heart is shrouded
By the tenebrosity of the days
She sits, recollects
The halycon days


Prompt: Today I challenge you to write a “mix-and-match” poem in which you mingle fancy vocabulary, overly poetic words, with distinctly un-fancy words. Hopefully you’ll end up with a poem that makes the everyday seem poetic, and which keeps your poetic language grounded. Happy writing!
