Alphabe-Thursday: P is for It's Personal

Princess ponders her pea
such a puny, plucky thing
purchasing prestige through pain
procuring royal ring

Parson preaches from pulpit
pleas with piety
praying, pardoning, purging

Paramour provokes passion,
pleasure in lover’s embrace
promising perpetual affection
time pauses, hearts race

Pen belongs to poet
painting portraits with words
in polished, pleasing phrases
perceptively pondered

People, perhaps, are prey to "P"
personal, private and yet
P's pervasive,penetrating push
pierces psyche’s net

Wow. What a perfect P post from Miss Polly for Alphabe-Thursday this week.

I had to read this several times (OK, and I had to look up a word, but I'm not saying which one - so there!)

You are really amazing at this.

You are definitely all kinds of smart in the vocab department.

Thank you for linking.
