The water runs deep

Like turbulent emotions

They ebb and flow

Splishing and splashing

Floundering in deep water

All-consuming love

 

Forever Dreaming

Awake or asleep

I am forever dreaming

Sleepwalking through life

Not one for reality

Imagination takes over

Fear

Photo Prompt

 

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a pangram – a single sentence that contains every letter of the alphabet at least once – inspired by the theme of fear and set in the photo.

Poetry Challenge – Taking inspiration from both the theme and the photo, write an ABC / Alphabet poem – where the first letter of each line is the next letter in the alphabet (the first line begins with “A”, the second “B”, the third “C” and so on).  It is up to you how many lines you write.

Bonus point to those whose alphabet poem runs all the way from A-Z 🙂

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!

The Light and Dark of You

I see the light in your smile

And the dark in your eyes

Weaving together tales

Of love and loss

A heart that has swelled with joy

And broken with anguish

A lifetime of living

Etching experience

On the fabric of you

And if I look carefully

Study you with the attention you deserve

I’ll uncover your secrets, as

I see the light in your smile

And the dark in your eyes

Remembering this is only the beginning of your story…


Here’s my poem for this week’s Weekend Writing Challenge. I decided to have a go at the poetry challenge:

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem of no more than 15 lines about “Light and Dark”, that repeats at least two lines of the poem.
