For Fandango’s Flashback Friday, I have a poem from June 17th, 2019 (still exploring that particular poetry notebook). It turns out that this was a Quadrille, a 44-word poem, so I might have posted it the day it was written. if it was a response to a DVerse Quadrille Monday. Also linking to FOWC: Possible.
Shall I fret if the future is in mist?
Is the path happy even without seeing?
Can someone guide, grasping gently my wrist,
Pulling me forward, when I am hesitating?
Shall the guide leave, possibly as a surprise?
Is there mist in my eyes?
I’m not fine
I am never fine,
Dare to peer in this brain of
Look at me,
Does anyone care,
Beyond a few words and one
Going nowhere while
Brain runs off a cliff or it
Good time to reprise this photo
My thought process before this: “Okay, I finally finished that happy poem from last week. Let’s let out the other stuff.” MVB: Shock. FOWC: Anybody (close enough?). Then I started writing and realized I could make it into a Quadrille for DVerse; the week’s word is “static.” I’m not linking this up with it but figured I’d give credit for the inspiration. 🙂 At least I’ve written more now!!
We are writing salty Quadrilles at DVerse today, hosted by WhimsyGizmo. Mine is also a sevenling. I wrote a draft in my notebook and then typed it into a Word document to play around with getting it to have exactly 44 words. It’s been difficult to write anything today, but writing is an indelible part of me, so… here you go.
There is much one could write about:
The salty irresistibility of snacks like
Pretzels, popcorn (forget movies), chips Continue reading →
They crowned Him
To mock Him,
Could block Him
From extending grace to that crowd.
The Most High
Was never proud,
And never called angels
To take pain away:
He underwent suffering
As an act of loving,
Rose on the third day.
Life is not fair,
It takes a lot of grit
To get through it,
But not every moment is lived
With gritted teeth:
Certain moments I know
Joy and happiness,
Blessed to acknowledge my blessedness,
Life is not fair
And how wonderful that is!
