Many thanks to Linda G. Hill for the one-liner Wednesday and other prompts each week!
“No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other’s worth.”
— Robert Southey
I have been reading a cute little book containing quotations and short poems about friendship, and this was one of my favorite lines in the whole book. How blessed is anyone who has a friend like that! I have at least one.
Once again, I am taking part in Linda G. Hill’s coloring club! This month so far, I have colored 3 or 4 pictures, and we are only halfway through the month. Below is my favorite picture from the past 2 weeks.
This is my (late) offering for the Sunday Muse, which I often attempt to write for but which I’ve only posted for once or twice. This week’s image is below:
Monarch butterflies symbolize rebirth:
Kings seeking asylum from
The insanity of Earth,
Refugees to the Moon.
I pray, and kneel, arms
Strong in God’s holy refuge:
Maybe Luna can welcome me too,
I’d be the butterflies’ subject.
This is for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club. No poem with it this time. 🙂 I’ve written a little bit today but nothing that I want to share.
Enjoy this adorable picture!
This poem is inspired by FFFC #70, the image below:
They are gazing outside the train,
Outside the windowed metal bubble;

But there remains a world outside
Inner fear might be decrying —
Fight it, flee fear, and cease to hide.
A short cinquain for JusJoJan day 26, which I wasn’t going to post, but here you go!

A few days ago, I colored in another coloring page and decided to share it with Linda’s coloring club. I used some new markers, so they were not scraggly at all. 🙂
It has taken me so long to try to come up with a one-liner for One-Liner Wednesday that I eventually had to tell myself to “Just Jot It!”
Hmm…does that sentence count as a one-liner?
By the way, I hope that this year is blessed for you!

I colored this today and accidentally got a smudge on the paper, but I do like how it turned out. It was also nice to enjoy chai tea while coloring (it was not just for the photo!). I hope your “cup runneth over” with blessings and companionship this season. Merry Christmas!
I wrote a few sidlak poems over the past few days. This form, which has 4 lines of 3-5-7-9 syllables and concludes with a fifth line that is a color, has been fun. I found out about it from Abigail Gronway, who also wrote a nice one. Shared with the Tuesday Platform.
In a library,
On antique, sturdy table —
I sense the musty smell of old books
Proper meter? Rhyme?
Freedom in form anytime.
Word queen of my poetry world, hued
Oppressing like a devil,
A cardboard box, sent, undelivered:
