Flashback Friday — A Spiky Situation

A thorn bush in Pahrump, NV

For Fandango’s Flashback Friday — a little trip down memory lane. The idea is to repost something you wrote on this date, a previous year. It is really interesting to see how my writing has changed in the past few years. Now, I don’t always post daily so there were years when this date passed with out blog note. This is a little piece from March 11, 2019. Today also happens to be my “anniversary” of sorts. On March 11, 2007 we pulled our RV out of the driveway and became gypsies and wanderers. For your further elucidation

My first ever quadrille for dversepoets Quadrille #75: Spike up a Poem

A Spiky Situation

Tender stalks protected
by thorns like iron spikes
ready to impale
the unwary traveler who
drawn to the allure
of bright blossoms
pricks a finger

We curse the flower
for it’s thorns
rather than rejoice
that the thorn bush
gives us such ardent blooms

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
