Fading Away – a Twittering Tale

Can you see me? Am I ghost to your eyes? I gave so much but kept nothing for myself and now I’m lost like a grieving child, unloved, unspoken. My heart and soul tissue paper thin like tattered confetti fluttering in a breeze. Bit by bit, I feel myself fading away. Can you see me?

The Future – Found Poetry

Future

Drifting paper thin
scream no one to hear
spark the night fire
baby burst, don’t feel
replace the future hurricane
rainbow doors are closed
leave ’em brighter through the fire

Found Poetry from the song Firework

Xiamen Wonder – a Which Way Challenge

6.11.9 WWC sidewalk Xiamen

A sidewalk in Xiamen, China at dusk in the fall, a wonder of beauty and calm

If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again
The rainbow’s end

How to Live a Magic Life – a Wordle

Life can be messy, so have the courage to be vulnerable.
Let your soul talk and listen to the stories of struggle and success.
Remember to live and not merely exist.
Lean on your friends sometimes.
Go out of your way to be kind.
Let this be you mantra:
“Those who do not believe in magic will never find it.”

Frank – a Crimson Creative Challenge

CCC 6.5.19

Frank – a Crimson Creative Challenge

He stood at the top of a small rise. Strong and fearsome, he surveyed his domain. The unmown meadow of alfalfa spread out before him. Cattle grazed lazily in the summer sun as he watched over them with his fierce eyes focused. There, by the fence, … INTRUDERS. Frank lunged forward, his deep treads digging furrows in the soft soil. “FACE MY WRATH,” Frank bellowed, throwing great clods of dirt and grass up behind him.

Down the meadow among the lazy cows, Mater shouted back to Lightning, “Don’t let Frank catch ya,” as he sped away from the roaring tractor.

Mighty Rufous – a Quadrille

I couldn’t resist a revisit to the dragon quadrille post, it’s all just so much fun, so for your consideration, another mighty tiny poem

for Quadrille Monday on dVerse Poets

Just pen us a poem of precisely 44 words, not counting the title, and using some form of the word dragon. Then drag your cursor on over to visit some of the fieriest poets on the ’net. And as the week drags on, we’re not done yet! The Quadrille prompt is up all week, and multiple posts (perhaps two-headed beasties?) are welcome. And hey, drop us a hello in the comments below. Maybe let me know who’s your favorite dragon? (Game of Thrones? Tolkien? Rowling? Or maybe Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon?)

Mighty Rufous

a tiny scarlet hummingbird
as fierce as any dragon
drinking sweet nectar
from a trumpet flower flagon
it flitters to and fro
wings just a blur to see
passing beauty, fragile joy
a dream of what might be
for all who would fly free
