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

Brave Men Don’t Slay Dragons – a Quadrille

affairs of dragons

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?)

The warrior drew his sword
advancing on the beast
a child blocked his path
not frightened in the least
The warrior laid his weapons down and
said with open hands resting beside him
“Brave men don’t slay dragons child
brave men … ride them.”

word count 44

Inspired by Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series

Charles de Lint

For One Liner Wednesday – OK, I know it’s more than one line, but it’s such a cool quote!

Spoonie Sunday – Life Tools – Escapist Coloring

3.23.19 spoon sun 1 (2)

I’m spending some time examining the concept of a life tool box, as outlined by Chris of Cee-chris.com 

This week has been a bit “off” for me. I had minor surgery and, while certainly not serious, required general anesthesia which is always hard on my system. I’m recovering just fine thanks, so this week has been a lot about ‘taking it easy’. Continue reading “Spoonie Sunday – Life Tools – Escapist Coloring”
