My very quick offerings for this week’s "15 Words or Less" challenge at Laura’s blogging spot. You can tell when I’m in a mood, I’m in a mood. Time is the only thing keeping me from writing a thousand of these ;).
And elements beyond control
Eyes set Godward
bared to all
stripped to nothing
Phoenix risen from the ashes
Life renewed, season’s flashes.
That is REALLY good!
The photo reflects how I feel this morning: weather-induced morose, essentially. The lovely poetry that follows forces me to focus instead on the beauty that’s apparent if only we take the time to look for it.
I did some interviews yesterday (Nortel’s continuing death spiral) and at one point I remember saying something about the need to look hard through the dark clouds because there is indeed a silver lining there. I’m glad you posted this today, as your timing is, as always, on the money.
Wow, Robin! You are REALLY good at this! I tried to come up with something for the traffic light photo last week, but…nothing. Must be writer’s block 🙁
Robin, just wanted to say thanks for turning me onto poetry again. It was through your blog that I found Laura’s 15 Word challenge and of course your PPL is great. I am sure I will struggle for awhile trying to just let go but I’m finding it fun.
I enjoy your writing and your poetry. I’ve got to give the PPL another try. I just have to work through the hesitation.
Oh you are SO good I love the last one.
It might be a quick offering but it still pretty good and the photo fits perfectly.
You are a great poet Robin!
I love this, Robin. Your tree is very inspiring and courageous. This is a very motivating poem!
