three word wednesday: jolt, ribbon zeal
photo: Pink mirrorphr4nq, flickr

beautiful pink ribbon
fluttering free finds retreat
in the wind of a moored mirror
noticed now neglected
gathering interest

roving wondering eyes
forage forgotten faces
countless curled photos
meaningful worth unchanged

their smiling zeal
declares gazing mute
simple surrounded silence

basking in reflection
a sudden jolt brings back
the beginning journey
restless beating heart
packs another box

placing life’s pages
careful not to tear
bind too tight the string

wrinkled waters splashing
kindles one life resting
another disturbing the drift



SundayScribblings promp: the date
photo: grrrtharobot, photobucket

the date.1…
never giving up
the perpetual dater
looked in the mirror
searching the reasons
for the endless tide
of suitors and
little satisfaction

 the date.2…
enduring in
silence and calm
he moved quietly
among the
darkness of life

humble in hand
strength in mind
pressing forward
determined in will
his life blossomed internally
