Thursday photo prompt: Dream #writephoto

I dream to see a dream, It is the place unseen, It is the time that has never been, It is an endless quest, Leading to faraway horizons.

I walk fearless and brave, For nothing can shackle my pace.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Dream #writephoto

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 180, #Poet’sChoice

I have written an Etheree on Dreams. Spin, New Dreams, Twine phantasms, Tendrils of hope, Iridescent hued, An ivory tower, An arcadian world glows, No longer an idyllic lair, But my eyes yearn to drink it all in, A variegated kaleidoscope.

A Haze

A dark haze, Clouds of vicious smoke, Spiralling, Waltzing to an ominous tango, Clawing its fangs deep down, Scavenging into a tormented soul. The mystic soul, Lost, Bewildered, Hurt, It wails. Seeking solace, Searching for a beacon bright, That would lighten up , Those dreary paths. Fallen into a dark abyss, It trudges along wearily,… Continue reading A Haze

Thursday photo prompt: Otherworldly #writephoto

Life, A cobbled clutter, Lost in its maze, You stumble and fall, Sharp edges grazing your soul. But, A brave heart, You trudge along, Till you find new openings, A stony orifice of hope, Unveiling a new kaleidoscope, Of places unseen, Of places not been, An enigma beyond the stars, An endless quest of desires… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Otherworldly #writephoto
