Rise

Roth Poetry

EER_0592

Red Maple seed floats merrily on wings;
hoping to find a place from which to rise.
Landing between the crack of a rock;
with little soil, and almost no chance of survival;
it puts down a root;
forever changing the future of that rock!

Quadrille Monday, and Merril, at d’Verse, asked us to use some form of the word rise. I decided to put a little different Spring twist to it and came up with this Quadrille of exactly 44 words.

It is easy to fall behind. You set goals, make plans, create schedules, and the world intervenes. The result is you flounder, miss the mark, call yourself a failure. Your great plan lays in ruins. Thinking in black and white terms, in happiness or disappointment, can encourage you to forsake your dreams. Thankfully, colors have countless shades and success can be measured in degrees.

Life ebbs and flows. A writing session may see words appear on the screen without effort. At the next scheduled session, your fingers can’t communicate with the keyboard. Consistency is key, you must create within the day’s constraints. If you do your best, if you compose what you can, then you are a winner.

How many words will you write today?

As I close my eyes

A Faded Romantic's Notebook

A sleepy

Sunday afternoon

in this quiet

English garden

lazily stretched out

in soft cotton

and faded denim

surrendering to sun

and shadows

light and cloud

insect buzz

and bird song

summoning you

to dance

in the darkness

of my imagination

as I close my eyes.
