Incantations of Appreciation


It’s the way the blue blurs
her sharp edges, shirrs the corners
into slighter sway.

It’s the day she realizes all
is blessing, joy is now,
grace new each day.


Prompted by Poetic Asides.

    Beautiful. And so wise. We can be such stubborn stones.

    P.S. I’m going to do a prompt for you every day in December, and it’s going to be hilarious. They can be tiny poems, but you have to do them. I promise to crack you up as often as possible with how offbeat they will be. Just one-word/phrase starters, like “crackhouse” or “Cornelius” or “caretaker of doom.” Maybe I will even make them alphabet themed. 😉

      I woke up with ten poetry starters for you this morning. I couldn’t keep them all in my brain long enough to get them on paper, but I saved a couple. They’re upstairs, though. 🙂 One was maybe this new word:

      You writing today?

Use your words.
