A bench, a brace, a bliss.


Shall we sit?
A clattering clutch of rasp,
a clasp of calling,
a quiet falling
kettle caldron,
as we scold the world
and claim
……….our crowns.

The world’s a palette,
a storytelling,
a menagerie of mess.

Perhaps it’s best
if we just stay,
…..hum awhile
and stain ourselves
in a tangle of hope.



..A second offering for my own prompt over at dVerse. Bird word fun. Come play!

  1. That ‘tangle of hope’ De reminds me of so much of life, we cling to it as a way of making sense of the mess we see so much around us….

    I too like that “menagerie of mess” and your closing lines of a tangled hope, De. Thanks for the fun prompt. It’s been great reading them all.

  4. There are days I think I need to be stained with hope.

    Oh that’s delightful!

    I like the “sea/see lame” inside of “claim.” Also I see “home” hiding in “hum.”
