In an instant

Her thoughts experience a series of seismic swings
running rapidly after the end and beyond
free falling through a fold in time
damaged and wasted; lying prone
draped in the hues of melancholy
sitting demurely in the lap of hopelessness
but winds of hope lift her on wings of promise
memories of enchanted times sashay saucily
reminding her of the advent of better times
and a half smile dangles from the corner of her lips.

      1. I don’t know if that was your intent–maybe you were the Heavenly messenger today. It is an anointed gift when we can speak hope into one another’s lives. I know that feelings are temporary–so the bleak, hard as it is, can’t last forever. Blessings to you and your family, for surely you are an angel ❤

      2. It was not my intent, to be honest but god certainly works in mysterious ways. I am no angel but if my words can help in any little way, I am always there for you. No, the bleak can never last forever.
        Thank you so much for your blessings. You stay blessed too. ❤️

      3. And I would happily do it daily–thank you for laughing WITH me and not AT me 🙂 I seesaw between crying jags and attempts to “do something”–and I’m not sure the choice to catch up on blogging was the wisest…except that it’s wonderful to converse with you, and display your stunning poetry. You are a stabilizing influence, one of your many fine traits! Much love ❤

  1. “Lap of hopelessness” “winds of hope” “wings of promise” – these are my favorite phrases from this one. The last line is all sorts of beautiful as well! I am catching up with your blog since you said you won’t be posting daily however, I think your definition of “not prolific” is my definition of “prolific”! 😂❤️

    1. Thanks a lot, Irma.
      Lol That post was a month back and in the month of November I posted about half a dozen poems compared to 30 or more every month! 😂😂 That is certainly “not prolific” for me!
      Thank you so much for taking out time to catch up. ❤️
