Colorful Remedy

The inkling of color in a violet bloom, Enough to lift deep winter’s gloom…   To see the vibrant colors of life, Eases the ills of cold snowy strife…   So glad am I to have it close by, To lift my spirit when…

Thrill to Nil

When first I read, the word as “thrill”… I thought a post I’d surely fill… Upon a second glance, I’m ill… Turns out the prompt is really “trill“… So here I sit, ideas now nil… And sadly I’ve now lost the will.    …

Color Doodle

Just a small color based doodle. It has been rather cold around here the last few days with snow all around so I thought I would doodle with mostly with warm colors. They aren’t anything impressive, just a bit theraputic to make. Have a…

Scene: A Quiet Place

I don’t think it would shock anyone that this is one of my favorite scenes from a few months ago. [Begin scene] Between the rocks along a tiny trail, Is found this place of little water falls… When here no thoughts to give of win or…

Haiku:Undulate

Undulate with zest… Completely fill with music… Very exhausting.  

Scene: Funnel of Dusk

[Begin scene] A day calm and serene, closing once again… Light gathering into the funnel of dusk, melding into the brightest yellows… Reds and purples streaming in, reflected about by a mix of clouds… A small pond mirroring back the beautiful sight, highlighting a…

Daily Prompt: Treat

Just a short, and so-so poem today.   The snow piled deep, Whilst everyone did sleep, When morning came, With weather to blame, A day for us to keep.   A simple welcome treat, To stay within the sheets, And spend more time, With…
