Life

I took this photo during a brutal winter, last year I think in my friends back yard. A frozen pipe broke and spewed onto the garden furniture and created this..that is a regular bench.

life
hard as hell
but it can still be
a beauty

“Life is never what you expect, it’s how you deal with what comes that makes a man or a woman out of you”

It’s a realization that dawns
After you managed to live through
That punch in the gut
You were sure you would
never get over
First, it’s “why me!”
But, why not you!! What makes you so darn special?
This is life, and everybody’s got to go through it. If you’re lucky.
Afterall, what is the alternative?

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge ( #WQWWC)

That quote is something I came up with. I’m sure I’m not the first to come up with this group of words.

Seagulls on the hood of my car. As I pulled up and started opening my window to take photos they swarmed the car. I had to shut the window quickly, thought one might get in. They thought I came to feed them, as often happens in this place on the pier. All photos are through the windshield: seagull shield. They didn’t move until I moved.

Brewing Storm Cinquain

lightning
fly through dark skies
waves unfurl – ashore wind
gusts softly ripple verdant fields
asway

This 2nd poem is based on the ‘words’ style: 1-2-3-4-1 pattern of words where the first is a noun, the second two adjectives describing the noun, three and four description, emotion, and the last word a synonym for the first word.

 lightning

quick, bright

ominous electric energy

scary scorching fiery white

Garden

spring garden
browns give way to green –
starting new

garden’s now awake
fall leaves no longer decor
the scent of rich soil

in my spring garden
little creatures are stirring
an ant on the move
