This Fight

in this fight
the bright treads lightly
sparing fools

enlightment a causualty
as ad hoc plans breeds havoc
vindictiveness clings to its perch

Butterfly Cinquain

the sprint is on
peony shoots rise up
garden is coming alive, now
nature
bold in its infinite wonder
flaunting its ugly side
agile microbe –
a plague

(This photo is the prompt)

chaos came to pass
funky monkey business strive
that’s how we got here! –

a mass reversal needed
I’m going to need more wine!!

 

 

Version #2

chaos came to pass

after nimble fingers tipped the scale –

that’s how we got here!

we are now in need of a mass reversal

I’m going to need more wine!!
