Poetic Aside Prompt: Second Thoughts
http://blog.writersdigest.com/poeticasides/2011/04/21/2011AprilPADChallengeDay21.aspx

Second Thoughts
The wind whistles through
The trees
I bend to pick up sticks
A ritual
A dance
A game
Setting my mind free
Untethered
A kite in the wind
Hard to tell
No words to say
New thoughts
Second thoughts
Or... just love

The lucky poet
Carefully places each moment
Upon the window sill
Arranges them by size
And color
Image appears
Like the completion
Of a puzzle
New thoughts
Second thoughts
Or... just love

The book falls open
Reading between the lines
The world is brighter
Exploring distant shores
As in a dream
Hard to tell
No words to say
New thoughts
Second thoughts
Or...just love

Annell, echoing everyone else on your echoes! This is a delicately sweet poem that speaks to the essence of why we write. Publishable. Go for it, and you don't need the graphic with, just your words. SUBMIT. (Resistance is futile, LOL)

Peaceful, solid, echoic work. Good stuff.
