What do you see? – A Keen Heart


This poem was written for Helene Vaillants ‘What do you see’ Challenge. See link below:

What do you See? May 14/2019


A gleaming glorious spire

Above the darkest vault,

Are you curious to enquire,

what treasures there exalt?

At the towers very top,

With views across the land,

A splash of crimson petals

Watered by a loving hand.

The greatest prize is always seen

With effort and a heart that’s keen.

50 Word Thursday # 19 – The Results

The 50 Word Thursday Challenge is over for another week and I remembered to post the results!

Click on the link below to see the original post:


The Challenge was to write a story or poem in 50 word multiples up to a maximum of 250 words in response to a photo prompts and a sentence.

So here’s the picture for LAST week:


And the words:`What do you call yourself?’ the Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had! – Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

I am sure you are all curious to read the various ways people have interpreted the picture.

Here are the results:
