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.

What do you See? April/09/2019



In natures garden, I stand serene

My mind alert, my senses keen,

Joined hand in hand with kindred hearts

We dance around while hate departs.

Those who taunt to bedevil our aims

Who bring their hatred and their flames

Will not deter us from our path

We eschew the ways of the sociopath.

a sensible ideology,

Peace and love is our theology,

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge April 9, 2019

The Challenge was to write a poem or story containing the words “Blurred Thoughts”.



Blurred thoughts from a mind’s torment

I feel a wave of calm content

As magic and music’s melody,

Softly washes over me.

Lapping at my conscience, keen,

from Shakespeare’s play, I glimpse a scene

A fairy tale, a fantasy theme

Transported into a Midsummer Nights Dream.
