|My very first painting of my Dragonfly Girls in 2011|
Today's prompt for the "The April Prompt-a- Day Challenge"
(over at the poetic Imaginary Garden with Real Toads)
is to write a poem using Poem Sketching.
The instructions are a little long,
so if you would like to know more
please go HERE!
I LOVE this Challenge.
I am learning so much about poetry!
The words I chose are
dragonfly, pond, safe, silence
The Dragonfly Pond
There is a dragonfly at my window
He beckons me outside
It's nightfall and so dark, I say
Then out the window I slide
I flew with him, I am not sure how
To a pond so beautiful and bright
With thousands of dragonflies flying about
Creating the most magnificent sight
See, he says, I have no intention to harm you
Only to bring you here
Your ancestors are all around you now
You are safe, please have no fear
My ancestors, what was he saying
There were no ghostly humans here
The dragonflies, he told me, are always with you
In silence I sat, watching the magic appear
Their artistry was magnificent
Their colors, oh so bright
Yet it was their magical teachings
That brought me to the pond tonight
Comments and critiquing are joyfully welcomed.
Hope the beginning of your week
is off to a great start!
