silhouette of mountain during sunset

I see the orange and purple sky on the horizon

And I feel pacified

Everything is going to be alright

I watch the gentle rain assiduously bathe the earth

And I feel afresh

Everything is going to be alright

I hear the distant, unbridled laughter of a child

And I feel a smile play upon my face

Everything is going to be alright

I see the love in my wife’s eyes as she says goodnight

And I feel blessed as she says

Everything is going to be alright

HORIZONS… a poem

Don’t count me in

I’m leaving again

Your horses are dragging me down

Like clouded sun rays

You ruin my days

I don’t want to see you around

But the only way out

And away from your pout

Is for me to go back out to sea

Where the air is much fresher

Without you and your pressure

Just horizons that beckon to me

TELL THE STORY CHALLENGE: The Case of the Missing Castle Guard

First off, thank you so much, Jenna, for including me in this delightful challenge! Tell The Story Challenge is such a fun way to express a variety of talents from our dear friends here on WP …

Clouds descending upon Castle Bright

As day turns into ominous night

Screeching of creatures hide in the mist

While a fog envelops and the air it crisps

How can chaos arise in here

Where once was day and sunshine clear

Elves and fairies and trolls alike

Borrow and scamper or take to flight

Escaping in panic leaving all behind

Lest the evil that stalks become their brine

Where is the hero who guards the gate

Deterring the enemy that loves to hate

Tis more than lunch or afternoon tea

That keeps the keeper of Castle Bright free

Has he found folly and paid the cost

Leaving us to suffer in a harrowing loss

Upon whose ears will the trumpet sound

Releasing the bonds of our castle and ground

Yet even as sorrow builds its army strong

A light in the distance and above the throng

Is hope that can pierce this deepening fright

As our castle guard returns – as a marvelous knight

Now to play the Tell The Story Challenge is relatively simple, you must tag three people to participate and their role is to create a story or tale or poem or just a verse to support the image offered them as inspiration.

My three choices are:

If this is a dream

Of what sailors do

Then, sign me up sir

I’m the man for you

Cruising the seas

With waves that caress

Down below there be mermaids

Bearing their… souls

Well, what did you think I was going to say?
