Untitled Prompt #1

Day dreams

sun bleached driftwood

a belching of black seaweed

using a stick to create a heart

drawing our initials

wanting to hold your hand

feel your warmth.

Sitting here

the sun ending its day

falling beneath the waves

the tide  rolling in

erasing my heart

erasing our initials

putting an end to all I dream.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

    1. You know what if you had not issued the challenge/offer I probably would not have. I always looked at the Daily Prompt but was unsure what to do. You have given me a push. 🙂 (BTW I only know how to make smiley faces on my notebook lol)

      1. I’ve been having a bit of a block and was gonna take time off WordPress but if I do that I’ll just abandon it, so thought it might give me a bit of motivation to keep at it. It’s fab someone else is doing it with me 👍
