Snow Blind. It’s a 6.

grey flecked white, silhouette on heart stain red, outside curtained window, swirling snow

storm un-predicted, boughs reluctantly bend, unsuspecting nature’s silence comfort in the air

melting like Salvador into arms of over-sized chair, softness turns to caution turns to tears

scarred life worn, the trunk in a corner, room grown too small, like baby bird outgrowing the nest, 

locked by years missing, fear floats free-falling

key in hand, release

      Thank you, Paul!
      Perhaps you ought to take a stab at it, the poetry thing 😀
      Did that come across as a challenge? lol. Well, alright, challenge it is 🙂

    (Sorry Paul, I know thats not what you meant, but, like they say, you can take the lifeforms out of Y Chromia, but you can’t take the Y Chromia out of the lifeform.)

          gauntlet toss, you say?
          Well, I didn’t come to this virtual world to be comfortable…
          (Its been my experience, at least here in the ‘sphere, that my comfort zone does nothing for self-improving myself)…. your challenge…state your terms, yo

            Oh, gee… Denise sets the terms. Ultimately. But…
            We all know it doesn’t have to rhyme, but it could. Any form? Six “sentences”; some poetic license allowed.
