We’re writing a Quadrille at d’Verse  Poets where Bjorn is tending bar.
44 words using the word ‘Jar’

if I could, I would
capture your
smile in a jar
to comfort me
on cloudy days
or stormy nights
and when I’m cold or
feeling scared I
would open the lid
ever so slightly
to hear your laugh
and I’d be brave again


also posting this on the Tuesday Platform at Real Toads


I am a reader, a writer, and a snapper of photos

  1. Oh, this is wonderful! It resonates in my soul. I’m saving it to read again and again.
    Poetry, music, and art. Mediums I wish I had talent in but, don’t. I’ m going to get a bit mushy, but be honest. I wish I had the gift to put into words what I feel. I don’t, but am ever so grateful for you and others like you who can.

      1. 🙂 I can’t write…good Lord, I can’t even type without leaving out words!

        I’m still trying to find my creative outlet. It’s not writing, piano, poetry, or painting. It may photography…I get that, but as a woman I am held back by fear. Fear of being robbed, raped, and killed. I love night photography, and landscapes. Landscapes that could take me to places far out from the places that man walks…the ocean and the mountains. In a place that I would not be on the top of the Food Chain! It’s a very frightening place. I’ve been there. I don’t like it alone.
        Finding a partner that “gets me” and wants the same thing …well that person has entered my life yet. I hope they enter yours sooner!
