FFfAW Challenge – 173rd – Flock of birds fly in the summit

This week’s photo prompt is provided by wildverbs. Thank you wildverbs for our photo prompt!

After the cloudburst a tender breeze
Flock of birds fly in the summit
Generating love and peace
So please don’t gun them down
On such a bright day
Three doves flying
They bring
For all
No fights no hunger
In an ideal world
When we’re all responsible
And each one has a role to play
For freedom and democracy
As the birds fly, trees sway and sun shines

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge NO. 92, “Bewitch & Treasure,” #SynonymsOnly


There was once in her garden a Princess named Louise
Saw a frog in the pond who seemed to be saying “save me please”
Gave a kiss to the frog
Tired of having a monologue
He was turned to a prince and he was immediately free

He was called Prince Eugene who was enchanted
Told the princess she was a gem and her courted
Got married, people cheered
But then the prince felt weird
A lot of pressure, “could I go back as a frog?” he blurted

He went back to the witch and asked her to turn him back
Life in the castle was tedious and he didn’t mind getting sack
He said goodbye to the Princess
“Sorry but please don’t make a fuss”
He’s used to life in his pond and he’s not making a comeback*

Twittering Tales #92 – 10 July 2018 – On another beach

Out of my reach
You’re so far away
And even when I’ve
Caught you
Not possible
I can’t have you
Out of my reach

On another beach
Perhaps we’d have our day
When we could be halve
When we could go through
Time would let us able
That I could reach you
On another beach
