Reena’s Exploration Challenge – Week 48 – She walked through fire, but was not burnt by it

week-48

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Among the Rocks” by Robert Browning: gigantic, simple, bones, clear, bask, knows, knees, throes, ripple, gain, heap, earth

She walked through fire, but was not burnt by it
She took a gigantic heap and has won
Life’s a big adventure, she’s to admit
There’s always an action and reaction
What’s clear is she has to try and never quit
On this earth life is wonderful and fun
Bask in the glory and learn the lesson
Be in control and carry the burden

She kept on walking through the fire and how
She got burnt sometimes, throes of pain and hurt
Some ripples of ups and downs anyhow
Gaining or losing even with effort
She knows she can harvest what she has ploughed
Simple as that as long as she’s stalwart
She has got a bone of contention
She’s enjoying her life that’s for certain*
