the lovers wander through the city
as they go about their shopping spree
they were walking in passion
met after work, now having fun
city so charming, they fell in love with it
lots of interesting places, they have to admit
several of the city’s skyscrapers are there
they won’t miss cafes and bars in the square
people strolling and chatting, city so vibrant
museums and places to eat on the front
holding hands in the park and the weather’s so good
watching people hither and thither as they stood
at night, all the lights are on and everything’s bright

B’S POETRY CHALLENGE #14 – CONQUER

lookout

looking out from the darkness
sky so bright, blue sea and hills
looking out from the darkness

a peaceful rural idyll
where we could go for a walk
sky so bright, blue sea and hills

wearing jeans and white smock
meet my friend for a picnic
where we could go for a walk

we can paddle by the creek
splashing water, what fun
meet my friend for a picnic

we had a race and I won
“I let you win,” he shouted
splashing water, what fun

“I’m the winner,” I gloated
looking out from the darkness
“I let you win,” he shouted
looking out from the darkness

Life is an enigma – FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER- 2017 WEEK #19

man

Life is an enigma
I have to go through it
With all its challenges
And hindrances, of course
I might fall in ditches

Life is an enigma
I cannot fathom it
I know I’ll find my way
But it will take a while
Each day I have to play

Life is an enigma
Some thick fogs on the way
Different roads to take
I could get lost sometimes
Some things are at stake

Life is an enigma
I’m glad you are here, too
Together we travel
Experience and taste life
Fight our own battle*
