Rest Assured

 


REST ASSUREDDescription unavailable

hammock
held by palms
on either end

lifted spirits while
lightening the load
of life’s burdens;

endless sight
of blue
filled my eyes,

scent of salt air
and plumeria
lingered as

fingers skimmed
water’s surface
and the gentle sway

fell still;
each heap of
worry was

replaced
with flecks
of sand and sun

Inspired by The Sunday Whirl’s Prompt #84: still, scent, sight, fell, fleck, sway, load, heap, skimmed, held, end, and fill; and posted on Day #24 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.

A Mess From A Bottle

 

A MESS FROM A BOTTLE
(a shadorma)

She watched her
hero disappear.
It wasn’t
overnight;
the villain emerged slowly…
one shot at a time.
