Quadrille #22/dVerse-Scars

 

Fleeting shadows of remembrance

No longer imprisoning

Yet bearing witness to one’s journey

Scars on the road of life

 

In moments of reverie

They come biding an audience

Some scream, some weep

Others whisper and stand back waiting

Until butterfly dreams

Flutter them away

 

Whimsygizmo‘s dVerse challenge to write a poem using exactly 44 words including “scar.”

    “Scars on the road of life” – perfect picture to go with this. I like the idea of memories bearing witness but not holding one back.

      Thank-you, Mary. Appreciated your visit. Loved your input. Yes, memories do bear witness, but if one is in the right mind-set, they will not hinder the journey, but show the way. 🙂

  12. That is very true! And you’re absolutely right, there are many different ways to edit/revise, just as there are many ways to write a novel. I agree, writing creates completely awesome feelings!Like? 0
