Treat - 6 Word Friday

The Unanticipated
The surprise
The undiscovered…

Rare finds uncovered
Ribbons, wrappers, bags…

Enthusiastic squeals
Energetic giggles
Eyes bright

Awe inspired faces
Amazement, gratitude, delight

Today anticipation
Tonight realization
Tomorrow reliving…

My first attempt at 6 Word Fridays

Cinquain Poetry in Threes

Diamonds, Crystals
Searing, Stinging, Cleansing
Washing clean the heart.


Energetic, enthusiastic
Bubbling, Bursting, Floating
Life’s most magic elixir.


Honest, Firm
Calming, Empowering, Steadying
Infused with heart authenticity.

No Time

Words spread across the page
The girl starves; my heart weeps
Stark reality

Our children, boys, girls
Pressures and expectations
Adults do not see

Appearance, success
Perfection, must not ever fail
Adults in child form

How many see them
Treasures and gifts of children
Or is there no time

(Written during the reading of Winter Girls by Laurie Anderson)

Where We Begin

Years ago I imagined
Days and nights spent sharing
The stories told by the wind.

I felt the tales it would tell
The places seen
Experiences observed

The gentlest of breezes whisper
Sweet poetry and song
While forceful winds demand to be heard
Their voices ring clear and strong

Throughout the years
I have learned
Everything has something to share.

It isn’t just the wind
But the ocean
The creek
The trees
The people...

Here is where words are whispered
They find voices of their own
Creativity and imagination occupy this space
Spoken and unspoken…
The words and thoughts shared here, with friends and alone.
