Beneath The Shadows

 

At “Go Dog Go Cafe”, Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge: Tuesday, June 2, 2020, Today’s prompt: Write a piece of prose or poetry around the phrase: “on our knees”

 

Beneath The Shadows

 

We bow before you, Lord of Trees

On our knees, we beg for the bees

Please, do not cast your shadows too deep

Enable the sun to warm our plants feet

And let their flowers thrive in the breeze

So the busy bees can pollinate our seeds

Decades of Storms

It’s time for “Go Dog Go Cafe’s” Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge. Today’s prompt: “Let there be storms”. And here is my little response to the prompt….

Decades of Storms

 

Over the decades

I’ve lived through many storms

Yesterday

I read about an Atlantic island storm

After midnight

I had a dream about my life’s storms

At dawn

I shall open my door to the storms

 

I will then wait for my storms

To vacate the dark

And ask the morning sunlight

“Am I still the pilot”?

Old Enough,  –  a Senryu

 

Three times is enough

I never want that again

I’m nearly too old
