A SNAPSHOT IN TIME

This week's prompt from Under the Porch Light are:

grizzled, peaks, solitude, fire, delicate, yearning or the phrase, "a snapshot in time".    Obviously, I used both! 


Once long delicate locks

Turn to harsh, grizzled peaks

Vibrant eyes now a smoldering fire

Where solitude leaks

A yearning for a snapshot in time

When birth and death meet.

    1. You're way too kind in your description of the few words I threw together in just a few minutes. It's me who needs to thank you for not only reading my words, but for commenting. THANK YOU!

    1. Delores, I've missed participating and wanted to come up with something. I like to tell myself the pieces I post are the bare bones of some more lengthy, beautifully written poem. Maybe someday when I'm feeling better, I'll attempt to compose a "masterpiece" ! LOL
