This week's prompts from Under The Porch Light are highlighted in the short poem below:

Kissing a frog hoping to find a prince
Is like trying to describe a rainbow to a blind person

It’s like rolling the dice, it can be such a cinch
But what you get is a just a fragmented version.

Not quite feeling love found before it’s lost
Not quite seeing colors boxed within a darkened tomb
Grand results have flagged such an extravagant cost
Of being amazed of the beauty in this unfurnished room.


  1. As I said yesterday - this is beautiful. Thank you.

  2. Nice work. We had some really good entries this week.

  3. I need to reread the actual frog-prince story and remind myself what it really is about. I think we tend to get caught up in what we think it means which isn't very promising.
