I wrote this for Word Challenge 2

At Spirit Musings


obsidian, sluggish, reed, fields, gauze,

translucent, bevy, survey, golden, barge



“Power Of Nature”



The playground of many

Fields and heaven


Melancholic view

Bevy of larks

Survey of high priority

Golden horizons now gone

Not translucent anymore

As a barge of obsidian

Sluggish volcano glass

Slowly covers up reed’

Once again

The power of nature

Has spoken





And with the help of that little demon of mine “Chuck”

“Larks Ascent”


A bevy of larks

Fly as if disturbed

From reed’ fields

By the rumble

Of a distant volcano

With high priority

They survey

Contours of translucent earth

Coursing the sky

With the steadied ease

Of a sluggish barge


Between sun

And obsidian clouds

As if avoiding

A butterfly hunter’ gauze
