I wrote this for Word Challenge 2


At Spirit Musings


“Words”


obsidian, sluggish, reed, fields, gauze,


translucent, bevy, survey, golden, barge


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

“Power Of Nature”


 


Once


The playground of many


Fields and heaven


Gauze…


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


 


~*~*~


11


 


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


Steering


Between sun


And obsidian clouds


As if avoiding


A butterfly hunter’ gauze
