It’s Just a Little Degree


Ninety –eight feels the same as ninety-seven

But thirty-one can turn all that rain to ice

Orange you glad you hung on to the railing

Before you stepped outside in the dark

I never saw the Red Planet

What did Mars have on its ground?

If we ever try it

I doubt an olive leaf will ever be found

Six degrees of separation

Might tell if you relate to me

But if you don’t know the Savior

You’re as far away as the nth degree

Linking this to Linda Kruschke and Paint Chip Poetry. The prompt is “six degrees of separation”. The words are red planet, orange you glad, strawberry, tornado, ice, olive branch, in the dark. The requirement is to use “in the dark” and at least two other words. Bonus points if you use “Kevin Bacon”.

Considering I know nothing about Kevin Bacon (not a movie buff), or the game I think I passed.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
