Right at the tip of his tongue
Are all the words he never said
He saw sunshine through the rain
Now thistles grow where silence bled
An unsuspecting glacier
Hard and cold none can push
Out of the blue between them
Burns with the slightest touch
Now they wait for sunlight’s rays
To breathe its fire and wash
Away the layers of love’s undoing
And hope its better than summer squash
This week our paint chip prompt with Linda Kruschke is to write about heartbreak. Remember, you don’t have to use the work heartbreak to write about it. The paint chip words and phrases this week are thistle, tip of the tongue, tree house, out of the blue, sunshine, summer squash, and glacier.
The rules are to write a 12-line poem using at least 4 of the words or phrases.
The end got kind of tricky. And with all the heartbreak around right now, a silly ending is okay with me.
