No More Lists

I slept and dreamt
My list written
In calligraphy
Against a pastel horizon of citrus hues
Limes, oranges, lemons
Sweetest pink grapefruit

I awoke to ominous shadows
And the distant sound of wind
My fruit rained her acid
My letters ran unintelligible to all who saw
I said I woke too early

The background now a midnight sky
Blood red written letters cry
A living Hope shreds my list
Like pollen floats down
Spring brings redemption
To this barren ground

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 medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
