Verse First prompt:

Virginia Woolf once said, "“I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in.”

Upon consideration, one realizes that being locked - in  or out- can be literal, emotional, medical, figurative.  And there are other meanings to ponder. A lock can be a fastener fitted to a door or drawer to keep it firmly closed. It can be a section of canal that can be closed to control the water level; used to raise or lower vessels that pass through it. Or a lock can be a simple strand or cluster of hair.

Write a poem around the notion of a lock, using whatever meaning sets free your creativity.

Lock the door of my heart so I can behold only you
Hold the key in your hands to the end of time
Let my love not waver nor question this bond
Let my soul shine through like a beacon of love

You and I have sailed the tumultuous seas
In millennium after millennium
Locked our hands that none could break apart
And sang together the songs of our souls

Let me hear again the melody that entices my spirit
And binds me ever closer to you
Let me rest awhile in your loving embrace 
So my weary soul may dance again; renewed, refreshed, awakened


OSI prompt - Demon

The mind is in constant battle with the heart and is the mastermind behind that creeping fear.

Let the demon of doubt vanish from my mind
Let him not start a feud with my heart
Let him no place in my existence find
Let him not tear my soul apart

For love is the key to conquer all
With faith in my heart I free my mind
The demon of doubt then begins to fall
And unlocked are the fearful chains that bind

Loving Heart

Written for:

image source: the write tribe

The heart is the vault where love resides
It's true nature is compassionate and kind
Love is a universal energy, a state of bliss
Individually defined and mine is this ...

Love is your shoulder when I need some rest
Love is a kind word when I'm not at my best
Love is a sweet smile that lights up your face
Love is your unique style no one can replace

Love is a wonder like a blooming rose
Love is that familiar touch that helps me repose
Love is a warm hug that soothes my mind
Love is that universal spark eternal and divine

Love is that energy that brings me peace
Love is to give but also to receive
Love is a little flame that touches my soul
Love is a tender heart that makes me whole


Wishing you all a very Happy Valentines Day.

Ode to my Dad

Written for: Poetry Jam - Tribute

Quiet and gentle,
Great strength of character
Peaceful mantle
A true benefactor

Always a good word
Seeing goodness in all
Faced life undeterred
Through many a squall

Loving and kind
Humble and unassuming
Beautiful mind
Never complaining

A smile on his face
Always encouraging
Filled with grace
Ever forgiving

This was my dad
A man amazing and rare
I was truly blessed 
To have been in his care

Be at peace Dad.
