Day 14’s prompt: Write a ‘Time Out’ poem.

Listen to the Breeze

Listen to the breeze
When the world’s song
Has gone on too long.
Take that needed refrain
To refresh and revive
Your dimming spirit,
Before time puts it out,
And light of calm is lost.

***

Last year’s prompt for Day 14: Write an ‘Honest’ poem.

To Be Honest

‘To be honest’ they say,
That crushing blow
Cloaked in kind words.
It collapses worlds
In one cruel breath
And pierces the heart.

By voicing that virtue,
Anything we then say
Is already validated
By a vague authority
Who coldly condones
The sting of truth.
