Today’s prompt is based in a poem by Larry Levis called “The Two Trees.” It is a poem that seems to meander, full of little digressions, odd bits of information, but fundamentally, it is a poem that takes time. I’d like to challenge you to write something that involves a story or action that unfolds over an appreciable length of time.
Tourist or traveler ??
Christine, beautifully expressed how gradually we mature.🙂💞
Thank you dear friend. I am enjoying these daily challenges. 🙂
You are so welcome and so am I! 🙂💞
love the ingredients to this poem of yours Christine, the serenity of waiting for something to reach maturity, how wonderful to reap its benefits at the end, makes me want to slow down and take stock of the goodness I have around me, wonderful words my dear
Thank you Gina. 💕 Yes, exactly! On the flip side, the writer perhaps missed out on things along the way, because he/she was so certain of where they were supposed to be in life. 🙂💕
i can understand that, i wanted life to turn out a certain way but have realised through experience it never does, but i got instead was so much better in retrospect. always two sides of the coin, reason why I enjoy your poetry and thoughts Christine, you make room for everyone
Thank you dear Gina. Empathy is possible for all if only we try. My story here is one of intuition. I experienced very strong feelings as a child as to where I belonged and what I wanted to do and my life unfolded that way. However there was much to overcome as is the case for all of us. Heartache and pain affects everyone sadly. 😢
you have much focus, and am glad life turned out as you wanted it to, not many of us can say that.
I waited a lifetime for my happiness. I do understand. We have plenty of living left dear Gina. Yours can change course if open to receive ❤️
thank you for the encouragement Christine
A lovely poem.
Thank you so much 🙂💕
You’re welcome Christine.
Oh, Christine, your wondrous words are ringing soul, a similar tune, to my sound of my song….. heartfelt, touching, and life’s story……
Ivor, thank you so much my friend 🙂. I always knew where I would end up. Strange isn’t it? 💕 Also how maturity brings clarity 👍
Yes so true Christine,.. “how maturity brings clarity” 👍
