Eyes Wide Open – Week 5

Good Morning!

This is what I came across this week while out and about in nature. As always all photos are taken with an iPhone.

Enjoy your Saturday!

I see a face in this dead Palm tree

Mango Tree

 

An insurance company would call this an “attractive nuisance”.  I could easily have stolen these delicious looking mangoes

 

Keep your eyes open, you never know what you will see!

Impromptu Haiku

 

An effervescent

Ingredient of piffle

Abominable!

The Word Prompt Gods were just not playing fair today.  I thought and thought but was not inspired by any of the four presented.

This is the best I can come up with today in the form of an Im-prompt-u Haiku!  I’m sure you will all do better than this. Have a great day!

Verge

You are balancing
On the edge once more
Teetering on the brink
Where will it take you this time
I wonder as my heart again
Drops to the floor

On the verge of explosion
Paralyzed with fear
Will I pull you back
Or let you go
Even if to my detriment
Or do I brave a new frontier

Unpredictability is expected
There is always a blind side
Never seeing it coming
My heart gets attacked
Sometimes I wish for it
And that I would have died

Love going through a meat grinder
Pounded into shreds
What comes out is a mockery
It’s happening again
A relationship in tatters
Lives left in threads

Our nucleus unstable
The contact between us worn thin
Our love’s constellation
Imploding in space
Shattering into fragments
This life in a tailspin

Heart

If the heart is a muscle
How can it break?
In a thousand pieces
A constant ache

Shattered like glass
Trodden into the ground
Slashing life’s tires
Irreparable and profound

Ripped apart over and again
Miraculously repairing
Growing larger than before
Open to more exploring

Never forever broken
A heart always repairs
Life’s great mystery
Meant to be shared
