The WriteOn group that I am a part of gave us Matisse's cut-out, Jazz, as an inspirational writing prompt. Below is what I created in the few minutes I was limited to. A dancing man Amongst jazzy stars Enjoying the night And raising the bars. Surrounded by blue But his heart rich red Brightening the night In everyone's … Continue reading Matisse: Jazz – Poetry Prompt 1
My love is like a shadow Ever so vulnerable Within every fading light Among the darkness of night Way too late to become seen In the heat of the moment Like the sun during the day Hearts burning for a display Of love unconditional Without conscious of pretense For a love life has a price … Continue reading Love Like a Shadow
