Petite Pen~February 15, 2023

I realized there are no rules around this place. I can as easily share a petite pen on a Wednesday as I could on a Tuesday. It’s just the sort of chaos that appeals. If you feel bombarded by today’s image, please feel free to join me in penning some brevity, 30 words or less, to this stunning photograph by the talented blogger, Vovazinger.

Each Day is an Execution

Bombardment of the sun.
Pitchforked into oblivion.
Sunset, witch hunt,
the day’s secrets
hidden by downcast eyes.
Whatever piety exists,
pilgrims can keep it.
Someone bright to blame is
all most zealots want.
If you’ve got sparkle
better learn to run.

    • Yes…. I love to run. But, it doesn’t mean I want to be chased. 🤣. Sad that all sorts of “witch hunts” still take place–in various forms and under various banners. Difference is scary, I suppose.


  1. I love your poem today, which is not unusual. Here is my contribution.

    regaining insight

    reigning supreme
    in the night

    and the day
    serendipity plays
    with my heart, and
    my mind

    the whole of me
    one fragment of being
    at a time

    Happy weekend, K. 💜

    • Magical response. Thank you for writing alongside me. 💜 I truly love the chiaroscuro, Jeff. It really heightens the drama in this piece and the photograph as well. The final fragments of a person divided between day/night or darkness and light. Such sweet serendipity every day.
