Petite Pen~February 22, 2023

I quite like hosting Petite Pen on Wednesday, right in the midst of the mid-week slump. And if you’re feeling the decay, please join me in penning some brevity, 30 words or less, to this print or your choice of print by Zdzisław Beksiński. Warning: His gallery is a place of inspiration, but sensitive viewers may chose not to visit there. As always feel free to share your brevity in a comment below, and if you post it to your beautiful blog, please ping it back here for all to enjoy.

Happy Wednesday!

Whose Bones are Those?

Whose bones are those?
Difficult to say
as we decompose.
Ankles as knees,
triangular truth.
Hands in prayer,
a skillful mule
driven underground
by a deathbed sea.
All is shrouded
by nature’s cruelty.

  1. A life lived
    in luxurious lament, labeled
    by people’s ideas
    of dread

    a fascinating quatrain, insipid
    and inspiring

    leaving me bereft
    and wondering
    where hope was left

    Saturday has come, and a visit to your site, and your poetry always fills me with inspiration, and joy. Happy weekend, K. 💜

    • Hope, aren’t we lucky it was at the bottom of Pandora’s box. This piece reminds me of that constant. Thank you so much for dropping by and writing alongside me. I am the lucky one to have you as a patron. 💜Cheers to a worry-free weekend.
