Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?


Weekly Writing Challenge: Time Travel


If you were granted a wish to travel in time,
Would you travel ahead, or back to a moment sublime ?

If for a day you could live it all over again,
Would you be able to forgive all who caused you pain?

Would you travel to those memories that filled you with bliss?
Or pause at those old crossroads, yet again, to see what went amiss?

Would you only choose to return to the laughter and fun?
And all those moments of romance in the sun?

Would you go back to walk the roads less taken?
And face yourself head-on each time your soul felt shaken?

Would you undo all that remained unsaid?
Or remain just as silent lest an unknown path you tread?

Would you cry less so you could laugh more?
Or face truths with more honesty than ever before?

What path would you choose, I ask you, my friend?
If for one day you could see it all, from beginning to end ?



Weekly Writing Challenge: 1000 Words

thousand words

A thousand words to write my dreams?

A thousand wings to make them fly?

Not really, I do not need that much

A song in my heart, maybe a thought too shy.


A thousand ways to tell a lie?

A thousand words to prove a truth?

Is life really that verbose?

That silence wouldn’t see me through?


A thousand colors to paint each day

A thousand stars to count each night

I want it all and more this time

Tarry a while my heart, before you take flight.


A thousand battles to be won within

A thousand more rage without

Some worth fighting, some not so much

A thousand moments of self doubt.


A thousand joys and then some more

A thousand sorrows with tears galore

Take your pick, live your life

For every moment lost, even a thousand wouldn’t suffice…


The challenge said a 1000 words for a given image, … these are mine.. less than a thousand but they are the ones that came to me when I looked at this image…
