Pleasant rainy Thursday.I love the sound of raindrops on the office skylight. T
The poetry prompt today was "deadlines", probably because it was tax day, and once again, I couldn't make myself approach the prompt in a straight line.


Lines of the dead
lead back to source,
beginning, passion,
decision, action
love, ego, hope despair.
Lines of living pull
dead forward to
bless or doom
lines of unborn souls.

Live Lines

Dead lines,
Just marks on paper
How can they stir
my heart? Art.

Strong, succinct writing today. Two very different approaches to 'deadlines.'

I'm picturing the sound of raindrops right now...relaxing to long as they are not too strong!

I like the sounds of rain on skylights too and remember it well from the first office we had for the newspaper. I like your deadline poems too. Not in a straight line are always my choice too!

Great poem, Victoria. I love how you are looking at these challenges so uniquely! Very clever!
