Under the stars of winter
Watched over by trees of the night,
Few would ever see her,
As she snuggled down under the light.
Wrapped in the coolness of evening
A glow shining above her head,
Gentle, relaxed in her breathing,
She lays in a snow laden bed.
This ice maiden deeply sleeping,
No torturous dreams to bear,
Safe in the Spiritual Keeping
Of warm arms that truly care.
By morning the snow may have vanished,
Her soul takes its place high above,
Life as she knew it replenished,
She is now a star filled with love.

Time to get up!: Compilation 06/14/2022

If the truth be told and I don’t really lie
my heart wasn’t in it, I wanted to die
I declined the chance which might have been bad
it was an opportunity I never have had
Until I found out later that day
with dawn and then twilight dimming the way
my fears could diminish and vanish for good
If I conflated my lives with a twist of my mood
I was only a chicken with white, softish wings
the dawn of a new day was really my thing
so I sucked up my fear and used what I had
And found waking up early wasn’t that bad.

Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 06/14/2022


Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

surreal-optical-illusion-paintings-by-rob-gonsalves-21
https://art-sheep.com/24-of-rob-gonsalves-most-beautiful-optical-illusion-paintings/


*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
