No harm in listening: Compilation 08/13/2022

On a lazy afternoon
while putting laundry out to dry
I thought about my income
what does broke mean and the why?
I need a stable job
to keep my life complete
Repentance not an option
to get back on my feet
And with this proclamation
I stand and wonder why
I hear tremulant voices
as I gaze up toward the sky.
It could be thunderclouds
or angels that I hear
Maybe I should listen
there is nothing I should fear.

Weekend Writing Prompt #272- Dazzling

Find it here:

What is Dazzling?

One look and I see
What dazzling means
In the eyes of the ones
Those here to be seen.

From the top of your head
To the tip of your toes
What dazzling means
Who really knows? 

It amazes me
Right to my core
That what dazzling means
Stands right at my door.
