They walked away

Debbies One Word Sunday: Communication

Come said
Marcel
this discussion
is going
nowhere.
Yes said
William
I agree
She never
listens.
We should
go to the
farmhouse
to see if
farmer Harrison
can help
talk sense into
Jeanine.
Yes said
Marcel
sometimes she
can be
pigheaded,
no offence
William.
William
just grunted.

On the beach

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday:Something

It came from there
I heard him say
the water
splashed again.
What is in there?
I heard him say
a seagull squawked
a crab scuttled.
What shall we do?
I heard him say
the sand
crunched underfoot.
Something’s in there
I heard him say
The drum
rolled
What shall we do?
I heard him say again
they looked at each other
Something they said
in unison

Get ready to run

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #88: Chaos

A casual stroll
the leaves crackle
underfoot.
Watching birds
the sky above
calmly.
A stop to see
up there
searching.
Unaware below
near the feet
danger.
They sense intruders
this is theirs
forest.
Looking down
a tingle sends
messages.
Here they come
from the nest
rushing.
Quick move away
running in
chaos.

Masterpiece

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Masterpiece

The masterpiece
that arises from
where?
Is this a study
of work
of thought
of desire.
The head
decides
the fingers
twitch
the heart

beats.

 

What is
this?
What is
that?
will you
see
show me
your masterpiece
I’ll show
you mine.
A collaborative
decision
This goes
there
What about
this
here.
To you
my friend
it is just
a bit of
stuff
to us
it is
a
masterpiece.
