Z to A in 26 Days – Nov 25th – E for Expectations

Expectations, like
Eternal fires burn,
Their remains in
Ash-pit, cupped
By hands, passed
Through a grate
And reincarnated
No relieved breath
After resurfacing,
Fork-lifted from
Suffocating depth
Then hung to dry
By hands eager for
Us to relive past
Eager to guide us
To the future, yet
Awaken us from
Dreams to drown
Them in a boiler
Path expectations
Take is unknown
Yet in ink of blood
My nib recollects
The lush jeers of
Unmet expectations

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I could relate…this only goes to show that nothing is perfect… πŸ™ not everything we wish to cup in our hands could be held for long or stay for good…well, it’s not the end of things, for at the end of a tunnel is a sure promise of light!

    Mine is here: Hope you will be kind enough to understand my early end to your challenge…and btw, pls send your guest post soonest! Thanks πŸ˜€

      Happy anniversary to yu πŸ˜› but I wont understand ur early exit. u could’ve finished the remaining at your acrostics blog atleast πŸ™

  2. That was a hard Wordle to be incorporated so well into a poem, specially as you were following another prompt as well. Expectations – the triumph of optimism over pessimism.

  3. My reply disappeared! I said: that was a hard wordle to incorporate so well into a poem, specially a you were responding to other prompts as well. Expectations: a triumph of optimism.
