solace wednesday verse


Sometimes they rush out,
Taking with them my tears,
Taking away too my fears;
Perhaps an ounce of solace,
Yet in that moment I know,
That ounce, it matters so.
How in that one tiny verse,
A bit of hope takes form,
And in their softest whisper,
I see a light after the storm.

As part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Reema and I have started this weekly prompt we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. We are happy to have you rhyme with us. Welcome!

Today, March 21st, is World Poetry Day! Let’s celebrate with more poems.

Prompt #11 is WORDS.

Please link up only if you’ve written a poem for the prompt!

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.
