in/out

borne on the wind

 

of a waft of butterfly wing

 

or wrenched

 

from the heart of loss

 

 

love’s crucible

 

is breath

 

or lack of it

 

Sanaa is prompting today at Real Toads offering up a poem by Carol Ann Duffy as inspiration. You can read the poem at the Toads link. The challenge is to write about love, using a common everyday image. Choose your own form or write in free verse

  1. My goodness this is good! It feels like you plucked out the essence of the original and poured it like diamonds into your own! Beautifully executed. Thank you so much for participating, Paul 😀

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  2. Wow! Look at that “love’s crucible is breath…” accomplished line. Brilliant take on the prompt.
