Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

As I sit here

As I sit here, I think of you;
While the world may spin around me,
I know I have the strength to push through
The sky is dark and I feel blue
But birds are singing in the oak tree
As I sit here, I think of you
I see your smile, slightly askew,
In my mind's eye, you're all I see;
I know I have the strength to push through
When my nightmares seem to come true,
While memories wash over me,
As I sit here, I think of you
Quiet patience radiates from you
Supportive, unconditionally;
I know I have the strength to push through
Life's not just what I've been used to
Your presence keeps reminding me
I know I have the strength to push through
As I sit here, I think of you.
Today's prompt came late, but I didn't have much to do. Rest and write. Which is important, as it helps me heal, one word at a time.
The prompt was breathtaking and the challenge was to try a Villanelle.
I sort of let go of the breathtaking bit, though he certainly takes my breath away on a very regular basis, but it's not what I chose to focus on today. Instead, I tried to take up the challenge and write a poem that worked with the form that was suggested.
I feel I've succeeded. I hope you agree.


  1. I am not familiar with this form but this is a beautiful poem, full of love.

    1. Thank you. I wasn't familiar with it either, but I enjoyed working with it.
      I'm glad you could feel the love. 😊

    2. And of course, I went back to check and I meant Villanelle! Me and my silly mind!

    2. Thank you Annis. I am certainly happy to read that my poem evoked contentment. I am so glad to have this man in my life. He is a big part of my healing.
      Thank you. XO
