Wordleing with a Photo Challenge – May 17, 2015

grieving by the candles
a treasure lost – the sun
to learn to live in darkness
and walk the cemetery’s gravel path
was to be her soulless destiny –

the tavern was her doom
this prodigal girl did find
in a roar of thundery brimstone
she passed from her daily life
leaving  her forever longing
for the rushing stream at dawn.

  1. This laps like waves…a gentle permeating sadness which in itself is beautiful…although retreating into any underground is so very hard to work your way out of..


    • Thanks Jae Rose … a lovely comment and yes, once one’s retreated into any underground it is difficult to work ones way out … in this case I’m afraid she won’t be able to work her way out at all …


  2. Ambiguous ending in those last two lines – not sure if it ends happily or not – that lost treasure of the sun – and then the dawn. Did she escape her soulless doom?


  3. I love the way you have combined the 2 prompts – it flows with ease and a darkness that is interesting, given the watery nature of the photo. Really fascinating and great wordle use. 😀


  4. The tavern was my uncle’s doom too. He drank himself to death at a very young age, leaving behind two small sons. Your poem brought him to mind, even though I haven’t thought of him for many years.

    • I think alcohol is just a pernicious as any other drug and can lead to a terrible life, not only for the alcoholic, but for their family as well. Unfortunately my father was an alcoholic and died alone.
