Please be sure to visit everyone at least once if you haven’t already. More variety than I thought would happen this week with the prompt word being Gift.

Deep Winter Despair
This may be where I take my stand,
this late January morning.
Sad thoughts rising, the transforming
virus spreading throughout the land.
Yes, Covid-19, you expand
your reach, our touch, your air, our breath,
your drilling into our soul’s depth.
We are masked pawns. You do not care
a whit for you are everywhere
and we are left with loss, with death

Two On A Rant::
She had loved once, innocence lost,
betrayed by his civility,
a man with an agility,
to throw her away without cost.
Outside window covered by frost,
mirrored the emotions inside
a woman unable to hide
her rapidly growing despair…
his child, abandoned without care,
two lives destroyed to save his pride.
Hardships test our love,
Through the chill autumn season
into winter’s arms.
