The prompt for Week 20 is based on this photograph. Could be a love poem, a dream sequence, a wishful moment, a memory. Whatever the photo says to you will paint this portrait in words.
UPON THE LAKE OF WISHFUL DREAMS
Stretched out like a future bright
and promising, young love rapt
in wishful dreams. Hopes for a life
ripe for the picking hang seductively
within reach. She is headstrong
and determined, a beauty in style,
her demeanor reeks of compassion
and an eye for fashion that augments
nature’s handiwork. He, a young man
doubtful, but very giving and loving,
a handsome lout, dark and chiseled,
charged and ready for action.
A class act in her eyes and heart.
Their vision focused, futures joined in unison
adrift upon the lake of wishful dreams.
TIME FOR MARIE ELENA
We watch the sun set
Our love stealing away time
We watch the sun rise
