PROMPT #359 – FALL BACK / SPRING AHEAD

Here we are again! Time to change the clocks for Daylight Savings. In the Fall, we fall back; Spring has us Spring Ahead. Choose your direction and write it into your poem!

WALTZ TIME:

POUNCE
Waiting in the thicket
eyes focused and nerves steeled,
in the field of schemes
you anticipate the moment to strike.
You like your odds, the cards in your favor.
You savor your dominance,
a chance to spring ahead.
It's either pounce or be left for dead.

(C) Walter J Wojtanik – 2021

If you’ve noticed, Marie has been missing in action as she is recovering from illness. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She’s a tough cookie. She says she’ll be back when she builds her strength back a bit. Get well soon, Pard!
