Free Verse, Month Of Mini Writing Challenges 2017, Poetry by Sarah


In the beginning my heart was brave.
She asked “Is there anyone out there who will
love me ’til the end?”

An echo replied, “I will love you for a little while,
But I cannot promise eternity

Eventually, when my heart was cleaved in two.
She asked, “Will anyone love me,
when I am so  broken?”

The echo replied, “Nay.”

My heart realised that first,
she must love herself.
She put out the call, one last time.
“Is there anyone who will love me,
Just as I am?

This time, the echo,
Was an echo of her own words.
At last! My heart had found you.

And we both realised,
We had been looking
For each other all along.

Haiku / Senryu, Poetry by Sarah

Fate Making

Dark Tarot

turning over cards
a dark prophecy her fate;
chose to make her own.

Lady Luck

she kissed the die twice
then threw them on the table
fate had made her day

as fate would have it,
it was all downhill from here
make the best of it
