Daily Prompts – Mercy

Do I have a choice
Or chalk it up to divine intervention
I am at the mercy of the wind
The waves
The duress of the weather
I ponder life in this moment
The present and past
As I pull the sails
In an instant, I tip
My craft
Covered by water
I try to swim
But the ocean consumes me

And my future

Thank you for the following prompts:




Cover, Choice, Instant

  1. A stunning photo! A powerful and thought-provoking poem that conveys a great deal of emotion in few words. Wow! You may want to think about putting together a book of poetry in the future. Since I began blogging, I have been reading beautiful and creative poetry. Possibly when your 8 month old and 2 year old leave the house.🙂
