In honor of completing my 5 x 15 (and beyond) writing challenge, I wrote a poem.


My prompt greets me each day

Like a sun salutation in my inbox

Words have power

Even when they are small

It’s all in how you string them together

A necklace of my own design

Rich with texture my favorite gems

I make it just so just for me

And I say that as long as I love it nothing else matters

But deep down I want it to catch the eye of the other

I want them to love it too

I take a risk

I create

I wait
