2nd Word Challenge Winner (The Road)

Thank you to those who submitted to my 2nd Word Challenge--very impressive! The winning submission was Dawn with the following poem. I am posting the original picture so you can get the full affect. Way to go Dawn!

And once again, this path my feet will trod
Crunch, Pat, Spat, Scritch
Familiar calls of ghosts past,
Of expectant breaths breathing, and
Hands yet to be filled.

Into the Morning Twilight
My own self pluming and reaching into the day
I step into the unknown abyss of expectation
and exhilaration.

Once again, this path my feet have trod
Crunch, Pat, Spat, Scritch
As a child no more
I approach the bend
to another somewhere new

  1. Great choice, Helen. I couldn't agree more! I'm always amazed at how poets get so much into so little.
