A to Z Blog Challenge Meets NaPoWriMo

Guest Post by Crystal Thieringer of Muse & Meander:

I met Crystal almost a year and a half ago in the My 500 Words Facebook group.  An easy friendship formed, and I have been blessed to be in several incarnations of smaller writing groups with her.  I quickly learned that when one wanted the unvarnished truth about a piece of one’s writing, but truth diplomatically delivered, Crystal was the woman to seek out.  Today she takes the letter W and shares a poem she wrote about a precious, ephemeral gift she was witness to.

WINDOW

Wonder

“I saw this, I thought of you.”

Perfect

 

Watching

Changing daily, personalities emerging

Magical

 

Warming

Plaintive cries, sibling rivalry, exploring together

Sweet

 

Witness

Curiosity, new toes, clicking sounds

Amusing

 

Wakeful

Testing limits, flexing muscles, finding brave

Charming

 

Winging

Soundless, sad, so quick

Right

 

Wistful

One more hour, one more day, maybe two

Mournful

 

Waiting

A call, an answer, a heartbeat response

Fleeting

 

Worried

Did you fall? Were you hurt? Were you hiding?

Frightening

 

Waffling

Go, don’t go, go, no don’t

Weeping

 

Wholeness

Owlets on the rooftop

Gift
