Lake Dock

Lake Dock Bobby Mikul

The sun shone brightly

Sparkles illuminated

Waves that lapped the dock

The Prompts:

“Use one or more of these phrases, as a seed, a skeleton, a refill, whatever works

boxes where I keep
do you hear yourself
when there’s nothing else to do
taste of the frosting
overlooking the city
they need to hear their
nests, the speckled eggs
holding us
you take turns
which they pass one by one
you are not finished
all but gone
you know who you are
without a word of explanation
secret handshake
it can’t be wrong to love the
standing on the other side
as the snow continues to fall
have enough problems as it is
as if it doesn’t mean
her expensive dress
waves that lapped the dock
mail them packages of
there is something democratic about
but you are always
the children invent
beyond the first sign
those boats”

Thanks Miz Quickly for all your great prompts!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
