Light at the End of the Tunnel – Crimsons’s Creative Challenge #54

Missed last week’s challenge. Some days the muse just leaves me hanging. She can be so persnickety at times, can’t she?

When I saw this picture I was reminded of one I had taken that was similar-ish. My search brought me to more than one! I even had to drop one as a haiku is but three lines long 😉  I hope having a picture between each line does not break up the rhythm too much…

Thanks, Crispina, for challenging us week after week!

The endless arches

Went on and on, yet he hoped

He would find the light

Word Prompt

Liminal

Challenge

A huge thank you to Sammi for hosting this special challenge. I am always pushed to find some way to bring her chosen word to life. Not always an easy task!

 

Everywhere and Nowhere

She was quite convinced

It was impossible to arrive

At that delicious point

Between sleep

and wake

Intentionally

Surely it was a gift from the Universe

To find oneself at that liminal point

Aware of our surroundings

Yet feeling the dream slowly

Take hold so that we find ourselves

Not here, nor there

But everywhere and nowhere

 

 

Highs and Lows

Highs and Lows

You crash every party

Your body not present

But your aura hovers, waiting

And then it starts

One memory begets another

Each one adding their part

In their story of you

Soon all are are laughing

Myself included

‘Til I drive home, alone

Lost for a little while

Word Prompt

Ineffable

Challenge

I canna lie… I struggled with this one.  Thank you, Sammi, for making me struggle week after week! Okay, some weeks more than others 😉

 

Without Words

There are those who cannot speak the words

To describe the ineffable beauty before them

While the phrases flow beautifully in their mind

The words clog in their throat, or

Tumble out as incoherent gibberish

 

Oh, but give them pen and paper

And witness the magic they create

By turning mere words into visions

That tickle your imagination

So it is now you, dear reader

Who is left without words

Word Prompt

Twilight

Challenge

 

Bewitching Hours

It is a gift

To be able to witness

A light so enchanting

It can only be found in the in-betweens of

Dawn and sunrise or

Sunset and dusk

Twilight

When the Earth’s Sun

Scatters light into the atmosphere

Leaving us bewitched, not once, but twice

Aurora

I love these challenges. For reasons unknown to me, they push me to try different things. Thank you, Sammi!

Dawn

She wakened slowly to his gentle caress

As the glow of the aurora

Slipped through the curtains

Adding warmth to her

Already tingling flesh

She smiled her acquiescence

Ultimatum

 

Clean your room if you want to go out

Give me better conditions or I’ll work elsewhere

Marry me or I am leaving you

 

Issuing a demand, the refusal of which

Will result in the end of something

 

Who reacts well to an ultimatum?

And, if accepted, how can it not affect

The relationship negatively?

 

It will forever hold a place within
