Combining Two Prompts

At Sunday Scribblings the prompt is  “aging”.  “Smoke” is the prompt at One Single Impression.  It worked out to combine the two.

smoke tendrils caress
facial lines aged, creased, alone
frequent cough, raspy
yellow fingertips
light the match once  more

Both sites have great takes on the prompts. Be sure to visit. 

National Poetry Month begins in two days.  Students at my school are preparing poetry postcards.  Do you want one sent to you? Contact me.

  11. Deceptively gentle opening image hides a stark poetic truth – smoke like that does tend to leave it’s mark!
