I am participating at @bethkempton Winter Writing Sanctuary and loving it.

Here’s a poem inspired by the first day’s prompt.


The water tugs at my hair
my lips are turning blue
It is dangerous
but I’m having a boo

Where will it take me
will I arrive before the night
It is cold
but I’m warm inside

The water is moving
and I am lingering
It is soothing
but I’m almost drowning

Where will I end up
what am I trying to find
It is a mystery
but I want to stay behind

The water is cleansing
it washes me away
It is showing me a home
where I want to stay
