Totally Optional Prompts: Discoveries, new and old.







Re-Write

judgment of right
claimed by the wrong

summations of black
stained with off-white

not enough to turn gray
and too little for light

man writes with ink but
schemes crash in a blink

on a street corner
in the darkest of days




Original digital watercolor painting: Created on BambooFun

Phew!
