Solitaire for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts posts: Solitaire.




Queen of Hearts

queen of hearts
walks her footprints
into white sand

she wears a smile
bears a special shell
and her dreams in hand

a redeal of cards ~
no rags of regret
unfurl from the past

ahead of the wind
she moves without haste
keeps an ace in her sleeve



Original watercolor by Sue...

I like the picture, and I like the line about keeping an ace up her sleeve.

The metaphors work well with the idea.

A haiku poem amazing!

Very unique writing there. I'm ambi-brainless myself, using neither the right nor the left of my mind at times. I think they its a result of work or too much coffee and tea. Still nice poetry!

I.M. Ulysses said...

Interesting work! Very unique. Your left brain must be working over time...or is that your right?
Hmm. Well good job regardless.

C. R. Stone said...

Jeeves said...

Brilliant art. Such lovely words. Enjoyed both

Richard Wells said...

tumble! very well done. i like how every stanza has an allusion to the game. one nit to pick: "up" her sleeve.

Sue said...

So many wonderful phrases! But if I had to pick, my favorite I'd say: "bears a special shell/and her dreams in hand"

Linda Jacobs said...

I like how the first stanza sets the scene. I can see her on the beach in the wind.

Love the ending!

Marcia said...
