Daily Prompt: With or Without You #photography

Tell us about the time you threw down the gauntlet and drew the proverbial line in the sand by giving someone an ultimatum. If you’ve never handed out an ultimatum but secretly wanted to, describe the scene and what you would say to put an end (one way or another) to an untenable situation.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us COMPLEX.

Battle with Winter #winter #poetry #photography

and fold her broken wing

penned in moon dust

shadows

winter’s harshness

dealt a blow today

one you will never feel

or know

but for the life

of one frail bird

struggling to survive

it took the wind

from beneath her wings

her song swallowed

she did her best

resolved

she used her two feet

to get her

to a place

where she could

lay her head

and fold her broken wing

*

Each day, I watch nature as it tries to endure the cold. Last week I had my own battle with winter and lost. So I like the bird am minus one wing and striving to write with a hand that does not know how.

stay warm and safe…
