Wordy Wednesday: Four Poems

Hello Poetteers,

I answered some prompts from POETS ON A PAGE and thought I should share (:

Arid

Dirt roads, ghost town
old, empty, alone
a mailbox, a flower still stands

A sign, someone lost
gives hope, settles
a house, a store
comes up

Once arid, now alive.

Love

Hydrate myself for the day
giving love to a cute, little furball
to expand my giving love
for later
a garden, a ball
mysterious to guests
receiving roses
find one, a lover
reveal myself, we escape
we dance
I leave
letting my head fall
into dreams of seeing him again.

They Say

They say write without thought
without critique
I do this everyday
they say do something different
I can't
if it'll ruin my love
if it'll cause me to think too much
just let me be.

Sick

Why write of such a sad thing
yet I started this love with sorrow
but now I look back
glad I did
it helps us heal
but now may be different
I get sick, I laugh
I won't question anymore
God is here, helping me.

Winter

Dark and cold
bringing aches and sorrow
it's all too long
a sign of sun
water splashing
maybe coming sooner
ready as ever
like me.

Love and thank you, Fida

love the upbeat poems, taking some negatives and making them positive!
fave line today - Hydrate myself for the day !
