At this point, I'm just procrastinating. When the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and weeds are popping back up, it can be a challenge to stay indoors and complete writing tasks.

I have Brenda's latest prompt in the back of my mind and I hope to have something for you soon. In the meantime, here's another piece I think is worth sharing.

This is a take on the theme of hope. In my typical fashion, I have approached it from a surprising angle.

Enjoy.

The light is there

just beyond reach.

I keep banging my head

against this wall,

as much as I try,

I can't escape

this invisible field.

But this persistence

just won't fade,

so here I'll stay

wishing to go;

peering out

from behind the glass

wondering why

I'll never reach

that golden orb

calling my name.
