Rattler has a class starting soon, so this will have to be quick. Rattler completed the day 16 challenge, which was to write a poem inspired by the one she posted yesterday. Rattler doesn’t know why she’s referring to herself in the third person. Haha I’m not sure what I think of this one, it just kind of… happened. Which, I suppose, is the whole idea of inspiration, right?
The rain pounds all around,
Lightening shatters the black of night,
Thunder rolls its growling sound,
The wind and branches fight.
I quiver in fear, balled up on the ground,
No strength to battle the sights and sounds,
My knees hit the earth, and you wrap all around.
In you, strength and peace forever abound,
On you, I pray, let my feet always be found!
Please tell me what you think! I am always seeking to improve my craft, but I can’t do that without outside opinions and suggestions. After all, we can’t see the log in our own eye!
