Scarlet, As a Song

A trill,
a flash of red,
note unmistakeable –
loves echoes scatter through the air
hearts soar…

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. love echoes scatter through the air – perfect description of their voice.
    I’m never certain if they are saying ‘birdie, birdie, birdie’ or ‘pretty, pretty, pretty’ – either way!

  2. Thanks for sharing the link to information on this poetic form. I love what you’ve done with this one. I am facilitating a writer’s group on Monday and I think I will use this as one of the prompts.
