The Mountain – (a Duet) Finish it Friday

Written by; Robert Louis Covington (Italics) & Kelly Lewis

Calming beauty and mystery
Circling valleys with majesty

I call upon thee greenery
Shifting mantels of prosperity
To fill me with your serenity

– A “Finish it Friday” prompt from the Inlandia Institute featuring fellow IECWC member Robert Louis Covington’s piece ‘The Mountain’

Hate Crimes – #Tanka

Towering over,
ill placed egos swell with pride
while victims cower

suffering from their birth rights
subject to fearful hate crimes
