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’

Levels of Crazy

 

It never ceases to amaze me
How many levels there are to crazy
When you stand back and look
You realize it’s not a fictional book

Memoirs at fingertips, waiting
All the while I’m here anticipating
The backlash that has me debating
If the truth is even worth saying

The Who, when, where and why
Changed to protect innocent lives
From the incriminating evidence
To keep from being that elephant

The Long Haul

You can’t be in it just for a day
Your heart needs to be committed to stay
Knowing that there’ll be barriers along the way
To overcome by being honest – mean what you say

Now listen to what isn’t being said
I want you to get it all out of your head
Our words are meant to be shared, spoken and read
So give yourself the permission needed to move ahead

Hunker down it’ll be a long haul
Don’t be afraid I’ll catch you if you fall
Always remember that you’ll never please them all
It’s up to you now, there’s no time left to waste or stall

 


Prompt from Saturday (thanks Judy!) and for my friends over at the IECWC.

Flamingo Pink – CYW

Think!
It’s Flamingo Pink

There’s no rhyme
That comes to mind
“So What,” she sings
Young girls believe
Wearing VS fashions
Splayed across asses
How did this happen?
The Pink Panther
A cartoon character,
Or a mixed drink?
Both bring laughter
On painted lips,
And kept fingertips
Driving Barbie’s car
This has gone too far
