unspoken judgment

into the ‘fiery wind’ what would I say?

scratched dirt jams my nails to the quicks…

this heaviness of breath, this seeping energy

if I ask…

will you admit your unspoken truth?

or brush it off with a laugh?

next time, I may speak.

:

This is a quadrille (poem of 44 words) using the dVerse prompt word ‘quick’. Thanks and credit must go to Jane Dougherty whose use of the phrase ‘words in the fiery wind’ in a recent poem, inspired me to write today.

    1. Yes the poems, the feelings are quite different…I was hoping to acknowledge your words while avoiding a misleading impression of your poem… your question about asking is an interesting one…

    1. Thank you :)) I like those words (fiery wind) too and the totally different poem of Jane Dougherty that they came from. Those words, current rumblings inside me and the word quick seemed to all belong together.
